Episode Info

Episode Info: We continue our serialized examination of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West with Part 2 of our “Runaway” double-episode. After an examination of Pusha T’s “we need more douchebag” verse, we discover how the instrumental outro reorchestrates the song’s first six minutes with just cellos and piano. We make a slight detour to talk Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Greek Mythology, Order, Chaos, and more — all to better understand why we find Kanye’s wordless concluding solo so moving. Finally, we look at Runaway’s premiere at the 2010 VMAs, a career-defining moment for a victorious Kanye West. Listen to “Runaway” on Apple Podcasts.
