Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Season 2, Ep. 23

Trick question. If The Beatles were bigger than Jesus, were they bigger or smaller than Yeezus? Before you answer, consider listening to this high energy episode on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy from 2010. No two men should have all that power so the boys brought in Max Perenchio aka The Pelican Boy to chop it up about the writing, recording, and baffling story behind this album. Not interested in rap? Good news, the three of us are here to change your mind and open you up to the genre. Already a fan? Get ready to yell at a podcast that is absolutely not live. We spent four hours working out together and did several charitable deeds before recording this episode in a hotel room, so please pay it forward. Have you ever listened to a podcast about a pharaoh that put sissies in a sarcophagus? Now hear this: "Power," "All of the Lights," "Monster," and "Devil in a New Dress."
