Last week, I talked with the truly talented, truly amazing Don Martin of the Most Unruly YouTube channel. Don is your man for all rap things cultural—he’s the one who covered the Yeezus tour and shows for the new collaborative Watch The Throne book that celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Yeezus album’s release. We chopped it up about the Rap Maestro’s greatest hits—Kanye, Kanye, Kanye, and more Kanye. Check it out, and be sure to subscribe to his channel!
