According to various interpretations, “Blame Game” by Kanye West explores the complexities of a relationship dynamic, the idea of mutually shared responsibility, and the power to both hurt and heal. The song speaks to the unique difficulties and emotions associated with maintaining a healthy, long-term relationship with another person, something that Kanye and his wife, Kim Kardashian, would be familiar with. There are also religious undertones as Kanye compares the relationship to that of Adam and Eve – two people who were supposed to uphold a perfect, love-filled relationship that didn’t always go according to plan. Ultimately, the idea of blame is central to the song, with each partner taking responsibility for their mistakes. Ultimately, Kanye asserts that both lovers in the relationship should blame themselves, not each other.
