The Ellen Show Presents: Kanye & Kim Kardashian - "Bound 2" (Charlie Wilson)

The lone Soul-based track on Kanye's recent Death Grips-inspired Aggro-Hip-Hop album Yeezus, "Bound 2" essentially made me commit record-diggin' treason and buy a bootleg LP on South Street against my better judgement, which ended up being f*#king scratched mid-way through the coveted track! After performing it on a number of late night variety shows, Kanye finally debuted the official Nick Knight-directed "Bound 2" music video on Ellen Tuesday morning. It's a semi-strange trip across America's lush countryside, with new-found fiance Kim Kardashian awkwardly seated backwards on the front of Kanye's BITCHIN' motorcycle; Ellen kinda forgot to Tweet-ion [mention] that Kim's essentially topless and somehow, sans nipples, too. Knight manages to artfully inter-splice in images of wild horses, a Bald Eagle, Kanye in double flannel, and a bunch of all-American imagery that counter-echoes Kanye's Wes Lang-designed Confederate-leaning Yeezus Tour/Pac Sun line. Former Gap Band frontman and current G.O.O.D. Music signee, Charlie Wilson is physically nowhere to be found, but his unmistakeable vocal presence is littered throughout "Bound 2:" "I know you're tired of loving, of loving with nobody to love, nobody, nobody... Just grab somebody, no leaving this party with nobody to love, nobody, nobody!!!" While recently appearing on author Bret Easton Ellis' new podcast (on a completely unrelated note), Kanye offered up this interesting little tidbit: "I find myself now - when there's a Pop moment - like say the TV show Breaking Bad. Literally, me and my girl sat up in a hotel and had some days off and we said, 'Look let's just go ahead and watch this so we can be like normal human beings.'"
