Kanye West’s ‘Bound 2′ Gets Reimagined Into a Children’s Book
We all remember Kanye West's chart-topping song "Bound 2" and it's infamous accompanying music video featuring a topless Kim Kardashian wrapped around her man while straddling a motorcycle. But did you ever think Yeezy's love ode would be inspiration for a children's book?
Illustrator/graphic designer Zak Tebbal remade West's song into a child's story time for a new book titled Bound 2Gether.
The tome tells the story of 'Ye and Kimmy who is a baby chick. The pair are inseparable until Kim gets jealous that Kanye is playing and devoting more attention to other baby chicks.
Her heart is broken from neglect so Kim runs away to leave Kanye pondering and missing her presence. The time apart does them well, because in the end, West concludes that "one good chick is worth a thousand chickens."
Tebbal tells The Fader that he made the book as part of his senior design thesis at New York's School of Visual Arts.
"The translation of 'Bound 2' into a children's book felt appropriate because the only audience that Kanye isn't reaching right now is toddlers, and they are missing out on some of the important life lessons that Kanye has to offer," he said. "As a big Kanye fan, I felt the need to fill this void."
