Watch Kanye West’s Video for ‘Bound 2′ Starring Kim Kardashian
By Jeremy D. Larson
Update: The full, uncensored and clearly NSFW video is now below.
As Kanye West continues his round of press tours, he follows in Drake’s footsteps and stops by Ellen to chat with Ms. DeGeneres in her comfy-looking chairs. During the show, Kanye premiered the video for the latest single from his unstopabble album Yeezus, “Bound 2″, which features Charlie Wilson on the hook and an old sample from a song called “Bound” from the soul group Ponderosa Twins Plus One.
For the video, however, it’s not quite as quaint. It’s classic Kanye — directed this time by Nick Knight — set against grand, surreal scenes of beauty and slow motion action. Ye and his new fiancée Kim Kardashian drive around on a motorcycle in front of some green screen nature settings while Ye just drops his verses, some of the more traditional ones that appeared on Yeezus. Spoiler: One of the two people starring this video are topless the entire time.
Kanye’s Yeezus tour is back on, and is going live at Barclays Center tonight in Brooklyn, NY, with Kendrick Lamar opening tonight (Nov. 19) and A Tribe Called Quest opening tomorrow (Nov. 20).
Update: Watch Kanye’s delightfully domestic interview with Ellen DeGeneres, and the original censored version of the video below:
