Here's what Kanye West's 'Bound 2' looks like as a sweet children's book
Illustrator and graphic designer Zak Tebbal has transformed a dream we didn’t realize we had into reality: He’s created a wonderful children’s book out of Kanye West’s song “Bound 2,” called Bound 2gether.
Bound 2gether follows Kanye, “the coolest kid in town,” and his chick, Kim, an actual baby chick. When Kim goes missing, Kanye has to search “all night and all day” for her, until he finally learns that “One good chick is worth one thousand chickens.” Awww.
In an interview with The FADER, Tebbal says he made the book as part of his senior design thesis at New York City’s School of Visual Arts, where “the prompt was to take an important piece of art and translate it into another medium.”
“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,” Tebbal tells The FADER, “and they are missing out on some of the important life lessons that Kanye has to offer. As a big Kanye fan, I felt the need to fill this void.”
And lest you think “Kanye-for-kids” ends here, Tebbal has another project in the works. Baby Yeezus is a lullaby version of the Yeezus album. Listen to a sample below (then play it for every baby you know):
