As part of his thesis from New York City’s School of Visual Arts, artist and illustrator Zak Tebbal transformed Kanye West‘s “Bound 2” music video into a children’s book titled, Bound 2Gether. The book 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.” In an interview with The Fader, Tebbal says:
“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. As a big Kanye fan, I felt the need to fill this void.”
