Bound 2 was, in my opinion, one of the best songs off Kanye’s last album. With the Rogen-Franco frame by frame remake, I loved it even more. But I was probably like many in asking Bound2? What per say was Bound 1 then? Well, on February 16th, Hidden Lab posted live footage of Hudson Mohawke showing the world what many believe to be the original version of Bound 2. It was done during a set in the UK on Valentine’s weekend.
Now, someone has taken the video and remade the song to sound like Mohawk (who was one of the producers on Yeezus) might have intended before Rick Ruben might have stepped in. The remake has mixed reviews. Some people are hating on Rick Rubin for taking this song, and possibly the entire album, and destroying what they believe could have been Kanye’s swan song. Others believe Rick helped Kanye develop an album ahead of it’s time. What ever fence you fall on, it’s undeniable that both version are great. See what you think here.
