For those of you who didn’t see the Kanye West interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kanye called himself a “Creative Genius” in the middle of the interview. Jimmy was trying to let Kanye clear up some of the rumors about him. One of the rumors was that Kanye is full of himself, and thinks much too highly of his material. The very next thing out of Kanye’s mouth was the “Creative Genius” line. Poor Jimmy just sat there, finally realizing that he was wasting his time, and that most of the Kanye rumors are just plain true! So, Kanye’s “Yeezus” album has given birth to a “Hit Single” called “Bound 2”, which features Charlie Wilson on vocals. I first heard this song when Kanye premiered the music video for it on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The singing that Charlie Wilson does is phenomenal! The rest of the song…ehh…not so much. I may not be an audio genius, but even I knew that “Bound 2” was mixed TERRIBLY! The background music was WAY too thin, and the editing of the music was below amateur hobby level. As an added bonus, Kanye put very bad lyrics on top of that. I won’t quote them, because like always, they’re about having sex with Kim Kardashian, only this time, in the kitchen sink…yeeah…and if that were enough, and you know it really should be, the video is CHEESY AS EVER! WHOO! WHAT A DEAL! Creative genius? I think not!
