As if mentioning The Hunger Games in concert wasn't enough, Kanye West went back to it to explain the aesthetic of the "Bound 2" video which has gotten negative reviews from fans and media alike. Here's what he told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club about it:
"I wanted [Bound 2] to look as phony as possible. I wanted the cloud to go in one direction, the mountains to go in one direction, the horses to go over there. 'Cause I want to show you that this is the Hunger Games. I want to show you that this is the type of imagery that has been presented to all of us, and the only difference is a black dude in the middle of it."
