James Franco & Seth Rogen – "Bound 3 (Kanye West Spoof)" | Music Video

437ff921b32c15f168fb76b735fa09ba_fullsize

It's safe to say that Kanye West's visual treatment for "Bound 2" became one of the year's biggest laughing moments in Hip-Hop unintentionally.

Adding fuel to the fire is non other than Pineapple Express co-stars James Franco and Seth Rogen with their shot-for-shot remake of Yeezus's closer. Franco takes on the role as West while Rogen hilariously does his best Kim Kardashian; blank facial expressions and all. In turn, the two create a video that's intentionally comical unlike the G.O.O.D. Music captain. The video comes as the two film the upcoming film The Interview. 

Interestingly enough, West has actually stayed quiet about the spoof. Strange considering how he handled Jimmy Kimmel's parody of his BBC interview.

Watch below and let us know what you think.

jay-z-ron-howard

Jay Z takes us behind the scenes of his multi-genre extravaganza, the "Made In America" festival held in Philadelphia last year. The event was carefully pieced together by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard and this 90-minute documentary showcases everything from the announcement of the show, rehearsals, performance footage and interviews with various artists who took part in the the two-day event.

A concert documentary wouldn't be complete without, of course, some crisp stage performances and this film contains that in abundance. Featured artists include the likes of Run-DMC, D'Angelo, Odd Future, Pearl Jam, Jill Scott, Skrillex, Janelle Monáe and Rita Ora amongst others.

Throughout the documentary we certainly get an understanding of the concept and thinking behind putting on such a spectacle, and just what the title "Made In America" means to everybody involved.
