Kanye West certainly knows his way around a talk show these days. Ye's hit up Fallon, fought with Jimmy Kimmel and even hopped across the pond for Jools Holland on his quest to be the King of Talk. Or was that rap? Or the world?

Anyways, his next oversized chair chat will be on Ellen. Which we're pretty excited about because Ellen DeGeneres is an expert at painfully embarrassing hip hop stars for our delight and pleasure. How ya' feeling today, Drake?

And Kanye West is an expert at embarrassing himself on talk shows for our delight and pleasure, so we can only imagine the bounty this union will bring!

In addition to potentially delightfully embarrassing moments, Yeezy's debuting the official music video for "Bound 2" on the show—which we're also pretty psyched about.

Ellen's website contains a little Easter egg relating to the upcoming vid. It reads:

"The always sensational rap mastermind KANYE WEST is here to drop the world-premiere video for his new single, "Bound 2," which may or may not feature his stunning and curvalicious fiancée Kim Kardashian."

We're intrigued. Kanye has been gushing a ton since the birth of his first child, North West, about how much he adores his baby mama turned fiancée, reality star Kim Kardashian.

And watching him gush is oddly heartrending—as opposed to the gag-reflux inducing you would expect. He just gets so damn kid-at-Christmas happy. And it melts our cold, black hearts...

'Ye will be bringing the love to Ellen this Tuesday.
