Kanye Is Writing His Philosophy Book in Real Time on Twitter
Kanye West made his bold return to Twitter last week after an 11-month hiatus. Since then, he's been firing off stream-of-consciousness tweets and addressing many of his feelings on society. In an interview with his interior designer, Axel Vervoordt, last week, Yeezy shared that he was was working on a philosophy book, Break the Simulation. Today (April 18), he unveils that the book may very well be published through a series of tweets.
“This is my book that I’m writing in real time," West wrote. "No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive.” He later added he will work on this book as he “feels like it.”
Yeezy gave his thoughts on topics ranging from individuality to parenting and much more in between through more than 15 lengthy tweets in less than two hours. The 41-year-old MC’s return to Twitter was welcomed by fans, who haven’t heard much from him in the past year since beginning his social media hiatus.
There is no category to truly encapsulate the “book” Kanye is working on, but the advice is sure to help young creatives looking to advance their careers.
The 21-time Grammy winner was spotted working on his upcoming album in the mountainous region of Wyoming last month (March 13) with superstar collaborators at his side. Artists making the trip included Kid Cudi, Nas, Travis Scott, Drake, Mike Dean, Pierre Bourne and many more.
