Kanye West has a strong resume consisting of rapper, producer, designer, actor, father, husband, & did you know he’s technically a doctor considering he got his PH.D. from the Art Institute of Chicago? He’s ready to add a couple more things to that list- Philosopher & author. Yeezy recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for an interview & revealed that he’s currently working on a book about philosophy, & already has a title. “I’m writing a philosophy book right now called Break the Simulation,” he said. “I’ve got this philosophy — or let’s say it’s just a concept because sometimes philosophy sounds too heavy-handed. I’ve got a concept about photographs, and I’m on the fence about photographs — about human beings being obsessed with photographs — because it takes you out of the now and transports you into the past or transports you into the future. It can be used to document, but a lot of times it overtakes [people]. People dwell too much in the memories. People always wanna hear the history of something, which is important, but I think it there’s too much of an importance put on history.”
West also touched on the topic of ego, saying that it is something, “I fight with that every day.” He also claimed that “I don’t wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water.” Good luck with that, Kanye.
