Kanye West revived his Twitter over the weekend, and it's already the gift that keeps on giving.
Kanye West revived his Twitter account over the weekend, and it's already the gift that keeps on giving.
On Wednesday, the 40-year-old rapper was again in a tweeting mood, sharing deep thoughts in another one of his infamous rants. West revealed that his tweets are actually part of his new book, which he's writing in real time.
"Oh by the way this is my book that I'm writing in real time," he 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."
"I will work on this 'book' when I feel it," he added. "When We sit still in the mornings We get hit with so many ideas and so many things We want to express. When I read this tweet to myself I didn't like how much I used the word I so I changed the I's to We's."
In a recent interview with interior designer Axel Vervoordt for The Hollywood Reporter, West dropped that he was writing a philosophical book he's calling Break the Simulation.
"I've got this philosophy -- or let's say it's just a concept because sometimes philosophy sounds too heavy-handed," he said. "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 there's too much of an importance put on history."
West dropped more gems on Wednesday, giving advice on how to express yourself, how to deal with competition and even the concept of time and originality.
On Thursday, West continued tweeting his philosophical thoughts.
He also tweeted a video of Lauryn Hill talking candidly about being herself.
West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, recently poked fun at the rapper's tweets with her good friend, model Chrissy Teigen. The gal-pals had an exchange over West's tweet that "Sometimes you have to get rid of everything," with Teigen jokingly offering Kardashian West and her kids a place to stay.
On a more serious note, Lamar Odom also responded to one of West's tweets -- a touching picture that West shared of the two arriving at his 2016 Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden in New York. The outing marked Odom’s first public appearance after being discovered unconscious in a Nevada brothel four months earlier.
"My favorite moment of walking into MSG to play Saint Pablo, I used to go to the hospital and play Lamar the album when he was learning to walk and talk again," West captioned the pic, posted last Sunday. "Then we walked into the arena together."
Odom, who was previously married to West's sister-in-law, Khloe Kardashian, replied, "Glad I could be there 4 u bro like u came thru 4 me. It was a big stage 2 be on after everything I went thru but it was worth it."
