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.
when you first wake up don't hop right on the phone or the internet or even speak to anyone for even up to an hour if possible. Just be still and enjoy your own imagination. It's better than any movie.
You have the best ideas. Other people's opinions are usually more distractive than informative. Follow your own vision. base your actions on love. Do things you love and if you don't absolutely love something stop doing it as soon as you can.
I don't believe in the concept of an enemy. We have been conditioned to always be in competition. Stop looking for something to beat and just be. You don't have to do all the work. Once you start moving in love the universe will assist you.
You will be a drop of water with the ocean as your army. If you move out of fear than your on your own. Then it's just you and the money and the countless people you have to lie to and manipulate to build a man made path that will never lead to true happiness.
in life, we are all trained actors. When we're born we're ourselves and then one of the first things we're thought is how to act. If you see a kid screaming at a restaurant because he feels something and can't express himself in a conventional manner
me and my friend Anthony Schiller always ask questions about time. Is time linear? I recently did an interview where I placed a high value on time. Everything means nothing until you make it something. You are your validator.
Be here now. Be in the moment. The now is the greatest moment of our lives and it just keeps getting better. The bad parts the boring parts the parts with high anxiety. Embrace every moment for its greatness. This is life. This is the greatest movie we will ever see.
There's love stories. Pain happiness. It's 3 dementional. There's taste touch sound. It's the most entertaining for of entertainment. Just being. We believe time is a man made construct. Actually time and money are both man made currency. Because you can spend them both.
I find myself getting stuck in the idea of originality and letting my ego push me to say things like "this person stole this from me" and the funny thing is it'll be a reference I took from somewhere 😂
let's be less concerned with ownership of ideas. It is important that ideas see the light of day even if you don't get the credit for them. Let's be less concerned with credit awards and external validation.
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."
