Kanye West is set to return from his extensive hiatus to deliver something that you may not expect: a new book — and nope, it’s not about music.
The rapper recently confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter, that he is writing a book titled Break The Simulation, which will center around the topics of philosophy and society’s current obsession with trends.
“I’ve got a concept about photographs… aboout 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,” he said. “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.”
Going into extreme-Kanye territory, he then added that a designer told him that his wife “was a master of light” and he “was a master of time.”
After mentioning that he predicts the Class of 2500 looking back at the West-Kardashians’ work for inspiration, he added that Kim is way more than a pretty face.
“Even with my wife, I see her as a representation, as a Marie Antoinette of our time,” he said. “So with your mentality with spaces, I believe that what we’ve been working on will represent humanity for the next 500 to 1,000 years.”
