Kanye West announced on Twitter Wednesday that he is writing a philosophy book on the social media site in real time, according to Kirsten Chuba, an editorial intern at the well known entertainment industry news magazine Variety.
“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,” Kanye West tweeted. “I will work on this ‘book’ when I feel it. 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.”
Then Kanye West, who recently returned to Twitter, gave his followers life guidance through a series of tweets. Among the advice included, “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,” along with preaching for his fans not to follow crowds and to stop lying.
“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,” Kanye West added.
The artist recently announced he was writing a book called “Break the Simulation” about art and spirituality with his interior designer, Axel Vervoordt. He said the book would focus on why society loves photographs. It’s unclear if this Twitter project is a part of that book or is a separate piece.
This is not the first time Kanye West has worked on a project in real-time, as he revised his most recent “The Life of Pablo” album twice after it was released.
