For good reason, Kanye West has often been lauded for both his artistic virtuosity and transforming the Hip Hop cultural landscape for the whole world.
And now the Hip Hop mogul turned fashion designer has decided to share his beautiful mind through literature - by penning his very own philosophical book! 'Ye, who recently revealed intentions to surrender the race to being "number one" and instead focus on being more like water in a Hollywood Reporter conversation between him and interior designer Axel Vervoordt, has now taken to Twitter to begin the work on his upcoming philosophical book.
Empowering fans with nuggets of existential wisdom, thoughts on preserving artistic creativity and his general outlook on life, 'Ye returned from a long social media break to treat his followers to a long thread that he later revealed to be bits from the impending volume, in real time!
"Don't follow the crowd", he shared in one of the live writings. "Follow the innate feelings inside of you. Do what you feel not what you think. Thoughts have been placed in our heads to make everyone assimilate. Follow what you feel."
Fans and celebrities alike have been sharing the best from Kanye's tweets, picking out those they relate to the most from the lot. Amongst those is AKA, who replied to a tweet about too much emphasis on 'originality'. There's space for giving ideas one's own authentic update, says Kanye, and AKA agrees.

In addition to the book in the works, Kanye West is also said to be working on a follow-up album to The Life of Pablo. Various sources have confirmed that 'Ye has retreated to his studio in Wyoming, where he's been focusing on finishing the next project without external disturbances.
Which one are you looking forward to the most, the album or the book?
