Kanye West Is Live Tweeting His New Philosophy Book

Read his stream of consciousness here.

Last week Kanye West sat down with designer Axel Vervoordt to discuss their passion for art, design and everything in between. As the two spoke in the interview, West revealed that he would be writing a philosophy book titled Break the Simulation. ‘Ye shared that the book would survey his thoughts and include photographs and other documents he’s collected over the years.

After an extended hiatus, Kanye returned to Twitter to troll Nike for its copycat M2K Tekno shoe and kept his account active, posting YEEZY footwear prototypes of his boots and sneakers. This morning he continued to share more of his thoughts punctuating his stream of consciousness with a confession that Twitter will serve as the platform for the book. He nonchalantly adds:
