Kanye West has been on a hiatus of sorts. Yeah, you may see the occasional paparazzi photo or hear about the private creative meetings in Wyoming, but when it comes down to actual content, Mr.West has been MIA in the best way. Today, he’s back. The hip-hop mogul teamed up with The Hollywood Reporter as he sat down to interview his interior designer Axel Vervoodt.
Though the interviews focus was on Vervoodt’s work, Kanye revealed his plans to release his philosophical thought of present and future in a book called “Break The Simulation”.
“I’ve got this new concept that I’ve been diggin’ into,” he states. “I’m writing a philosophy book right now called Break the Simulation. And I’ve got this philosophy—or let’s say it’s just a concept because sometimes philosophy sounds too heavy-handed. 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 it there’s too much of an importance put on history.”
