Kanye West Writing Philosophy Book Called “Break the Simulation”
Kanye West is no stranger to attempting to become a multi hyphenate. While it’s no question Kanye West is a legendary rapper and pop musician (and an equally fun celebrity personality), he’s also began his own fashion line, created a pilot in the style of Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” painted his hair blonde and met Donald Trump (it’s own art form, I am sure). Now, Kanye’s returning with a book on the philosophy of photography called “Break the Simulation.” Said Kanye West —
“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.”
