Rapper Kanye West Turns Book Author

Posted by on May 26, 2009 5:02 PM |

kanye_west.jpgThe whole world has already been made very aware of Kanye West's talent when it comes to writing hit songs, and now the music impresario, who is a “proud non-reader,” has his eye on a different type of writing – a book.

The Grammy Award winner, known for his No. 1 albums and outspoken statements, is the co-author of Thank You And You're Welcome. The book features a collection of Kanye's personal philosophies. One two-page section reads, "Life is 5% what happens and 95% how you react!" Another page reads "I hate the word hate!"

"This is a collection of thoughts and theories," West, 31, said in an interview about his spiral-bound volume, which was written with J. Sakiya Sandifer. Kanye said he put his thoughts in a book because "I get paraphrased and misquoted all the time." He calls his wisdom "Kanye-isms."

West dedicates the book to his late mother. "My mom taught me to believe in my flyness and conquer my shyness," he said, defining "flyness" as confidence. "She raised me to be the voice to allow people to think for themselves, to find their own way."
