Popular American rapper Kanye West has just returned to twitter after an eleven month hiatus from the social media platform due to personal reasons. The rapper has announced his plans to write a philosophy book “in real time” in a bid to satisfy his “innate need to be expressive”.
The 40-year-old, who has racked up 21 Grammy Awards and is regarded as one of his genre’s all-time greats, has already posted a stream of tweets including advice for budding creatives.
Among tweets showing off new designs for his Yeezy footwear range, he told his 8.6m followers not to “follow crowds” and “do what you feel, not what you think”.
He later tweeted:
“Oh by the way this is my book that I’m writing in real time. No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write.
“This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive.”
He added: “I will work on this ‘book’ when I feel it.”
It is not clear if the Kanye West’s nuggets will eventually be printed in hard copy
“If you wanna see the true character of person watch the way they treat someone who can’t do anything for them,” he wrote in his latest post, which has been liked more than 176,000 times.
Here is one of the tweets from the iconic music producer:
when you first wake up don't hop right on the phone or the internet or even speak to anyone for even up to an hour if possible. Just be still and enjoy your own imagination. It's better than any movie.
