Kanye West just sat down with interior designer Axel Vervoordt and The Hollywood Reporter for an interview that's getting quite a bit of attention for its uniqueness.
In the interview, Kanye revealed that he's writing a philosophy book called Break the Simulation.
Kanye is writing philosophy/concept book because: “I'm on fence about (photos)—about human beings being obsessed with photographs—because it takes you out of now, transports you into past or into future...it overtakes [people]...there's too much of an importance put on history."— Chris Gardner (@chrissgardner) April 13, 2018

Kanye also expressed his interest in humanitarian efforts, stating:
"I don't wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water. I wish to be closer to UNICEF or something where I can take the information that I have and help as many people as possible, not just shove it into a brand."
That new Kanye interview on Hollywood Reporter just goes to show what a deep mind he has. It genuinely saddens me when people don't see that— Kepla (@Keplacuts) April 13, 2018
Other quotes of note include:
-"A designer told me that my wife was a master of light and I was a master of time. How to use time is equal to being someone who can cut a diamond."
-"I feel like Stephen Hawking. He changed his ideas and his theories all the time. After proving something right, he proved something wrong, right? Because there is no wrong or right, it's bipolarity, it is both sides."
-"I'm sorry to be heavy-handed. I'm only 4 years old."
[idk what that means, either. LoL!]
Kanye is really about to be the greatest philosopher of all time. Aristotle is shook https://t.co/HSHpzxkulW— Braden (@Tank4ever10) April 13, 2018

Some people have to work within the existing consciousness while some people can shift the consciousness— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 16, 2018
often people working with the existing consciousness are jealous of those who are more in touch and they become hard-core capitalist in hopes of creating the illusion that the value of money is worth more than the value of time and friends— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 16, 2018
