The burst of activity followed a rare interview with ‘Ye, conducted with his interior designer Axel Vervoordt and published by The Hollywood Reporter, in which the rapper announced that he was writing a philosophy book called Break the Simulation. In fact, as Kanye revealed yesterday, the book was in fact being written “real time” on Twitter.

“No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write,” Kanye wrote. “This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive.”
