Darn, the image didn't post. I don't really feel like opening photoshop to change it to a jpeg, so I guess you'll have to use your noggin' to imagine Kanye making an embarrassingly nerdy and almost nearly pretentious fashion statement. The images you'll find on Google search were nearly as bad anyway.

Rapper Kanye West does not read books or respect them but nevertheless he has written one that he would like you to buy and read.

...

His book is 52 pages — some blank, others with just a few words — and offers his optimistic philosophy on life. One two-page section reads, “Life is 5% what happens and 95% how you react!” Another page reads “I hate the word hate!”

Cunga, Friday, 29 May 2009 17:06 (ten years ago) link

His book is 52 pages — some blank, others with just a few words. . .

Why write a book? Just Twitter it.

Daniel, Esq., Friday, 29 May 2009 17:10 (ten years ago) link

anyone who buys this deserves it, IMO

I wish I was famous enough to get a publisher to put out 50 pages of gibberish; I could use the extra $$$.

helgo already turned it into a screenname but i still can't get over that "I would never want a book's autograph" quote

Ømår Littel (Jordan), Friday, 29 May 2009 17:18 (ten years ago) link

loooooooooooooool

“Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed,” West said. “I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph."

This guy should stop while he's (barely) ahead and try to pass this book off as a tribute to e.e. cummings or something.

Cunga, Friday, 29 May 2009 17:20 (ten years ago) link

It's kind of funny how the last few months Kanye's been earnestly admitting he needs to stop being an embarrassing logorrheic trainwreck all the time, but he's clearly incapable of being anything else.

808s was my favorite album of last year but this 52 page "book" sounds like complete and utter shit.

I hate to admit it but this week I’m revisiting Kids See Ghosts and I didn’t hate it. I even think that the last three songs in there are some of the best stuff either one of them has been involved with in quite some time.

I think I’ve even played Reborn once every day. I’m a monster.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 03:24 (three months ago) link

Yeah, I don't really care about Kanye anymore (roughly since MBDTF... wow almost 10y !) but that album is not bad and "Reborn" is good.

AlXTC from Paris, Tuesday, 11 June 2019 09:26 (three months ago) link

reborn is great.

to be clear, he's done many awful things in the past few years--the thing i hated the most was the photo he used for the cover of daytona, extremely exploitative. this is also bad and i hope that george jackson wins the lawsuit.

Trϵϵship, Tuesday, 11 June 2019 11:49 (three months ago) link

i don't really understand how he continues to release music this good though, given what a mess he is. the stuff he put out last year was a mixed bag but mostly good.

Kanye feeling penitent all of a sudden? Too much of a naughty boy the last year? Gonna break into that alt-right God market with a Christian rap concept album? What now? Changing his nickname from Yeezus to Jesus and the album is him slovenly rapping about how he and all of you should worship him even more now?

somehow people still seem to like kids see ghosts but i don't think even the die-hards really liked ye much. it still manages to seem overrated though when compared to the absurd backlash that chance's new album got

ufo, Friday, 30 August 2019 16:47 (three weeks ago) link

kids see ghosts was fine, mostly the songs where kanye was least involved (vocally, anyway)

finally a hardline shakey opinion i agree with. there have been good moments here and there though. i weirdly loved “i love it”

808s and heartbreak was a high-point imo.

is that gourmet hot-take or quite weak?

the stuff about 'stealing samples' upthread is kind of dumb, the deal is he takes losses on the back end to make sure he clears his albums when he needs them to and they dont get bogged down in delays. In other words, he makes way less money in the long run in order to use what samples he wants

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Saturday, 31 August 2019 00:11 (two weeks ago) link

sacrificing the bottom line for his art, what a heel!

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Saturday, 31 August 2019 00:11 (two weeks ago) link

I like "I Love It" and "Real Friends" the most of his recent stuff. Yeezus is interesting and there's a good drum n bass remix of bound 2 lol

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Saturday, 31 August 2019 00:12 (two weeks ago) link

first half and last two tracks of yeezus are pretty great i should’ve said

pablo’s rough and often bad but i love “fade” etc.

I find the developing narrative about uncleared samples being 'stealing' a little bit too easy as well. I think it's fascinating how increasingly reckless he's become about licensing while on a major label. It's part of the statement of the last few releases, mastered seconds before being uploaded. I kind of respond to it -- make sampling dangerous again! But from him it's also inevitably a statement about power, the Robert Fripp & Richard D James interviews about negotiating with his team are intense.

Do you have a link / interview about the deal he has with his label in which uncleared samples discovered later are handled?

Milton Parker, Saturday, 31 August 2019 03:35 (two weeks ago) link

he didn't become shit until Ye, that record was horrible. Yeezus is a masterpiece imo but Brad's breakdown is closer to the truth. totally disagree about Pablo though, that album has so much to offer and belongs in the same class of beguiling double albums as Lulu, Joni's Don Juan, and The Fragile. the plummet he took from the heights of Pablo - Real Friends, 30 Hours, Ultralight Beam, Feedback, I Love Kanye - is stunning.

flappy bird, Saturday, 31 August 2019 05:15 (two weeks ago) link

MBDTF has some good moments but is way overrated everywhere else, most tracks start out decent enough but then wear out their welcome way before their generally ~6+ minute run times are up

Yeezus is still pretty great

The Life of Pablo is just a mess, for every good track there's another two that seem very unfinished and it doesn't hold together as an album at all

ufo, Saturday, 31 August 2019 05:35 (two weeks ago) link

I don't really liked twisted fantasy

flappy bird, Saturday, 31 August 2019 05:41 (two weeks ago) link

If it’s like the Pablo rollout, guessing half the titles will change and the album will be back to Yahndi by the end.

... (Eazy), Saturday, 31 August 2019 13:28 (two weeks ago) link

wld take the two after 808s over the two before it but idk if there's anyone else in the "late registration is esp boring" camp besides meaghan garvey

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Saturday, 31 August 2019 18:31 (two weeks ago) link

i think it holds together ridiculously well, honestly, at least until 'wolves,' which is where the original album was supposed to end (according to the first draft of ye's notebook). the transitions between songs are seamless, and imo each individual song sounds wrong without the one before or after it.

i agree that the last few tracks are very haphazardly assembled, but weirdly, those are the ones that sound good on their own!
