Kanye West is best known for his musical abilities. However, West has also branched out into various other endeavors including work in fashion and film. Now, he has linked up with philosopher/author J. Sakiya Sandifer to release “Thank You and You’re Welcome.”
West aknowledged that Sandifer was the inspiration behind the book from the jump.
“He inspired the format of the book, because he wrote a book called ‘Think, Think, Think and Think Again.’ [He did] bullet points in bold graphics, and he expounded upon them … whereas books hide the main points chapters in. You have to read so much to get so much out of it. We wanted to make it simple for people who are non-readers, who don’t feel like doing all that, and still get the point across,” he told MTV.com.
After taking the more simple aproach to the book, another one may be in the works. However, it will not be a second installment of a series.
“It’s just gonna be another collection of our ideas and theories,” Sandifer added. “It’s not gonna be like ‘Thank You and You’re Welcome Volume Two.’ I think that would be limiting.” In a statement, West added what this book was all about.
“My book is a guide to creating then celebrating your moment.”
Currently the book can be picked up on Kanye’s site for only ten dollars. The book will hit store shelves July 7.
