After becoming a rap icon and making a name of his own in the fashion industry with Yeezy, his clothing brand in association with Adidas, Kanye West is ready to venture into a new word: philosophy.

In an interview with interior designer Axel Vervoordt for The Hollywood Reporter, the prolific Chicago musician revealed that he’s working on a book, titled Break the Simulation, which will be all about his philosophical musings.

“I’ve got a concept about photographs, and I’m on the fence about photographs — about human beings being obsessed with photographs — because it takes you out of the now and transports you into the past or transports you into the future. It can be used to document, but a lot of times it overtakes [people]. People dwell too much in the memories. People always wanna hear the history of something, which is important, but I think it there’s too much of an importance put on history.”

Well—that’s quite something coming from the husband of a woman who literally has a book that features hundreds of personal selfies.

Of course, Twitter has a lot of thoughts on Kanye’s new facet as the Aristotle of the new millennium. See some of the funniest reactions to West’s upcoming Break the Simulation philosophy book.
