Kanye West has a lot of influence in music and it’s mainly due to his outspoken persona. The things he says in interviews have turned into mantras on life, where just about every ‘Ye stan has followed religiously.
Well, this new e-book titled The World According to Kanye could be your new bible. The folks at Wonder Shuttle and pxlfctry have teamed up to create this project that combines Yeezy’s quotes that span from best to even better. Topics include life, art, music, self-esteem, creativity, clothes and many more told through Kanye’s words of wisdom, advice and reflection. If you ever need inspiration or something to lift your spirits, this book is highly recommended. Here are some we particularly liked:
The only thing promised is death. Basically, life is like a game. You have to play the game the way you want to play it.
I want my music to be played the same place you could play a Feist song, but I want it to still work in a strip club, still work in a car.
The time is now for it to be okay to be great. People in this world shun people for being great. For being a bright color. For standing out. But the time is now to be okay to be the greatest you.
Well, influence isn’t my definition of success — it’s a by-product of my creativity. I just want to create more. I would be fine with making less money. I actually spend the majority of my money attempting to create more things.
It means a lot to be able to get respect from my core and peers even though everybody knows I get a little crazy with the clothes sometimes.
And the best part about it? It’s free! Head over here to download the full e-book and enjoy.
