Kanye West’s Thank You and You’re Welcome

Thank You And You're WelcomeThank You and You’re Welcome by Kanye West
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Just the kind of book you’d expect from an author who “doesn’t read.” On the plus side, it is brief and direct especially the sections where Kanye speaks on his own arrogance and how he never censors himself. (Prophet!) On the down side, his mantras can be contradictory, one paging refuting the other but that’s Kanye for ya.

Gotta say, I am having way too much fun pulling this book out at parties and having people pick a random Kanyeism and see how they can apply it to their lives. Hence, the one star.

(Props, kudos and shoutouts to Sunny Vergara who lent me his signed copy of Kanye’s book so I could finally read this seminal text. You didn’t think I paid money for this, didja?)

I’ll leave the final word to a friend who I showed the book: “Is this a joke? C’mon, dude wears $2000 polo shirts with a platinum watch and that ridiculous fade while sayin’ ‘I’m real. I’m real!’ Please.”

  1. You know what’s sad? There’s a “with” tag on the book. Which sounds like code for “This is the person who actually wrote the book.” Notice it says “Kanye West Presents” instead of “by Kanye West.

    And that’s where my critique of Kanye West begins and ENDS. I think My Kill Adore Him is in the mail…

    1. Dude, if you were to read this (I’m sure you can find it at any–Insert Name of National Bookstore Chain–and read it for free in about 15 minutes) there would be no doubt that these are the words of one Kanye Omari West.

      But enough about that, glad to hear about the Pompa review. Can’t wait to read your thoughts on the book.
