Video: Kanye Talks “Kanye-isms” Book

via MTV News

Last year, he teamed with marketer/philosopher J. Sakiya Sandifer to write a book of “Kanye-isms” called “Thank You and You’re Welcome.” After selling it on his Web site, the multi-Grammy winner told MTV News the book hits stores July 7.

“He inspired the format of the book, because he wrote a book called ‘Think, Think, Think and Think Again,’ ” West said Friday morning (May 22) about Sandifer. “[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.”

One of Kanye’s favorite philosophies in the book is “Get used to getting used.” “To use someone is necessary. What’s negative is to misuse, overuse or abuse somebody,” West said. “To use is necessary. If you can’t get used, then you’re useless.” “That really came from my entrepreneurial journey,” Sandifer said. “I would complain when my phone wasn’t ringing. ‘No, I want to be used.’ Being the resident philosopher, I put it in that context.”

West and Sandifer call working together a “great collaboration.” They’ve also collaborated on some of ‘Ye’s acceptance speeches and a line from “The Good Life”: “‘Having money’s not everything; not having it is,’ ” Sandifer repeated of the line he came up with. “That’s where the real problem is — when you don’t have it.”

While West and Sandifer might make another book, it probably won’t be a sequel to “Thank You.” “It’s just gonna be another collection of our ideas and theories,” Sandifer said. “It’s not gonna be like ‘Thank You and You’re Welcome Volume Two.’ I think that would be limiting.”

    ======================================
    when the Magic lost that game where Big Baby hit the game winning shot i bet you SVG-Dwight Howard and the rest of the Magic thought “iight that bum ass nigga wont ever do that agian lucky” now that Lebron shot is 100X more lucky and they were 1 sec away from series over statistically 90% of the teams that go up 2-0 win the series…the Magic are crushed,they gonna try to play it off but they wont be able to,CLE is going to have momentum into game 3

    I grew up and witnessed in the garden EVERY knicks bulls playoff game of the 90’s. EVERY GAME I WAS THERE (Dad’s co had season tix)

    I don’t think Jordan could have hit that awkward ass fading away five feet out from 3 point line shot.

    I believe time will reveal Lebron to be the goat.

    I will hit my knees that he comes to the basketball Mecca (NY) and brings back the spirit of Clyde Earl the Pearl and Dollar Bill
    =========================================
    here we go niggas being “Prisoners of the Moment” say Jordan could have never hit any type of game winning shot is pure Blasphemey…”Jordan never could have hit that shot” what shot Jordan didnt hit that would make you say some BS like that huh? i bet you if Jordan would have made a 70 foot full-court heeve blind-folded niggas would swear Kobe/Lebron would have made it…

    These have to be some of the most aweful comments ever, find yourself a good forum to spam or something.

    On topic: This book is great.

    “Get used to getting used.” The negative connotations of that kanye-ism epitomize the power struggle that people are experiencing constantly. Social capital is “using people as ‘human’ resources” and being able to rely on those within your community – neighborhood, family, friends, networks (online or otherwise) – as means of support, help, and materials. Although the quest for financial gain and the accumulation of possessions exists in every culture, I think Americans are particularly susceptible to this materialistic culture because of our reliance and addiction to mass media. I am by no means an anti-television activist or protesting against our constitutional right to publish, present, and inform others about everything, BUT Americans are increasingly being dumbed down (good looks Lupe) to filtering these messages.
    Musically and artistically speaking, The Rich White Men who reside at the top of the hierarchical music scene are the ones who determine who gets pushed out and promoted to the mainstream music level, and who gets to be heard on all channels by the masses. Yet, these same groups of Rich White Men are the ones who deride rap music and hip-hop and urban culture, saying that that music and those video games and these people and this generation are impeding progress and change and betterment of society.
    But we still lap it up. Corporate America is constantly sticking its hands into the cookie jar, taking everything for itself. Fight back! Don’t let good music and insightful knowledge be taken from you. I love hip-hop but I hate constantly defending it to ignorant people. Yea you hate those songs that marginalize black people and demoralize women and epitomize porn and legitimize violence and crime, but you are bumpin’ Lil Wayne in your Civic. WHy does Common have to be “the conscious rapper?” Why does Kanye have to apologize for how big his head is (no, not that head)? Yea he’s wack about some stuff but he has true talent. Why are new artists like Tanya Morgan or Nero or U-N-I or Blu unknown? Why are older legends like the Roots or Dead Prez or Pete Rock or Q-Tip written off as been-there-done-that, they-don’t-make-em-like-that-anymore talents?
    This comment started off as a tribute to Kanye’s move to offer potentially life-changing insight to readers of his book. I know it kinda went off-stream a lot but that’s hopefully what Yeezy wanted to do: challenge people to challenge society and our means of communication and interaction. So hopefully this comment will do the same.
