Kanye will dabble with philosophy in an upcoming book.

(AllHipHop News) Rap star Kanye West will add author to his resume with an upcoming book.

The Chicago rap star is planning to release a philosophical work titled "Break the Simulation."

Kanye did an interview with Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt for Pret-a-Reporter.

During the sit-down, Kanye revealed his philosophical book will focus on human being's fascination with photographs.

“I've got this philosophy — or let's say it's just a concept because sometimes philosophy sounds too heavy-handed. 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," Kanye said.

"It can be used to document, but a lot of times it overtakes [people]. People dwell too much in the memories," the rapper added.

The pair discussed a number of things during the extensive interview including art, architecture and how Kanye West' is strikingly similar to the late Professor Stephen Hawking.

"I don't wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water," Kanye said.
