Kanye West Gives Sneak Preview of New Book
Kanye West posted three pages from his upcoming book, 'Thank You and You're Welcome' -- an "entertaining volume of "Kanye-isms" -- which features gems like 'Be Leery of the Free Gift Bag' and the 'Missing Banister Theory,' on his kanyeuniversecity.com blog on Monday.
On the 'Get Used to Getting Used' page, West cleverly explains why being "used" isn't such a bad thing. "To most people, the saying 'to use someone' carries a negative connotation. But I don't see it that way. To 'mis,' 'over' or 'ab'-use someone is negative. To use is necessary. And if you can't be used, you're useless," the rapper explains.
'Thank You and You're Welcome', co-written with J. Sakiya Sandifer, is available for pre-oder on West's official Web site for $10.
