With the help of J Sakiya Sandifer, Kanye West has written a book titled, “Thank You And You're Welcome.”

The collection of Kanye-isms is rumored to attempt to offset the myriad of misquotes that Kanye has. The format of this book is interesting in that it has blank pages, and some pages with only a few words written on them.

Excerpts include stark but realistic nuggets like, “Get used to being used.”

Implications - Since he stepped onto the music scene, Kanye West's influence on both the entertainment world and his fans has landed him cultural icon status. Book releases such as this one are an opportunity for the star to capitalize on this widespread popularity and further his influence on the world.
