Possessing a self-love rivaling that of the man from Nantucket, prolific rapper and profane poet Kanye West continues to bless mankind with his astonishing insight and wisdom. In his new book, Thank you, and You’re Welcome, Mr. West charitably shares the very marrow of his intellect and genius. So penetrating are his observations, so deep run his life philosophies, that a second writer was brought in to aid in the production of the prodigious magnum opus … all 52 pages of it.

Numbers

10

Number of Fat Burger restaurants Kanye plans to open in the Chicago area under his company banner, KW Foods LLC. Talk about bitin’ someone’s (burger) style: Notorious B.I.G., Beastie Boys, and Ice Cube all rapped about this West Coast hamburger joint before Kanye got on board. Sounds like another hip-hop beef.

Quote

My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.

Kanye West

Everyone has a cross to bear, oh Lord, but must Kanye’s be so heavy?

Fact

The Kanye West Foundation was founded in Chicago, Illinois, in 2003. Since that time, Kanye has donated over $500,000 of his own money to support programs like Loop Dreams, an interactive music program designed to educate, motivate and encourage students to stay in school. Work hard, kids, then get a good job and buy some vintage Kanye West Louis Vuitton sneakers.  

The List

Ego Tripped

Buddy Ryan “You’ve got a winner in town.” Upon arriving in Arizona as the Cardinals football coach fired after going 12-20 in his first two years.
Kenneth Lay “Our liquidity is fine. As a matter of fact, it is better than fine.  it is strong.” Enron CEO prior to accounting scandal.
General George Custer “There are not enough Indians in the world to defeat the Seventh Cavalry.” Prior to being killed at Little Big Horn, with massive casualties to the Seventh Cavalry.
Matt Hasselbeck “We want the ball and we’re gonna score.” After winning coin toss, before promptly throwing an interception in the 2004 NFL playoffs
The Bottom Line

A whirling dervish of creative energy and entrepreneurial vigor, there isn’t much Kanye can’t do or won’t try. It’d be a lot easier to cheer for him if he’d share the pom-poms.
