    Cool Kanye West new book: Through The Wire (Preview)


    Kanye has teamed up with famed illustrator Bill Plympton to create Through The Wire, a graphic memoir that will include the lyrics to 12 of Yeezy’s most important songs with accompanying illustrations.Hit the jump for more details and a couple of page previews from the book.

    Book description via Amazon:
    This is a rare partnership between two geniuses at the top of their crafts — Kanye West, who was named “the smartest man in hip-hop” by Time magazine, and Bill Plympton, an Academy Award-nominated animator, cartoonist, and illustrator.
    Through the Wire is a graphic memoir that illustrates the lyrics of twelve Kanye West songs to tell his story, from his decision to drop out of college to pursue his dreams in music, through his days spent folding chinos at the Gap while struggling at night to make a name as a producer, through the pivotal car accident that eventually set him on the course to stardom and the epiphany of realizing exactly who he had become:
    “…They say people in your life are like seasons
    And anything that happens is for a reason…”
    Plympton illustrates each of the songs in detail, his vision of Kanye’s world. The songs are annotated with explanations of the references in the songs, biographical components that illuminate the lyrics, and their meaning on a deeply personal level.
    The result is a one-of-a-kind book that initially grabs you and stays with you forever.

    Through The Wire will be available November 10th.

    According to the description at Amazon, the book features illustrations by Bill Plympton and details the ups and down of the rapper's career including "his decision to drop out of college to pursue his dreams in music, through his days spent folding chinos at the Gap while struggling at night to make a name as a producer, through the pivotal car accident." Additionally, lyrics will accompany each song illustration.
