Kanye West has shared excerpts from his upcoming philosophy book on Twitter - and they're typically out of this world.

The 40-year-old rapper recently reactivated his account on the micro-blogging website almost a year after taking it down, and he has now used the platform to post a series of deep and motivational tweets taken from the philosophy book he claimed to be writing in an interview published last week.

The Heartless hitmaker then revealed the content of his tweets would be featured in his book, which he said he will work on when he "feels it".

He continued: "oh by the way this is my book that I'm writing in real time. No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive."

West shared several other inspirational tweets moments after confirming his plan to release a philosophy book, in which he urged his fans to live "in the moment".
