KANYE WEST , JAY-Z TIDBITS

 

Rapper Kanye West is bringing his ego to the bookshelf. Following in the steps of his mother, Donda — who released her own book about the artist, "Raising Kanye," earlier this year — Kanye has put his thoughts to paper for "Thank You and You're Welcome," which he co-authored with J. Sakiya Sandifer.  The book is reportedly a collection of "Kanye-isms" — "the creative, humorous and insightful philosophies and anecdotes used in creating my path to success," he said in a post. "It captures the same wit, playful irony, and piercing insight found abundant in my lyrics." It can be preordered on EchoTunes.com.

 

If Def Jam honcho Jay-Z gets his wish, Jadakiss will be a part of the Roc very soon.  Jay-Z is currently in negotiations with Ruff Ryders to get Jadakiss on the Def Jam label.  "Well, I've been actually trying to get Jadakiss to come to Roc-A-Fella/ Ruff Ryders for a minute," he told reporters. "It's not done. It's in the final stages, though. I spoke to [co-CEO] Dee [Dean] and all of them about doing something really special with a Roc-A-Fella/ Ruff Ryders collaboration."

In other Hov news, Jay drops his American Gangster LP on November 6 and the next video from the album will be "Roc Boys." A movie for his album — not to be confused with the November 2 Denzel Washington movie that inspired the album — is also coming down the line.  "I'mma shoot a video but try to shoot it [so that] I can add scenes from it into the movie…It's gonna take a minute to get this movie together; writing it and getting the right people to do it."
