The revelation came in a new episode of the podcast Hello mind Full, in which the rapper joined Alo Yoga co-founder Danny Harris and host Alyson Wilson to “paint an audio picture of what’s on his mind.” Harris talked about a book he had read more than 100 times, which included philosophies on self-reliance that he and West agreed on.
“West]told me he hadn’t read the book,” the businessman said, “but I told him all the positives [detallados en él], they naturally include. And it’s amazing to, you know, to have that confidence, you know, to be such a young person and go out there and inspire and have this vision, and make it happen , it’s a wonderful thing.”
West responded to the sentiment by clarifying that he had not only given up reading the book Harris mentioned, but “really [no ha] read none He explained, “Reading is like eating Brussels sprouts, for me, and talking is like eating Giorgio Baldi’s corn ravioli.” (Giorgio Baldi is an upscale Italian restaurant and celebrity hangout in Santa Monica, California).
The rapper continued with a story about Mike Howe, the inventor of the Ripsaw fighting vehicle, saying, “When his mom texts him long paragraphs, he reads the first sentence and the last sentence. This guy and his brother invented the Ripsaw fighting vehicle.” , they put it on GI Joethey have government contracts, this guy is a complete engineer, he works with all the geniuses, and for practical technologies – not an opinion, you know, practice-and he only reads the first and last sentence.

West spoke on when he and Harris seemed to have transcended the need for traditional methods of conversation: “Danny loves the Donda Doves logo, and he looks at it and says, ‘That’s it. and space, 2,000 years oh now” a situation where… We had a moment before, when he asked me about the fabrics, and I didn’t even have to say a word, literally just to us. We communicate with the movement of the head, as if we were Jedi.
“That’s the moment that showed where we’re going… Our children and grandchildren are going to reach that level of language. speak proper English… Like, won’t you respect what I’m saying, even though you know what I’m saying, unless I’m speaking proper English? [una situación en la que] every time I talk, they stop me and I have to do a breathalyzer test, walking along a yellow line with my finger in my nose.
“I want to express myself. And I’ve seen kids who express themselves and they just want to cry, and someone tells them, ‘Use your words,’ but what if they want to cry? Because we were given that form. of speech.”
Earlier this week, West made a splash by opening his own private school — a Christian prep institution called Donda Academy — in Simi Valley, California. According to its website, the fee-paying school aims to “prepare students to become the next generation of leaders,” with programs that will, implicitly, allow them to “learn the basics, grow in their faith , and experience two enrichment classes.” .
Two families who registered their children to attend Donda Academy claimed they had to sign confidentiality agreements before being admitted. A consultant told Donda, however a Rolling Stone that each student’s parents only have to sign an “informal agreement”.
“Honestly, we don’t care if people know about the school,” said Tamar Andrews. “People who want to come to the school are looking for a good Christian school in that area and they know we are there.” However, he noted that the school is not yet accredited.
