This holiday season Kanye received the gift ever—he’s the inspiration behind a new textbook on himself.

Julius Bailey, a professor at Wittenberg University’s Philosophy Department is busy finishing “The Cultural Impact of Kanye West,” an in-depth reading of the works and cultural impact of Kanye West.

According to its summary, the book analyzes the “the ability of popular art to offer societal critiques and challenge received ideas has been recognized throughout history. Through rap and hip hop, composers, singers, and entertainers have recently provided a voice questioning and challenging the sanctioned view of the times.” Looking at the moral and social implications of West’s words, images, and music in the broader context of Western civilization’s preconceived ideas, the contributors consider how West both challenges religious and moral norms and propagates them.

The book has a March 6, 2014 release date but you can pre-order it on Amazon now.

Vixens, will you be investing $80.00 for a more comprehensive look into Yeezus?
