He’s a motha****ing monster!
Love him or hate him, Yeezy is bringing back the dead in Josh Chaplinsky’s novel, Kanye West- Reanimator (2015).
Written in the Lovcraftian style many horror fans can appreciate, Kanye is our “Herbert West” character, bringing back to life the state of hip-hop. How you may ask? Well, as only one Yeezus can do, with fresh beats and a sick flow. This all comes along with mishaps and drama involving Biggie and Tupac…and of course Kim.
Josh Chaplinksy obviously had an excellent time writing this, and I had an excellent time reading it. My favorite part had to be Yay and Sir Paul McCartney slicing and dicing Jay-Z in the studio, as slowly… we realize…he’s not all the way dead.
I know that not everyone is a Kanye fan, but you really do have to appreciate the fun take on the H.P. Lovecraft original story. It is written with the dramatic Lovecraft Prose, as well as with a Chi-Town flair that will leave you entertained. I finished the book in one sitting, and it’s one I will always recommend for the bookworm who has “read-everything”.
Now, I need this book cover as a poster…come on how cool is it?
