The Amazon description for the book reads:
The most in-depth look at West’s life and career to date, Mark Beaumont’s new book lifts the mask to expose the man behind the endless myths. Featuring quotes from all of the major players in West’s life, Kanye West: God and Monster traces his life from the suburbs of Chicago through art school and rap apprenticeships to recording in the coolest studios of New York and Hawaii with the biggest names in music, revolutionizing hip-hop at every step of the way. Beaumont documents every rumor and revelation, details the wildest extravagances and biggest ego blow-ups of this true rap original.
Die hard Yeezus followers may not find many new personal details in Beaumont’s work. The Denver Post‘s review reports God and Monster relies on past public statements, and West was not interviewed for the biography.
The Overlook Press release does include the writer analyzing Ye’s lyrics, and the book focuses on his music making process. Beaumont also suggests the “Jesus Walks” performer is a creative genius that has greatly influenced his era of entertainment.
