Kanye West Made a Video Game About His Mom Exploring Heaven

Kanye West: rapper, fashion mogul, and now… video game designer? Following the debut of his new album, The Life of Pabloat the launch of his Yeezy Season 3 fashion line at Madison Square Garden, ‘Ye revealed the trailer for the video game he’s making about his dead mother called Only One: The Game. “The concept is my mom traveling through the gates of heaven,” Kanye explained, before showing a game footage of a winged woman flying above the clouds.

He first mentioned this game a little more than a year ago during an appearance on The Breakfast Club in late February of 2015. Apparently, it was hard to make. During the MSG show today Kanye explained that he had been made fun of when he went to San Francisco with the idea. “I go out and meet with everybody in San Fran, and they’ll diss the f**k out of me,” he recalled. “And I’ll be like, ‘I wanna make a game,’ and they’ll be like, ‘f**k you.’ That was hard to do, bro!”

No word on when ‘Ye’s game is going to come out, or, frankly, what exactly is going on here.
