Kanye West has crossed over into almost every facet of popular culture at this point in his career. Music, television, film, fashion, and even Bitcoin have been blessed by the presence of Yeezus. Now the world of video games can count itself among the realms in the Chicago MC’s kingdom.
Yeezy revealed during his talk with Power 105.1 Breakfast Club that he’s working on a video game inspired by the song he dedicated to his daughter, “Only One.” He revealed that “The idea is that it’s my mother going through the gates of heaven and you have to bring her to the highest gates of heaven by holding her to the light. We’ve been working on it for like six months.” Not sure why his mother is the focus when the song was dedicated to his daughter North West, but the fact that Kanye may be unleashing a game on the world that’s similar to flower or Journey is a big deal in and of itself. There’s also no word as to what platform(s) it’ll be released on, but we know for sure that it will be a thing. Really.
