Last year, Kanye told the world he was working on a video game. Yesterday, the world was treated to a trailer for that video game.
Last night, Kanye livestreamed a big performance showing off both his new album, The Life of Pablo, along with his newest clothing line. Unexpectedly, he also showed off his game during this performance, and you can watch the trailer for that below. It’s called Only One, just like the song.
“I worked on a video game and I wanted to show y’all,” Kanye said. “The idea of the game is, my mom traveling through the gates of heaven.”
Honestly, it looks pretty sweet. And Kanye is proud of it, too! After he showed off the footage, he didn’t seem happy with how people received the trailer of a game meant to commemorate his late mother, Donda West.
“That’s not easy to do, man!” Kanye said, presumably about making the game in the first place. “Y’all just be acting like that shit is regular.”
That’s when Kanye played the trailer for the audience again. But not without giving us a small tale about the game’s development.
“No, you don’t understand. I go out and meet with everybody in San Fran, and they’ll diss the fuck out of me. And I’ll be like, ‘I wanna make a game,’ and they’ll be like, ‘FUCK YOU.’ That was hard to do, bro!”
I want to know what game developers (?) dissed Kanye for wanting to make a video game. Then again, this was the man who thought Wiz Khalifa was dissing Kim Kardashian on Twitter, when actually Wiz was just tweeting about smoking weed—so who knows.
Pro-tip, by the way: if you were using Tidal last night, it’s wasn’t just you. The streaming for Kanye’s album was pretty terrible. Guess he should have used Twitch!
