Kanye West Working On Video Game About His Mother’s Death — Drops Bombshell At ‘Life Of Pablo’ Livestream

Kanye West is about to add another job title to his long resume: video game producer. The Verge reports that at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show and album release party, Kim Kardashian’s husband revealed that he had been developing a video game called Only One that centered around his mother, “traveling through the gates of heaven.”

Kanye just showed a snippet of the imagery that will be included in the video game. It shows a figure, presumably his mother, riding through the clouds atop a white-winged horse. Kanye did not give a lot of details about the game on the night but he did say that he went through a lot of rejection before he could get it made

If the name of the game sounds familiar, it’s also the name of the song that Kanye release two years ago dedicated to his mother, Donda West. The music video for the song featured Kanye’s oldest child, North West.

Kanye West streamed his Yeezy Season 3 fashion collection on Tidal and according to The Verge, 20 million people tuned into the livestream of the show which was held at Madison Square Garden. Many viewers complained that they experienced trouble viewing the show. However, a Tidal press release blamed the choppy video on AMV and Akamai, the two companies responsible for the technical aspects of the livestream.

The album release party comes after numerous Twitter tirades from the rapper over the last couple of weeks. In his most recent bizarre twitter rant, he declared that Bill Cosby was innocent, presumably of the multiple counts of rape that he’s been accused of. As The Independent reported at the time, Kanye did not add any context to the tweet and he tweeted it soon after he apologized to Michael Jordan for mentioning his name in diss track. According to The Independent, West later clarified that his true beef was really with Mark Parker.

Kanye’s last big Twitter war was between Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose. This was back when Kanye had declared that the name of his new album was Waves. Wiz Khalifa tweeted that he was against the name because he thought that Kanye was appropriating the Wavy culture that was started by Max B, a rapper who is currently in prison. Kanye took offense to the claim and went off on Twitter. He claimed that Wiz Khalifa stole his entire style from Kid Cudi which meant that he (Kanye West) created Khalifa. But things took a left turn when Kanye claimed that he “made” Wiz Khalifa’s son with Amber Rose, Sebastian. Amber Rose is Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend and that high-profile relationship launched her into the spotlight.

Amber Rose did not appreciate Kanye’s comment and fired off a nuclear diss at the Chicago rapper.

“Aww, @kanyewest, are you mad that I’m not around to play in ur a**hole anymore?” the former stripper tweeted.

Kanye never responded to Amber directly but as Vox reports, he soon deleted his tweets. He made a general statement about never allowing any of his ex-girlfriends near that particular area of his body. Soon after, Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, posted a photo of herself and Amber Rose with the caption “Tea anyone?.” The post was explosive mainly because Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian were considered mortal enemies because Rose once claimed that Kim tried to make a move on Kanye while he and Amber were still in a relationship

Although most of Kanye’s recent Twitter storms have been truly bizarre, many have called them an elaborate viral marketing campaign for his new album, The Life of Pablo.
