For the past six months, Kanye West has been working on a video game about his mother going to heaven.
He dropped this little tidbit at the conclusion of an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, as he was talking about the inspiration behind his track “Only One”.
“Right now I’m working on a video game for ‘Only One’, and the idea is it’s my mother going through the gates of heaven, and you gotta bring her to the highest gates of heaven by holding her to the light,” said West.
“We’ve been workin’ on it for like six months.”
The video game talk starts at about 56 minutes. The whole interview is interesting, however, but you can skip to that if you’re in a hurry.
No word on when the game will be completed. From the sound of it, it’ll be quite a bit different, at least in terms of overall tone, than the video games he used to try to design in middle school.
