Kanye West is known as one of the biggest names in music today. He has also dabbled in stuff outside his profitable music career, including conquering the fashion world. West recently revealed that he will be adding to his checklist for world domination: he will be making a video game. In a guest appearance at Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club radio show, West talked at length about the new material he’s working on as well as his collaboration with Adidas. Towards the end of the interview, West revealed some details about the video game inspired by his mother.
“Right now I'm working on a video game for ‘Only One’, and 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,” West said. “We've been working on it for like six months.” “Only One” is the name of the single he made with Paul McCartney, and is a tribute to West’s mom who passed away due to complications attributed to a plastic surgery operation.
West has yet to reveal more details about the game. It’s currently unknown if he’s developing it with a studio or when it will be released. It’s also unknown which platform the game is being released for. If it becomes a mobile game he will be facing off against his wife, Kim Kardashian, whose Kim Kardashian: Hollywood mobile game proved to be a massive success. Kim Kardashian: Hollywood was estimated to have generated as much as $200 million last year through in-app purchases.
In the same interview, West also talked about his plans of making a documentary about the controversial minister Louis Farrakhan. “Right now, I'm working on a documentary with him, about him and about his music. He's a classically trained violinist, and he's also one of the most humane people,” West said.
