Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West is making headlines again, but this time it’s got nothing to do with his extremely irritating, constantly on-going rants on every possible subject. No, this time Kanye’s got the media’s attention, because he’s developing a video game for… his own mother!
West’s mother, Donda, died at the age of 58 back in 2007. The rapper spoke about her death for the very first time at the end of 2008 and he stated that the experience of losing her had been like trying to walk after losing an arm and a leg. And how West has apparently decided to honor his late parent with a video game – a product his wife Kim Kardashian has been very successful in developing and selling.
The 38 year old rapper debuted a trailer for the video game about his mom, entitled Only One: The Game. The trailer doesn’t really show much apart from the main character riding Pegasus, the mythical flying white horse, through the skies in attempts to reach Heaven’s Gates. Kanye didn’t give out details about the video game – important details, such as who’s the developer, what platforms will support the game, or when it will be released. He also didn’t say what the gameplay will be about. Instead, West decided to go on another one of his infamous rants and this time he slammed all the people he tried convincing to develop the game. Of course, he didn’t name anybody, but he went on ranting about how nobody wanted to work with him on the video game and how everybody told him off. So, in other words, Kanye West went to great lengths in attempts to develop the game, but he didn’t actually say much about the game itself.
