During a livestream at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West launched his new album, The Life of Pablo. But along with that, and a new line of apparel, it transpired that the rapper has also been working on Only One, his very own video game. And there’s a trailer
As reported by Kotaku, it features his mother soaring gracefully to heaven, bestriding a winged horse against an ethereal soundtrack; quite the departure from the rapper’s profanity-laced proclivities. Only One is intended to commemorate Kanye’s late mother, Donda West. Despite thanking the audience, West made it clear that he hadn’t been happy with the way the game had been treated till now (via. GameSpot):
“That’s not easy to do, man. “Y’all just be acting like this sh*t is regular, man….I’ll be like, ‘I want to make a game,’ and they’ll be like, ‘F**k you.”
Following these explanations, West played the trailer for the audience again.
Although not much is known about Only One‘s release, it is said to be coming soon, to platforms unknown.
