In the video game, Donda is seen ascending into heaven while riding on a pegasus to the tune of West’s song “Only One.” The video game is titled “Only One: The Game.”
“I worked on a video game, and I wanted to show y’all,” the rapper, 38, told the crowd at Madison Square Garden while debuting his latest collection and new album, The Life of Pablo. “The idea of the game is, my mom traveling through the gates of heaven.”
Donda died in November 2007 at the age of 58 after suffering complications from plastic surgery.
In the game’s teaser video, Donda is dressed in all white, clutching onto a Pegasus who flies through a serene-looking pink and blue sky. The Pegasus then drops Donda off on a cloud and rides away in the light.
“That’s not easy to do, man!” West said after debuting the clip, seemingly referring to his surprise new effort. “Y’all just be acting like that s–t is regular. … You don’t understand. I go out and meet with everybody in San Fran, and they dis the f–k out of me. … That was hard to do, bro. This s–t was hard to do, man.”
A release date was not announced.
