What can you say about Yeezus that hasn't already been said? Whether he's dropping his raptastic craptastic on us, naming himself Evel Kanyevel and dicking about on a motorcycle or impregnating Kardashians, there's never a dull moment down Kanye way.
The man cannot and will not be stopped. Just recently, his rant against microtransactions showed his impeccable, unquestionable expertise on everything gaming-related. And now, there's this.
Yeezus has just had a live stream promoting his new album, The Life of Pablo. While he was ego-ing it up, he took the opportunity to hawk his shitty new clothing line as well. After that, because a double dose of Kanye West ain't not enough Kanye West for no man, he triple-dipped and promoted his new video game as well.
Remember Only One? The game in which you lead his beloved Ma West through the gates of heaven? It's still a thing, and Kanye's far too damn proud of it. Kotaku tells the story best:
‘"I worked on a video game and I wanted to show y'all," Kanye said. "The idea of the game is, my mom traveling through the gates of heaven."
Honestly, it looks pretty sweet. And Kanye is proud of it, too! After he showed off the footage, he didn't seem very happy with how much people cheered for the game.
"That's not easy to do, man!" Kanye said, presumably about making the game in the first place. "Y'all just be acting like that shit is regular."
That's when Kanye played the trailer for the audience again. But not without giving us a small tale about the game's development.
"No, you don't understand. I go out and meet with everybody in San Fran, and they'll diss the f**k out of me. And I'll be like, ‘I wanna make a game,' and they'll be like, ‘F**K YOU.' That was hard to do, bro!"'
I know what you're thinking. You completely understand the people of San Francisco's impulse to diss the f**k out of West, and to scream F**K YOU at him in the street. I'm right there with you. But the fact is, said trailer is the kind of oddity you just have to see. Feast your eyes:
