posted by Rosario Edwards June 13, 2016

Kanye, who has recently been vocal about his love for video games has apparently been working on one for the last year. According to the trailer it seems to be focused around an adaption of the song “Only One” and a woman’s ascension to the pearly gates of heaven.

Guests at the recent Life Of Pablo Event as well as this year’s E3 festival were treated to images and a preview video of the game.

Hopefully the game play is as majestic as this trailer.

posted by Oscar June 13, 2013

Yeezy has posted a 31 second teaser for his highly-anticipated upcoming album, Yeezus. The clip shows Mr. West laying down some lines for his track “I Am A God” before cracking up and revealing master producer (and e.p. on Yeezus) in the background. Rubin pokes fun at Kanye’s line about stacking millions by saying that it makes him “relatable” to people. See it above.
