Kanye West is really proud of his new video game

Last year, Kanye told the world he was working on a video game. Over the weekend, the world was treated to a trailer for that video game.

Kanye was livestreaming a big performance to show off both his new album, The Life of Pablo, and his newest clothing line. Unexpectedly, he also showed off his game during this performance, and you can watch the trailer for that below. It's called Only One, just like the song.

"I worked on a video game and I wanted to show y'all," Kanye said. "The idea of the game is, my mum travelling 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 s--- 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 will diss the f--- out of me. And I'll be like, 'I wanna make a game,' and they will be like, 'F--- YOU.' That was hard to do, bro!"

I want to know what game developers (?) dissed Kanye for wanting to make a video game. Then again, this was the man who thought Wiz Khalifa was dissing Kim Kardashian on Twitter, when actually Wiz was just tweeting about smoking weed — so who knows.
