West’s mom is seen ascending to heaven in “Only One.”
“The idea of the game is my mom traveling through the gates of heaven.”
That’s how Kanye West described the video game he helped create that centers on the death of his mother, Donda West.
Kanye West and his mother Donda in 2006, one year before she died of complications from a botched cosmetic surgery.
A trailer for the game — called Only One — was played at West’s listening party/fashion show/self-congratulation session at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.
Details of the game are unclear, but the action appears to involve helping Donda get into heaven. She is seen flying towards a large opening in the sky, dressed in heavenly attire and alternatively riding a winged horse or donning angelic flight gear herself.
West sported a T-shirt with his mom on it on Thursday night.
Donda West died in 2007 after complications from cosmetic surgery. The 58-year-old West had undergone a breast reduction and tummy tuck, but likely suffered uncontrolled bleeding after going home to recover from the radical operation.
One of Kanye West’s many creative companies is named for her. And at an after-party Thursday night, West wore a T-shirt featuring his mother’s image on the front, and his late stepfather-in-law Robert Kardashian on the back.
