After conquering the music world and the fashion world, rapper Kanye West is taking on his next big challenge: video games.

West was on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club radio show recently discussing his next album and his collaboration with Adidas when he briefly mentioned that he's currently working on a video game based on one of his songs.

"Right now I'm working on a video game for Only One, and the idea is that it's my mother going through the gates of heaven and you have to bring her to the highest gates of heaven by holding her to the light," West said. "We've been working on it for like six months."

Only One, which you can hear in the video above directed by Spike Jonze, is dedicated to West's mother, who passed away in 2007.

West didn't say which platforms the game is for or who's developing it with him. If it comes to mobile, he's going to face some stiff competition from his wife Kim Kardashian, whose successful Kim Kardashian: Hollywood mobile game was estimated to generate as much as $200 million last year through in-app purchases.
