Why is Kanye West Tweeting GTA Mods for Concept Cars?
Kanye West tweets out a screenshot of a Grand Theft Auto Mod -- sparking even more questions of gaming influences in Kanye's thought process
In today’s gaming-crossover news, Kanye West tweeted a screenshot of a concept car design from a Grand Theft Auto mod. This tweet comes from his recent string that seems to mimic an idea board more than anything. The mod in the screenshot is supposed to be an Audi RSQ concept that looks to almost hover. There is no caption for the screenshot, only the search query “concept car design”.
What could this all mean? CLEARLY, it’s only a matter of time before Kanye hits up the GTA modding community to help him in building the cars we really need. With the genius of Ye and GTA modders, Yeezus only knows what’s possible.
Forget Teslas running on electricity, we’re getting “Kanye West-las” that run on ultralight beams.
But to make a somewhat serious point, this marks another moment into how Kanye West seems to have his eye on video games. Though there hasn’t been a constant flow of them, there have been a few video game “stick-out” moments people scratch their head over.
You can recall back in 2016 when Kanye actually went to E3 and showed off a mobile game about his mother going to heaven. Though the game never actually came out, at the time it made the entire gaming community turn their collective heads for a (brief) moment.
Probably something even more noteworthy, Kanye West actually follows CD Projekt Red’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 on Twitter. Now, I would mark Kanye for being a gamer (to an extent), but action-RPGs? Has Kanye been patiently waiting all this time for the game just like the rest of us? All of this just makes me curious to hear Kanye’s top 10 games list even more now.
Either way, I definitely want to listen to Stronger while I’m cruising in my Audi RSQ hovercar in Cyberpunk 2077. The question that remains is which will release first: Cyberpunk 2077 or Ye’s new album ‘Yandhi’?
