Kanye West's song about his mother's spirit is about to get a bit more interactive. West told The Breakfast Club that he plans to turn "Only One" into a video game about his mother's death.

"So right now I'm working on a video game for 'Only One,'" he said. "The idea is, 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. We've been working on it for like six months."
