Kanye West is headed for video game fame, whether he likes it or not.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new player Kanye Quest 3030 will feature a 2D version of West battling a series of legendary rappers – including Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur – in a futuristic sci-fi setting. 3030 also includes a number of hilarious references to West's career; notably, in a nod to the electro-heavy Yeezus track "I Am a God," the rapper fends off his enemies with croissants. The game's soundtrack features a dramatic piano rendition of West's 2010 single "Power."

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
