Kanye West is the star of a new unofficial video game, 'Kanye Quest 3030' in which a computer version of the rapper makes his way through a dystopian year 3030, earning points by battling other rappers and fighting off enemies with croissants. Watch a trailer for it below.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, game-maker Phenix describes it as "a hip-hop-themed science-fiction 2D roleplaying game starring Kanye West." Clones of Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Lil B, Tupac Shakur, Notorious BIG, MF Doom and the RZA also appear.

Last week (July 22), Kanye West described the second verse of 'Yeezus' track 'New Slaves' as the "best rap verse of all time". The track references 'Strange Fruit' - a song about racist lynchings in 1930s America. Nina Simone's version is sampled on West's 'Blood on the Leaves' – featured on his latest album 'Yeezus', which was released on June 18. "I open the debate…The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time….meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD," he wrote on Twitter.

Also last week, West revealed the finished version of the interactive video for 'Black Skinhead'. An unfinished version of the promo was posted online earlier this month, much to West's dismay. However, the finished version of the promo, which is directed Nick Knight, can be seen on Kanye West's website.
