Kanye West designed X-rated Mario-like video game

Grammy Award-winning musician Kanye West revealed that when he was twelve-years old he designed a "very sexual" video game on his computer "like Mario Brothers."

In an interview with Details Magazine titled "The Unraveling of Kanye West," Grammy Award-winning musician Kanye West revealed that when he was twelve-years old he designed a "very sexual" video game on his computer "like Mario Brothers." Only instead of playing as a moustachioed plumber, you ran around as a "giant penis" with "little feet and eyes" fighting "ghost vaginas."

In addition to comparing his game to the Super Mario Bros. series, Kanye West also noted that even though he was only in the seventh grade at the time he worked on his game, its quality was equivalent to what 30-year-old programmers would make.

The discussion about West's x-rated game arose when the artist talked about the first beat he'd ever come up with, which turned out to be for this game: "My game was very sexual. The main character was, like, a giant penis. It was like Mario Brothers, but the ghosts were, like, vaginas. Mind you, I'm 12 years old, and this is stuff 30-year-olds are programming. You'd have to draw in and program every little step - it literally took me all night to do a step, 'cause the penis, y'know, had little feet and eyes."
