Thrilling Thursday. It’s a thrill ride to get the day started, beginning with Kanye West being ripped off and copied? On a more serious note, the late Michael Jackson‘s daughter allegedly tried to kill herself and fortunately she was unsuccessful. Dipset’s always been known for being one of the toughest hip-hop groups out but are they any match for what’s cooking in Pittsburgh? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Kanye Quest
Is Kanye West the star of a new video game? That appears to be the case, at least according to a new trailer that’s going around promoting “Kanye Quest.” You would initially think it is a funny promotion for his new album but the more you watch it, things don’t seem to make much sense. XXL Mag has the clip:
Kanye West has become the subject of a new video game—a JRPG, to be exact. Kotaku reports that Mr. West has become the star of a fan-made Japanese role playing game Kanye Quest 3030. The game—whose title is also derived from Del The Funkee Homosapien and Dan The Automator’s Deltron 3030 project—finds the G.O.O.D. Music impresario duking it out with the clone of 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and even Lil B. This isn’t the first fan-made Yeezy video game floating around the Internet. Last year, a fan produced a Flash game called Kanye Zone, in which the player attempts to block Kanye from, “getting into his zone.” (XXL Mag)
Considering today’s technology, is there anyone who would actually purchase this game? Better yet, could there be any legal backlash the creators/makers could get if Kanye was unaware of this even existing? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
