Is a Kanye West-Hideo Kojima Collaboration Coming?
Just a day after his Twitter beef with Drake, Kanye West is in New York City on the hunt for legendary game designer Hideo Kojima. Apparently, Kojima is also visiting New York City, and Kanye is asking Twitter for help determining his location.

As of now, no one knows why Kanye is looking for Kojima—maybe he wants to work on something with him, or maybe he just wants to meet him. Regardless, it’s not the first time Kojima has made it into pop culture news outside of video games. Back in September, Conan O’Brien paid a visit to Kojima Studios to visit Conan Town, which is named after the anime and manga Detective Conan.
