Today Activision revealed Kanye West as the musical accompaniment to the gun fire and rage quiting found at the first Call of Duty XP event in L.A. You know the event set up by Activision to celebrate all things Call of Duty. In his first public performance since the release of his fifth #1 album, Kanye West will take to the stage to close the event, capping an impressive roster of firsts for casual and hardcore Call of Duty fans alike.
“We’re pulling out all the stops,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “We promised our attendees and fans around the world a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the first Call of Duty XP, so we’re thrilled to have Kanye on board.Everything about XP will be as epic as the games themselves. Whether you’re competing for one of the open slots in the $1 million tournament, playing Modern Warfare 3 for the first time, dodging paintballs in a spectacular life-size recreation of Modern Warfare 2’s Scrapyard level or just mingling with developers and fellow gamers, Call of Duty XP is a celebration of one of the greatest games in the world. So what better way to top it off with one of the greatest artists in the world?”
Here’s one of the songs Kanye will no doubt be performing at the event, probably minus Jay-Z, but you never know.
