Jay-Z Launches Facebook GamePosted by Liana Robertshaw
Rapper Jay-Z wants you to play a part in his rags-to-riches life.
He has recently launched a beta version of the Facebook game, “Empire“, where players get to follow his journey from hustler in Brooklyn’s Marcy Housing Projects to successful entrepreneur and music mogul.
In the game, you create your avatar and earn points to rise up the lifestyle ladder. “Make the right choices and the World belongs to you. LIVE THE DREAM,” reads a prompt early in the game. You can earn points for everything from visiting your mom to engaging in a rap battle.
