“Empire State of Mind,” the title of Jay-Z’s new Facebook game takes players down to roads Jay took to make it to the top. From Marcy Projects to one of hip hop’s biggest icons, each level explores a gradual progression to the top as portrayed through Sean Carter’s life. The game is currently in it’s BETA stage, however, Facebook users can sign up for the game and will be notified in the future of the official release. Apparently Jay-Z isn’t the only hip hop mogul going after that social media money. 50 cent is also set to launch Black Jack on Facebook as well. This may be the new trend in hip hop, check out the official press release of the game below.
“Empire takes you on a journey from the streets of Marcy Housing in Brooklyn to the hotspots of the rich and famous: from hustler, to entrepreneur, to business mogul. But, don’t forget friends and family, or your karma will suffer. Make the right choices and you can have it all: cash, bling, fame, street cred, and good karma”
