Hip-Hop mega star Jay-Z has released a Facebook game entitled ‘Empire’ in which you create you’re own virtual character and make you’re way up the social/ commercial ladder, from 'hustler' to 'Business mogul'. In-game activities include Rap Battles, making you’re own mix take and even holding down jobs to earn points and street cred’, all in the aim to reach the top.

There are plenty of these sort of games on the internet but to my knowledge, this is the first that seems to be based on a rapper’s life since the in game exploits do seem to resemble Jay-Z’s own rise to stardom.
