Entrepreneur and former rapper, Percy Robert Miller a.k.a Master P hs announced he’s releasing a video game called Get Money.
Get Money is modeled after Rockstar’s highly successful Grand Theft Auto, and is being dubbed as the first “African-American minority-owned technology game”. The game would be available for Playstation, Xbox, PC and mobile apps.
Master P partnered with a team of Korean developers in 2010 and has announced plans to take the company, Get Money Video Game, public in 2018.
“Why are we not benefiting from this multi-billion dollar industry that has been created off of our lifestyle?” Miller asks via press release. “We have to expand our mind to technology. It is the new way to sell music.”
Set in New Orleans, the game will give gamers the option to play as either villain, hustler, cop, boss, or entertainer. According to the press release, “If you make the right choices, you get the money. But if you make the wrong choices it’s death, jail or destruction just like in the real world.”
