Master P Launches Video Game – Get Money
The rap star turned businessman plans to take the company, Get Money Video Game, public via an (Initial Public Offering) IPO in 2018.
A press release by the rap mogul on Wednesday said the game is the new way to sell music.
Master P in his statement said:
“Why are we not benefitting from this multi-billion dollar industry that has been created off of our lifestyle?
“We have to expand our mind to technology. It is the new way to sell music.”
Get Money is set in New Orleans. Gamers will have the option to play as 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 it is in the real world.
In 2013 Forbes estimated Master P’s net worth at nearly $350 million.
This placed him as the third richest figure in hip-hop at the time.
