Music mogul and entrepreneur Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter continues to extend his brand in innovative ways. After conquering fashion (Rocawear), music (Roc-A-Fella Records), real estate (40/40 Club) and sports (New Jersey Nets), among other mediums, he is currently developing a Facebook game called Empire. Recently released in beta format on the social media platform, the game allows users to play out a rags-to-riches story as a character, whose life mirrors Carter’s own rise from the Marcy Housing Projects in Brooklyn, NY to a glamorous life of fame and fortune.

While Empire is still being finalized, Facebook users can get updates on the game’s developments via its Facebook page.  Can’t knock the hustle.

      Shaun, I look up to Jay Z as well. But just as I have, you have to realize Jay Z is a WINNING LOTTERY TICKET! 1 in 179 Million along with Oprah and Tyler Perry. And as I’ve found out, YOU CAN NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE UPON OBTAINING WHAT THEY NEVER DREAMED THEY WOULD OBTAIN, BUT SOMEHOW DID! Not saying you can’t be as successful, but IT’S GONNA TAKE HARD WORK, EMOTIONAL FORTITUDE, TALENT, SKILL AND LUCK! Good Luck to you.
