Nicki Minaj's mobile game is about the music, not just the Kardashian-style fame perks

Oscar Raymundo | Dec. 8, 2016
Hip-hop star Nicki Minaj makes her mobile game debut, a version of 'Kim Kardashian: Hollywood' but with a way better soundtrack.

You can also browse through other people’s songs and give them a thumbs-up. At first, I was afraid that listening to user-uploaded raps would be a cringe-worthy exercise, but even during my beta test the most-liked list had a few that were actually pretty good.

For players who have real-life hip-hop aspirations, Nicki Minaj will be listening to what’s uploaded on the Beatbook and pick her favorite raps every week. Right now the most-liked track on Beatbook is by Minaj, of course—her exclusive song for the game called “Ain’t Gone Do It.”

Nicki Minaj: The Empire also has a bunch of chatrooms, so you can get your “friends” to “like” your songs and climb up the music charts. However, I find these social features in mobile games to be rather forced, but I guess that’s just part of the fame game—you have to learn to be a little fake.
