Snoop Dogg has launched a new mobile video game (available on iOS and Android) entitled 'Snoop Dogg's Rap Empire' via his Digital Dogg gaming and animation company. In the game, users take on the role of an aspiring up-and-coming rapper whose music is heard by Snoop, leading them on a journey to build a rap empire under the "Doggfather's" wing. During game-play, users are tasked with a variety of missions, including exploring cities, building a management team, signing to a label, recording tracks, building a studio, and more. You can watch a video about the game and learn more details below.
