Jay-Z & 50 Cent Both Launch Facebook Gaming Applications

50 Cent creates a virtual casino with "50 Cent's Blackjack" while Jay-Z aims to help you create your own "Empire" with his Facebook game.

As rappers, both Jay-Z and 50 Cent have battled it out on the charts but now the two Hip Hop moguls turned businessmen have found a new platform to compete with one another on and that is the Facebook gaming platform. 
For his Facebook game titled 50 Cent’s Blackjack, 50 Cent linked up with Game Show Network (GSN) digital to create a virtual casino where Facebook users can challenge their friends or play the games dealer.
"I am excited to partner with GSN Digital on this venture to create an unparalleled social gaming experience for my fans," 50 Cent explained to Hip-Hop Wired. "50 Cent's Blackjack is filled with fun twists and innovative features that is sure to provide hours of entertainment."
Unlike 50 Cent’s Blackjack, Jay-Z’s Empire will take more of a Sims-like approach where Facebook users can quite literally create their own empire as they work their way from “hustler, to entrepreneur, to business mogul.”
While 50 Cent’s Blackjack is up and running on Facebook, according to Complex Jay-Z’s Empire is currently in its beta testing stage.

    50 desperate for cash? thats when you know your a hater....lol

  • NYC

    I hope whomever shot him 9 times would finally finish the job!!!

    I hope 50 turns out like Master P and loses all his cash, fucking snake.

  • Gen

    50 Cent is so desperate for cash....lol Notice how he's doing all these deals but every year Forbes says he has less money...Every year people care less about him. Unlike Puffy and Jay who continue to get richer and more popular each year. This dude needs to understand that in order for people to be interested in his products, selling records is a necessity. Jay and Puff can sell things because they're popular performers...50 Cent is not...At least, not anymore. Instead of trying to sell people crap, hoping he gets lucky, he should invest some time into becoming a better rapper....Invest time into writing about things other then "chedda and berettas"....Get people interested in the music again, and he can get everything he once had, back. He's running around like it's still 05 or something....His name doesn't hold any weight to anyone outside of a small community of stans on the internet. lol

  • SpecialK

    • Anonymous

    • @Mac Dre

  • Fully Grown With Your Hormones Now

    Fuck these niggas wasting time on some bullshit for Facebook instead of making some good music.

    • Fully Grown With Your Hormones Now

      Fuck you too nigga. Fuck you and everybody else cause as soon as yall get rich yall forget about the real start making some fake bullshit on facebook

    • ETK

      the narrow-minded nigga here is you, fam "oh I'd still be makin music for my peoples" get outta here with that ish son. till you're in their shoes, you can't tell what you would and wouldn't do. 50 and Jay aren't even businessmen, they're businessES. and Jay's 12 #1 albums in. 14 Grammys. who's really wasting time

    • Fully Grown With Your Hormones Now

      No I wouldn't you would probally because you's a narrow minded bitch that sees nothing but money but I would still be making some good music my peoples relate to

    • yocuz

      you'd be doing the same if you were making millions

  • dentaldamboy

    Wayne and 50 need to do an album together to end Jay's career.

    • fuc dentalgay and gay capone

      is you guys dating or what!?

    • Alf Capone

      its all good man

    • dentaldamboy

      My bad Alf. I actually didn't pay attention to who wrote the comment. You're actually one of the few independant minded people on this site. You don't dick ride any rapper. Game is actually my fav rapper. I like both Wayne and 50, but neither is my fav. I like some of Jay's music but I don't like him as a person.

    • Alf Capone

      jay is cool, im not a huge fan or anything like that. havent really liked anything hes made since the black album. i know simple niggas like u gotta automatically get all pissy and upset cuz i dont like ur favorite rapper and accuse me of being a huge fan of some other rapper cuz im honest. so is it waynes or 50s dick ur on?

    • dentaldamboy

      And Jay-Z fans like you want to fuck men.

    • Alf Capone

      i think that might end up costing 50 his career. whats left of it. 50s fans dont wanna hear him do a song with lil wayne. they wanna see him eat lil wayne alive. not that im a fan. lil wayne fans just wanna dress like hipsters, get a few ironic t-shirts and there mo hawk touched up, and sit back and listen to lil wayne mumble and throw meaningless punchlines in songs that are about nothing in particular

    50 done it first 50 and jay are the best hip hop moguls fuck that puff daddy guy
