Jay-Z launches Facebook game based on his own life

Empire lets you "LIVE THE DREAM".

Hip hop mogul Jay-Z has just launched a Facebook game based on his own life.

As reported by Mashable, Empire lets you "go from hustler, to entrepreneur, to business mogul" with a few clicks of your mouse button.

You'll start by earning points for visiting your poor old mum, signing up for a rap battle, making a mix tape or getting a job to fund your hip hop lifestyle.

Once you've earned enough points you can leave the ghetto and head for the "hotspots of the rich and famous" in downtown Manhattan.

"Make the right choices and the World belongs to you. LIVE THE DREAM," the game announces early on.

No word on how many points you need to secure a date with Beyoncé.
