 It looks like Compton Rapper, The Game, is showing the real meaning behind his name. Last night (May 23rd), Mr. Los Angeles himself announced that he is releasing a new mobile video game named Block Wars.



The Game posted a trailer of the game on to his Instagram that seemed to give a vivid first look into his old neighborhood. There are real-life features in the video game such as explosions, drug houses being raided, shoot outs but the best part of it all is… The rapper himself plays the role of a pistol-wielding protagonist.



He goes on to caption the short clip of the new video game:

“Proud to announce I am the new @Atari ambassador & we have BIG THINGS coming for my fans & #Atari fans across the world in 2016 !!!! Our 1st project is our mobile game & app #BLOCKWARS,” he wrote. “Couldn’t wait to give you guys this teaser !!!! Release date coming soon…”



The latest trend for rappers right now is releasing some sort of mobile app and/or video game. Just back in March, Jersey native rapper Fetty Wap released a mobile car racing video game, and MMG artist Wale announced one he’s been working on. We also can’t forget how Kanye West previewed a video game centered around his mother traveling through the gates of heaven, earlier this year in Madison Square Garden at his fashion show.
