Meek Mill features Nicki Minaj in new mobile game app

Rapper Meek Mill has included fiancee Nicki Minaj in his latest venture by making her a character in his new mobile game app.

On Monday (29Jun15), the hip-hop star launched a dirt bike-themed video game called Bike Life, which takes place in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is described as an "endless riding" game made to reflect Meek Mill's real-life love of street bikes.


An avatar of Minaj serves as one of Meek Mill's passengers on his bike, as he goes through the city and evades the police, riding through oil slicks and performing extreme bike stunts.


Rapper Omelly and Monster Energy bike rider Chino are also featured characters in the app.


The release of Bike Life coincides with the debut of his latest album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, which the hip-hop star says is meant to serve as a soundtrack for users as they play the game.


Meek Mill is the latest celebrity to launch a mobile game, following in the footsteps of reality TV star Kim Kardashian, whose Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app has earned her an estimated $20 million from sales since its release last year (14).
