New Love & Hip Hop Video Game Dropped Sept 22

The “Love & Hip Hop” TV franchise from the big screen to your phone screen.

Show creator Mona Scott-Young announced she’s released “Love & Hip Hop: The Game,” a virtual reality app where users try to make it in the music industry.

“It’s all about the hustle,” Scott-Young said. “You rise through the game. The goal is to become a mogul.”

The TV boss showed off her new video game during a press preview Sept. 22 at the Viacom building in New York City, where Love & Hip Hop New York stars Papoose, his wife Remy Ma, Yandy Smith and Rich Dollaz were on hand to promote the newest extension of the LHHNY brand.

Scott-Young said the game allows fans to become part of the Love & Hip Hop world, a scene inhabited by aspiring singers, club promoters, music producers, models and rappers.

Users can interact with each other on the in game’s social media network, and can take each other out on dates. The free video game, which is available on Android and IOS, allows users to customize their character – even details like nail color and eyebrow shape – as well as body type, outfits, makeup and hairstyle.

“That’s a big part of the conversation, the style of it,” Scott-Young said. “This game is through the lens of fashion.”

And the show’s creator said most of the cast would turn up in the game one way or another.

“Papoose, Remy and Yandy were all represented in the game,” Scott-Young said. “And eventually of you level all the way up, you might get to meet me too.”

Dan Yang, the game’s creator, said “Love & Hip Hop: The Game” will fill a niche in the video game market.

“It allows us to build an engaging experience for Love & Hip Hop fans,” he said, “ones who may be underserved by the gaming industry.”
