On 420 — the marijuana holiday — Wiz Khalifa is releasing his first-ever mobile game. And oh, it has a lot to do with weed. The multi-platinum selling rapper has announced the release of “Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm.” Tying it up with this year’s 420 celebration, Wiz is all set for the game’s release on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Wiz Khalifa’s Weed-Themed Mobile Game
In the past, Wiz has never kept his love for marijuana a secret. He named his mixtape “Kush & Orange Juice” after the kush family of cannabis strains. He’s been known to brag that he spends about $10,000 a month on weed.
Also, he’s launched his own line of rolling papers, named Wiz Khalifa Brand Rolling Papers. So a weed mobile game all about cannabis should not be all that surprising.
The premise of “Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm” is pretty simple. You’re basically running a cannabis business: you have to grow, harvest, and sell your weed, before reinvesting it to grow your digital weed empire.
The game aims to offer players an authentic experience of the legal cannabis industry. In future versions of the mobile game, players will be able to expand their operations. Initially, players will try to build their virtual weed business in the U.S. before spreading it to other parts of the world.
“Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm” comes from Warner Music Artist Services, a wing of WMG that supports Atlantic Records in non-music projects. Khalifa designed and made the game in partnership with Metamoki, a boutique game studio and a pioneer in the free-to-play gaming industry.
Better Than Pokémon?
Not surprisingly, Wiz believes in his product. Here’s how he described it on his Instagram page: “It’s a fun game and I play the shit all the time. Better than Pokémon.”
According to a press release, the game is also meant to be educational. It was designed to “offer a glimpse into the future of legalized cannabis, and the opportunities it has already created for a new generation of entrepreneurs and marijuana enthusiasts alike.”
The game gives players a chance to focus on “capturing the state of the marijuana industry by seizing opportunities in entrepreneurial fashion, reinvesting into business, and compounding returns.”
“Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm” brings together the best of the cannabis world and the best of the business world. And it offers players a fun way to connect with the rapidly-growing legal cannabis industry.
While the game won’t be out until 420, Wiz is giving some lucky fans a chance to check it out early. He’s putting on a contest as part of the build-up to the game’s release.
If you visit the game’s website, you can sign up for a sneak peek of the game. You can also enter for a chance to win a bunch of other 420-themed prizes.
You can score smoking kits that include T-shirts, rolling papers, cones, and more. Fans can also win a trip to celebrate 420 in Colorado.
And the Grand Prize winner gets to hang out with Khalifa at his 420 performance, as well as an exclusive dispensary tour with the rapper. Check it out and get ready for a little 420 gaming.
