Rapper Wiz Khalifa has found a new entrepreneurial prospect to fuel his love of marijuana: a mobile game.
Khalifa will launch Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm on April 20th to commemorate every stoner’s favourite holiday, 4/20. Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm will guide players to grow cannabis, harvest the plant and reinvest their profits to succeed.
“It’s a fun game and I play it all the time. Better than Pokemon!” Wiz quips.
According to a press release, the free mobile app is aimed at shedding light on the growing legalized marijuana industry in the United States and the opportunities available for a new generation of entrepreneurs and weed aficionados alike.
Game developers at Metamoki plan to allow users to go international with their operations in future updates of Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm.
The hip-hop star is providing a sneak-peek of the app, where fans will have the chance to win a trip for two to Colorado to go backstage at his Wellness Retreat tour stop on 23 April (17), and visit Wiz’s real life marijuana dispensary, Khalifa Kush.
Wiz isn’t the first rapper and pot smoker to capitalize on the relaxed legalization regarding marijuana use. is friend and frequent collaborator Snoop Dogg also has his Leafs by Snoop line, which he unveiled in 2015 in Colorado, where recreational weed is legal. He previously launched a new media company dedicated to marijuana projects, titled MerryJane, through which he created his MTV comedy series Mary + Jane.
