In case you haven't been keeping up with the life of rapper Meek Mill, he's had a tough go of it over the last six months or so. After Meek accused Drake of using a ghostwriter on hit songs last summer, the Canadian rapper's musical response coined the phrases "trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers," "is that a world tour or your girl's tour?" and left Mill as the subject of endless jokes and memes. Now that Meek has sparked another beef, this time with 50 Cent, his unenviable situation has been captured by a videogame, Meeky Mill (warning: language). Produced by musician/indie game developer Richie Branson, it's a side-scroller platformer/endless runner where Meek dodges L bombs and missiles tossed by his rivals.

When rappers turn their beef into video games, lol.

You can download and play it on PC or Mac, or just watch the trailer for a better idea. This might not be the next Flappy Bird or Crossy Road, but if this is your preferred genre then the soundtrack (a remix featuring 50 Cent and Drake) is definitely an upgrade. You can win by collecting enough coins to rack up $1 million, but like ending Meek Mill's current losing streak, that is easier said than done. Unfortunately, there is not an option to send bottles to Charlamagne or the city of Flint, MI, which hurts its realism.
