Rapper/actor Ludacris (real name Christopher Bridges) and CEO/founder Edwin Benton are remixing the word game with their new mobile game, Slang N' Friendz. Launching Thursday (Jan. 26), the free game will pull words from a dictionary database loaded with slang that may not be readily available on Merriam-Webster.
Players have the ability to plug in their own slang words and also add new terms. Slang N' Friendz is also equipped with definitions.
"In a time when so much of the world is divided, technology has the opportunity to bring us together," Ludacris said in a statement. "Slang N’ Friendz encourages users to connect, be friendly and identify what they have in common through language. It’s also a chance for different generations to learn about each other’s unique forms of communication and find ways to use language to bridge generation gaps."
