10 Rappers Who Love Pokemon Go
Just in case you've been living under a rock lately, Pokémon Go has swept the nation by storm. When the app was released last week, millions of people worldwide began their quest to become a Pokémon master. The app itself is pretty genius. The location-based game uses your phone's GPS to find Pokémon near you while also including landmarks within your surroundings, essentially bringing the fictional game to life. Your everyday walk to the store or run around the park just got a whole lot more interesting. Since the app's release, people have definitely lived a more active lifestyle than they ever had before.
What makes the game so popular is the nostalgia you feel when playing. Whether you grew up playing the game, watched the television show (which is still on today and has been going strong for two decades) or simply need a new game to play, you will definitely find some interest in the app. But be careful. You can run into people and objects while walking mindlessly trying to catch a Pokémon. Plus Pokémon Go has already led 11 teens right into armed robbery. So be mindful of where you're walking to, especially at night.
Swept up into the craze of the app has been a handful of rappers who just can't get enough of it. Waka Flocka Flame ran into a fan while playing the game in Atlanta. ILoveMakonnen found a great place to catch "wild Pokémon" and Tyga was spotted ignoring his girlfriend Kylie Jenner because he was too into playing the game. One person who isn't a fan of the game: Kevin Gates. Let's just say don't go on his property if you see a rare Pokémon. Find out which rappers have been playing this mobile phenomenon below.
