Whiteboyz Wit Attitude: The Pursuit of Money Review

Joining the ranks of The Whitest Kids U’ Know and White Men Can’t Jump comes MichaelArts’ new title Whiteboyz Wit Attitude: The Pursuit of Money. Voted the greatest rappers of all time by two people on social media, should you join Dr. White and Crushed Ice on their FMV adventure?

Whiteboyz Wit Attitude: The Pursuit of Money Review

Hailing from Mt. Vernon, Illinois, this dynamic duo was formed in 2007 after they heard Soulja Boy’s “Crank That Soulja Boy” and realized that they can do better. What follows is a self-described journey of banging beats, epic flows, and lyricism.

This is where the player comes in. One of three different interactive music videos can be chosen, each with a different playstyle.

“Wear the Purp” has players mimicking a number of movements with their mouse and arrow keys to earn points, all while a music video is played in the background. It’s clear that this was quickly ported from the PlayStation 4 version of the game – the gyro controls of the console edition don’t quite translate to the PC. In addition, moving a mouse in a circular motion is less than intuitive. It’s not a deal breaker, but it’s not as streamlined as it should be.

“Mt. Vernon, Illinois” changes things up a little bit by putting players into a car and having them drive an officer back to the station. As players ride along at a steady clip, they must jump over livestock, blast boxes, shoot matching pictures, and make rival riders go boom. The loose aiming takes some getting used to, but the endless runner-style setup is entertaining nonetheless.

Finally, “Moneyz in the Bank (For Real)” transports players to the dance floor in an attempt to get that skrilla. Much like the Dance Dance Revolution series of games, players must line up the icons to the dashboard, netting points in the process. It’s simple, but it works.

These three minigames might seem a bit simple at their core, and they are, but Whiteboyz Wit Attitude truly excels in its humor. These two embrace their personas with gusto – you can tell that they’re having an absolute blast as they’re pouring grape soda on each other and shopping for ugly blazers. Its humor would be right at home with the Eric Andres and Tim and Erics of the world in how absolutely offbeat it all is. It’s not for everyone, but it does have an earnest charm to it not often seen these days.

For those who can’t get enough, a number of achievements can also be yours. Players can compete to beat the WWA’s high score in each music video, and there are also achievements tied to each point threshold. These three interactive music videos can be completed in around 20 minutes, but it certainly doesn’t overstay its welcome.

Move over, Eminem: The Whiteboyz Wit Attitude are here to steal the show. The gameplay might be overly basic, but their sheer style and humor gives these two some serious clout.
