If you’ve ever been disappointed when Words With Friends refused to accept “bae” as a real word, then noted actor, rapper and pun aficionado Ludacris has a new app for you. The wordsmith behind Word of Mouf and Back for the First Time has partnered with filmmaker and startup founder Edwin Benton to create Slang N’ Friendz, a remixed Scrabble and Words With Friends app with a much less rigid view of the English language.
That’s pretty much the main draw of Slang N’ Friendz: players get bonus points for peppering the board with slang words.
“In a time when so much of the world is divided, technology has the opportunity to bring us together,” Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Bridges, said in a press release. “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.”
