Jesus Piece (Bonus Tracks, Explicit)
by The Game
Released: Dec 2012
Label: AFTERMATH/THE GAME
Has the Game gone soft? Hardly. His idea of church resembles a strip club where girls "bounce that ass like 'oh lord' then climb back up the pole to meet Christ," and the choirs recall Kanye West's Fantasy more than any gospel recording. Oh, and the Game raps in a cadence similar to Kanye on "Hallelujah," as well as Drake on "Pray." Sonically, Jesus Piece shifts away from the gangsta dramas of his earlier work towards Rick Ross-styled luxury-rap; so, of course, Rozay shows up for the preposterous but entertaining "Ali Bomaye." It's like trying to make a good album through osmosis.
