Jesus Piece : The Game Album Review

I’m in a class of my own the teacher got fired/ money getting long pussy rate keep rising – 2 Chainz

Jesus Piece Album Cover Art

Scared Now ft Meek Mill

I first notice that this album has more features than a damn iPhone. I like this beat, I expect Game to come on sounding like Mill. He doesn’t. He kicks a decent 32 bars yo! Questionable bars on verse 2: “What if I told you I know who killed Biggie dog/ I ain’t no snitch but if I did it ain’t no biggie dog!” Shots fired at 50 then Meek comes on with what should have been a verse on his wack ass album! Nice. Whoever Black Metaphor is, his beats are gangsta!

Ali Bomaye ft 2 Chainz & Rick Ross

Game goes of on some civil rights shit. 2 Chainz gets ignorant & ratchet from jump off, who the hell says “I’m getting so much money I could buy your bitch….I like clubs where all the women work naked! Now Game gets his Meek Mill impression on. He sounds nice though. Damn this nigga should have been an actor, how does he mimic Meek so good? Ross’ verse is super forgettable. 2 Chainz comes back to body it. By the way the correct phrase is Ali Bumaye.

There’s a skit at the end making jokes about how niggerish, niggaz with money get putting diamonds & rubies on Jesus.

Jesus Piece ft Kanye West & Common

If the lineup doesn’t grab you, the beat does. This shit is insane! Boy 1-Nda did the beat. Game imitates Kanye & kisses Dre’s ass……again! Ye is only on the hook saying Jesus Piece? Is that all Interscope could afford after this nigga started fucking Kim K. Common is cheap though, he sounds bored on his verse & he bores me as well. Stop preaching nigga, you’re rich!

Pray ft J Cole & JMSN

Cole world is on this but I’m wondering who the fuck is JMSN?. The intro is depressing. Game goes in about a random dendai who’s losing the battle against her demons. I can relate to this. This was my last relationship if you can call it that. Best record so far. The woman is his moms. Cole goes in maaad about a HIV positive chick who he & his man hit. This is my jam! Quotable: I love women coz without women would none of us niggaz be breathing.

All that (Lady) ft Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Fabolous & Jeremih

This line up sucks except for Fab. This better not be a remake of D’Angelo’s Lady. Fuck my life, it is. Shit it sounds nice. Game kicks 2 Hov bars but tries not to bite for the rest of his verse. This is a fucking awesome remake. Wayne thinks he’s smart saying, “Multiple orgasm/ that’s my M.O.” Sean thinks he’s smart saying “My girl sweet like my hotel floor”. Okay, the fuck! How are they fading Funeral Fab out like that? I think the label ran out of money to pay for all these features so Fabolous let them have like 4 bars yo!

Name Me King ft Pusha T

I immediately await the massacre of Jayceon by my man Terror. Game kicks off bragging about how boss he is as a king. Who the fuck says “sippin Patron from The Stanley Cup/ I don’t give a fuck!” As expected Pusha comes hard with a proper verse. Quotable: Rollies cross oceans like Frank out of England/ gay pride bezel rainbow like it’s spring again!” Pusha’s a beast call the wildlife services.

See No Evil ft Kendrick Lamar & Tank

As much as Kendrick loves to pray I really want to hear his verse in the midst of all this blasphemy.  Beat is kind of lame. Kendrick goes all dark & introspective on this even quoting Snoops’ Murder was the case. I think this jam is about not snitching. Vintage gangsta rap is what this is. Can’t be mad.

Can’t Get Right ft K Roosevelt

That name is familiar but I can’t place it. He also produced the track. Game goes in shouting out the new kids on the block as well as old school dudes he respects. The name dropping Game is back! I like this K Roosevelt chap. He sings the hook. You have to laugh at Game’s Stanism for Dre, dude spits “Dre promised me records/ I never got em/ that’s why I had nightmares a nigga shot him/”. Quotable: Funny how you do your top 5 & don’t mention me! Fuck em all!

Heaven’s Arms

The only record on the album without a feature. I already like this. Game just kicks random bars from jump about how he could fuck your bitch the he goes into his fashion & money. Apparently this is because Cali weed will get you higher than heaven’s arms. Dude name drops so much on this! He even mentions Gonzo the fucking muppet! Ha! I fux with this though.

Hallelujah ft Jamie Foxx

The most popular rap record that doesn’t go ratchet. They took it to church with this beat, I can’t be mad yo! It was produced by the genius white boy Jake One. Game really did this justice but he kind of sounds like Kanye West, flow, voice everything! This dude is a mimic. I fux with this maaad! Game describes a church where every dude is pimped out, the hoes have fat asses & the pastor serves mimosas. Strip Club!

He sounds most like Ye when he spits “the service jumpin pastor serving mimosas/ with all this ass in here how do I focus/ collection plate bulging damn pastor you the coldest”! This is the best record!

Freedom ft Elijah Blake

Elijah Blake is the kid who killed it on that Rick Ross Presidential hook so I’m excited. Game namedrops Kendrick, Snoop, Dre, Hov, Nas, Birdman even Eminem. Damn! This guy even put on a voicemail from Birdman.  He kicks an interesting flow though, it’s Kendrick-esque! Elijah sounds so good can’t wait for dude to drop. Fuck Frank Ocean, Elijah’s the truth. This record gets tired quick though. The Kevin Hart skit at the end is funny & true.

Celebration ft Chris Brown, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa & Lil Wayne

This was the 1st single. I dislike this record on general principle! You do not remake a classic unless you plan on bringing it! These niggaz didn’t! They turned the greatest Bone: Thugs N Harmony record & struggler’s celebration anthem into a dumb ass stoner record! Fuck outta here! I like the way Cool & Dre smoothed out the beat though.

Game is one of hip hops biggest fans. From the name dropping you can tell that the man may be a star but he still looks at other rappers as if he was still that little kid idolizing these clowns. Game is such a big fan that he still mimics his favorite emcee, something we all have done. I don’t think this takes away from the album but rather it makes me relate to Game coz this is what I would do too! This is where Game & I connect.

If you like vintage gangsta rap, this is it. Game hasn’t impressed me like this since Doctor’s Advocate which is his best work in my opinion, fuck Documentary. I hope he doesn’t slip again now that everyone in hip hop who matters fucks with him.

Best records: Hallelujah, Pray, All that (Lady), Name Me King, See No Evil, Can’t Get Right, Heaven’s Arms & Ali Bomaye.

Black Jesus

Pamoja!!!

  1. Urmm… Where’s your review for “Church?” (Track #5).

    Anyhoo, this one has to sell coz WHOA… all those big name guest appearances (a whopping 23.. 25 if you count from the Deluxe Version), not to mention the big budget production & samples (“Lady” & “1st of tha Month”)… all these must’ve cost a shedload of $$$ and Interscope gotta recoup all that investment otherwise Game ain’t eatin from this.

  2. LMAO! That review is prolly where the song is….SMDH. Yeah you’re right about this though!
