The Game is back with a new album, Jesus Piece, set to drop on December 11th. His last project with Interscope Records, he’s built up the hype immensely, confidently stating it’s the 2012 version of The Chronic and will be the best album of his career. While not a Christian album, there’s a strong spiritual theme throughout the songs, as evidenced by the album cover. As The Game says, “It’s not an album that’s strictly about church or nothin’. It’s just a constant battle with religion and street life and hip hop and lyricism and bitches and your wife and your kids and just the struggle.” Word.
The first single released was “Celebration”, officially released in September, but I’m featuring the leaked track “Hallelujah” with Jamie Foxx. Definitely displays the religious themes involved in this album. Love the production on this track and the incorporation of the church choir – reminds me of old Kanye.
