Jesus Piece

Jesus Piece

The Game’s fifth disc is a concept album about his recent religious conversion – a change-up that has the bonus effect of adding a new angle to the former 50 Cent protégé’s lackluster career. Jesus Piece explores the burden of balancing righteousness and gangstaness, strip-club patronage and church attendance, with help from scads of big-name pals (Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa all show up on the redemptive “Celebration,” and Kanye West produced the spirited title track). Game has always been kind of a blandly rugged rhymer, so he gets points for infusing his soul search with some conflicted humor: “You know I love Jesus/But you can’t catch the Holy Ghost in a Prius.”
