Game Releases Album Cover for Jesus Piece

by ike

Game is no stranger to controversy. So why should his fifth, and possibly final with Interscope, album be any different?

Jesus Piece has sparked a whirlwind of dismay amongst fans, one saying

You took this shit too far

..on Game’s Instagr.am. The illustrated cover (view below) features Jesus clad with a teardrop tattoo under his eye, a Jesus piece chain around his neck and a red bandana covering his mouth.

Honestly I think the cover is “controversial” to ignite buzz surrounding the album. But like I said before, Game is no stranger to this method.

The album drops sometime in December and features appearances from Lil’ Wayne, Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Kanye West amongst others.

Game attempted to explain the album concept as well as the cover during an interview with Rap-Up TV.

You want to believe in God, but you don’t want to be criticized and ridiculed by people who think that they’re better than you. I don’t want to feel like I can’t love God or appreciate Jesus and have to put down that blunt.
