On The Game’s upcoming album, the Compton-bred rapper uses a ton of religious imagery. This includes everything from the cover art, which features Jesus wearing a Jesus piece, to song titles like “Church,” Pray” and “Heaven’s Arms.”

All those religious images started with the song you see above, the album’s title track “Jesus Piece,” which features Common spitting a righteous verse and a hook from Kanye West.


Over a gospel-sounding beat from Boi-1da, The Game mixes his usual introspective lyrics and name-dropping, when he spits rhymes like:

“Tell them pray for me. It was God that brought Dre to me, even brought the n*gga Kanye for me. Blessed. But the n*gga shot Big, made a n*gga feel ashamed of the city that he lived.”

This is a heater right here.

Look out for The Game’s new album, Jesus Piece, which drops on the 11th.
