Game Changes Title Of Fifth Album & Explains Its Meaning

Game goes in a different direction for his long-awaited fifth album.

Game's upcoming album is no longer titled F.I.V.E.: Fear Is Victory's Evolution.

The West Coast emcee has opted to titled the album Jesus Piece instead - a title he says is inspired by the album's title track, which features Kanye West.

“Trey Songz came with his album Chapter V, and of course 50 had 5 (Murder by Numbers), I just felt like I should jump off that wagon,” said Game in an interview with VIBE. “So I went back into the studio and started doing songs that leaned more towards the title. I think people gon’ appreciate the concept once they hear the music.”

Though the title does have some spiritual connotations, Game indicates that fans shouldn't be expecting Christian Rap, per se. "I’m a Christian but I’m not ‘holier than thou’,” explained the Compton rapper. “Jesus Piece gives me an opportunity to speak about situations that people like me who love God but are still street and still wanna remain themselves without going the Pastor Mase route. It gives the opportunity to know that it’s somebody out there that feels them.”

“You can still have swag and be a Christian, you ain’t gotta wear a suit to church, you ain’t gotta take a bath in Holy water," he added. "You can still have your Ciroc in the club, it’s just a faith thing and making sure you try to do right. I’m still a father, I still smoke, I still rep Compton, I still might shoot dice or have a fight if I have to defend myself.”

Jesus Piece is set for a late 2012 release.

    I think he got scared by 50`s ``murder by numbers`` and changed the name of his album to get out of the numbers game

      game has no classic albums

      HIS FIRST 2 WAS CLASSICS, THE OTHER TWO WERE GOOD TOO!

    • burt bondy

      Yeah, and all of Lil Wayne's albums are classics too right? Game has no classic albums; The Documentary is a very good album, but not quite classic.. the rest, ehh.. RED had WAY too many guests, tried to please way too many different demographics, was all over the place, too much name dropping, etc. Game showed promise at first but it seems he's just incapable of making a classic album.

      ^ Damn nigga I hate you. Shut the fuck up. One Blood is a classic, and so is My Life. And R.E.D. didn't sound the same, all the tracks were different and they were all great. You just a lowlife hating ass fuckboi.

    • Reasons Why All Of Game's Albums Are Trash

      Documentary - Every track features another artist, plus, he didn't do shit on that record but get on the booth and rap; tracks were written by others and produced by others too. Doctor's Advocate - He doesn't stop mentioning Dre on this record. And "It's OK (One Blood)" is garbage because of that annoying ass nigga saying "One Blood" throughout the record. The L.A.X. - Trash because of "My Life", which is trash because of Lil Wayne's bitch ass. The R.E.D. Album - Every track sounds the same, and those "Dre" skits are useless.

  • ThisThatNew

    Ahh, another concept album I don't really have a cup of fucks to spill for.

  • GetReal

    It's really hard to read about ANY grown man thinking invisible people live in the sky and watch down on them, especially an artist like Game. Still a huge fan of the man's music, but as far as all this religious non-sense goes, people need to get real and grow up.

  • YEBO

    I REALLY LIKE GAME BUT THAT TITLE REALLY SUCKS... I DONT SEE ANY POINT OF WEARING JESUS PIECE LOL, THIS IS THE WORST CHAIN EVER WORN BY ANY HIP HOP ARTIST, THE COVER OF NEW ROSS ALBUM WAS GAY AS FUCK WITH SIX JESUS PIECES ON, AT LEAST THE ALBUM WAS GREAT EVEN GUCCI MANE CHAINS OR BUSTA RHYMES CHAINS ARE BETTER THAN FUCKING JESUS PIECE, IT JUST SUCKS ON EVERYBODY, FROM BIGGIE, KANYE, NAS, JAY-Z TO ROSS, ACE HOOD OR GAME PLEASE ALL RAPPERS, THROW OUT YOUR JESUS PIECES GAME IS ONE OF THE GREATEST RAPPERS OF ALL TIME ALONG WITH WIZ KHALIFA, 2 CHAINZ, LIL WAYNE, WAKA FLOCKA FLAME, SOULJA BOY AND NAS, I HOPE HE WILL GET SOME OF THEM TO FEATURE ON HIS NEW ALBUM, NOT THAT SHAME OF THE WESTCOAST KENDRICK LAMAR WAS ON RED ALBUM

    "Oh, and nobody has a "soul", you just have brains that work that SOMEHOW make you think you have a soul." Learn to put an reasoned explanation instead of somehow and by the way you playing too much GTA which life do you live ? lol

  • Mike

    The title is eh I still like Soundtrack to Chaos or F.I.V.E. "Jesus Piece" is kinda plain I like the concept of meaning though. Can't wait for Game's last Interscope album I'm pretty sure he still will be throwing out titles. Hopefully this next game track with Kayne can be a classic with wouldn't get far & crack.

    God doesn't exist.

    • this

      @Anonymous well I actually don't even need proof to know that god doesn't exist, because he is made up by humans. Just like santa really. when humans don't understand something, there are 2 ways in which they will search for answers: 1. the simple minded person sees god as the answer to a lot of things (like how humans came into existence). 2. The way in which some people try to explain what's happening on this earth (like evolution). When persons from way 2 find out something, a lot of people from way 1 will recognize it. So, basically, god is just a simple answer to things that people don't understand, just to make life easier. I think that's the origin of religion (it already is from the moment that people didn't understand rain or thunder). Of course, religion is not always a bad thing. The moral things you speak about, I think that's very valuable. However, those morals are made up by humans and not by "holy" people, so it's not "god" that teaches us moral lessons, it's the people.

      @this Yeah i dont believe in God or religion either but you cant just put things out there like its facts. How would you know that there is no heaven or hell youre still alive arent you? But also I BELIEVE the whole concept of God/Devil and religion was started cuz ppl needed some moral guidelines. Even tho i dont believe in it can u imagine how alot of ppl would be without the fear of what might happen to them? Ppl dont fear jail they dont fear anything. But alot of ppl believe that they might go to hell if they do some bad shit. On the flipside of course you wouldnt have some of the wars and crazy religious ppl so its 2 sides to a coin i guess.

    • this

      Exactly. Funny though, how many people actually believe in "god". Those people pray their whole life to "god" and some even hope for "miracles", but at the end everyone dies and no one is going to "heaven" or "hell" because those places don't exist. You just die. Oh, and nobody has a "soul", you just have brains that work that somehow make you think you have a soul. Should be a great album though, Game never disappoints on his albums

  • GAME STOP BITING

    this is a shut the fuck up moment hhm sean p jesus price game jesus piece

    • Anonymous

      Let Game do what him and his label wants him to do for his money for his life. Who cares if the concept is old and unoriginal, if it aint broke don't fix it. I'm waiting to see what Game comes with.

  • K-Ruz

    I Hope People who Call themselves Christian don't get off tracked by what Game Perceives to be Christianity, its not a case of being holier than though but simple morals and being an example to society cause we all know d outcome of alcohol,"His Smoke" wateva it is dat he is smoking and rolling dice things can get quite ugly where those things are involved..

  • Real Talk

    Beating up people doesn't make you Christian..
