Expectations run high with "Jesus Piece," Game's last hurrah on Interscope.

Before Game released The Documentary in early 2005, it was hard to imagine he’d have as well-received a career he’s had thus far. Label drama and beefs aside, the artist formerly known as The Game has built a formidable discography that few emcees can rival. For someone so inconsistent in his rhetoric, Game has been the model of consistency in music. As a result, expectations run high with Jesus Piece, Game’s last hurrah on Interscope.

JP sets it off with “Scared Now.” Simple and generic from its production to its chorus, the song gets no help from its subject matter, nor from Meek Mill’s easily-identifiable brand of Shout Rap. “Ali Bomaye” is a significant improvement in the production department, with rich productions and epic vocal samples. 2 Chainz and Rick Ross are merely tolerable on the cut (neither brings their best), but Game’s ear for production serves him well here. The album improves quickly, however, with the Kanye West and Common-assisted title track, and “Pray,” featuring J. Cole. “Church” is Game’s attempt to pander to a Southern sound (remember when Fat Joe “switched to southpaw?”), but redeems him on cuts like “Name Me King” and “See No Evil.”

As for the album’s religious theme, Game maintains it throughout Jesus Piece, but rarely does it reach its peak. A special exception is “Hallelujah” ft. Jamie Foxx, where Game hilariously spits about some in-Church indiscretions that seem harmless, but point to bigger issues: “And all this ass in here, how do I focus? / Collection plate bulging damn, pastor, you the coldest / …Yeah I know the chicken good, but your soul ain’t / And your outfit clean, but your nose ain’t / And I suppose that nobody a liar in here / If that were true, the whole church would be on fire in here / I’m sho’ glad we got a choir in here / To wake me up every time I get tired in here.” It’s a shame Game didn’t take the opportunity to explore his opinions or personal experiences with religion on Jesus Piece, given how clear it is that he has strong feelings on the subject.

Nearly a decade into his career, the complaints about Game are well-established, and generally warranted: he’s an incessant name-dropper to the point that it’s distracting, he’s essentially bi-polar with regard to his opinion of 50 Cent, Jay-Z, and a slew of other artists, and he revisits the same subject matter repeatedly. That being said, Game has crafted several outstanding albums through his ability to make extremely judicious use of varied producers (his ear for beats might be second-to-none) and featured guests. On Jesus Piece, these strengths aren’t nearly as prominent. The production is generally strong and memorable, yet inconsistent at times. Where the album really falters is with the features. Listeners can’t help but wonder whether Game sat back, identified Maybach Music Group, Young Money, and G.O.O.D. Music as the hottest crews in the game, and simply decided to pick a few from each. Sure, there’s a lot of talent amongst those lineups, but there’s also a lot of homogeneity. As the features go, so does an album so replete with them.

Jesus Piece ends up being the least compelling release in Game’s storied catalogue, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a listen. Either way, Jayceon Taylor can look back at the collection of releases he dropped during his tenure on Interscope and walk away proud.

  • kabasa

    this album is just on another level i think its his best work since documentary. production is great, lyrically great. it gets a 5/5 from me.

  • Kr

    Game on another level. One of the best albums in its year.

  • arjun adiyodi

    superrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  • Kotseng Makena

    Jesus Piece, Never judge me bout my religion, I put about 50K on Jesus's eyes. This album is mad dope

  • OG

    Huge game fan but this album is shit. Jay Rock is who i turn to now..

    • NiCK

      yea Jay Rock dope. But Game stil dope, and this album is dope. this nigga killed it from production to him rapping. Dis motherfucka dope

  • Jack Telford

    This album is complete fucking shit do you guys not understand? There is about 6 good songs all up and rest are useless. All this trashy hip-hop, his following the crowd. Game is no longer The Game, he doesn't even deserve that because The Game brought us The Documentary which is one of the best albums of all times and this Jesus Piece doesn't deserve any type of high rating, it's just trash music. Features are shit.

    • Mike C

      GAME killed it with this album, even if only 6 songs are BANGERS. Those 6 songs KILLED it on production.. If you have a good system you know this album is a demo. He name drops alot, but on Jesus Piece; Ali Bomaye, and Name me KING, he KILLED IT. PUSHA is ridiculous. Name me KING is a highlight Game is #1 Just has to keep spitting.. Kendrick and Problem are HUNGRY

    • Westo

      Thats ya opinion mate games ulbum dope from production,lyrics to features dope

    • NiCk

      This album is dope, we cant expect every Game album to sound like the Doccumentary or any of his previous albums. Game is a bussiness man now and da nigga gotta eat. He still a gangster, but he is a grown man now. have family and kids. So let just give this motherfucka a break. he is stil dope and the album dope also

    • MiikoolManners

      100% agree, how do ppl like this?? Havent they heard Doctors Advocate or Documentary?? Even LAX was better than this... Hope the real GAME comes back

    • Dunk

      completely agree..i would even say 6..i am a huge game fan but hes hanging out with all these young money faggots and tryin to do whatever hes gotta do to stay relevant..guess he just aint a gangsta no more either..i just wanna hear huim kill some siick beats,hopefully he gets it together and does his own thing with his new record label..this album had no effort from him,seems like he was just getting it out already to be done with interscope

    Now a days a CD get good reviews if it has a few good songs, and this album is one of them... Maybe 3 good songs... Maybe!!! ************Its worth a Download, not a purchase***********

  • Ken

    my 6-CD player in my car still has this disc in it. even K dot's is out of my rotation at this point. it's a really tough choice, but my pick for best track is "Can't Get Right." "finally got the crown, this muthafucker meant for me/ funny how ya do ya top 5's and don't mention me." on point. 4/5

  • Breh

    Still bumpin this shit, great album!!

    Spot-on review. Can't wait to hear what Game does for his next album, without Interscope and Jimmy Iovine. Hopefully he stills gets a few Dr. Dre beats though

  • Anonymous

    crazy good album, the reason i believe this gets a 4/5 star is because Game put too many features on it. The guy can spit dope, i have no idea why is doesn't solo that shit like the documentary. And celebration is wack lol

  • Ray

    This album is incredible! Idk WTF yall are listening too!

  • eddiejiovanni

    Near flawless album! Excellent concept! A concept we all deal with every single day! Game's lyrical flow on JP is arguably the best I've heard in years. The features are tight! All around excellent excellent album! This album will go platinum within a year! #ItsThatGood

  • Kizman

    Game is a peculiar guy..wants to reunite with the unit..disses 50 cent BISD sales ..so happened that RED album did worst..then 50 disses him on My life..he goes on bigboi n says he'll release another diss record..then in a recent interview he says he heard 'My Life' before the public did n knew he was dissed and knew it was the old 50?? and throws hints that he wants to end the beef..then he releases this album..wow..there are no 50 cent stans on this page..bunch of ppl who express themselves in different ways are on this page.. but at the end of the day.50 cent is doin better than game right now..so its all up to shyne to do better.. n ppl say 50 cent likes to generate beefs when his album drops smh

    1 - The Documentary 2 - LAX (Why is it hated so much? LAX Files, My Life, Angel, Letter To The King, and House of Pain are super ill) 3 - Doctors Advocate 4 - Jesus Piece 5 - RED Album your weakest album is still pretty good game! well done! @LexxieRyanPbliv

  • Parveg

    One of the best quality albums to come out in a while. Tells quite a story, sticks to the topic, entertains, just blessed music. Classic no doubt

  • dunk

    i hated it a lot at first..just like red album cause both just arent up to what hes really capable of! but..there def is a few good songs on here, just don't get why the effin celebration version with bone thugz isn't the main version..oh well its got heaps of shit features and game could have done better but lets just hope he moves on and drops some good shit

    I was very much looking forward to Jesus Piece as Game is one of my top 3 favorite artists and he had never disapointed me, until now. This album is very average and I only really liked a couple of tracks on it. F*** Jesus Piece, bring that gangsta sh** back Game!!!

    GAME is so (CONFUSED) to me. One song he raps like Drake...next song he raps like Rick Ross...he copies Big Boi's flow on RED Album...he raps like Dr. Dre on DOCTOR's ADVOCATE. He made a "TWENTY MINUTE" freestyle song over a DJ SKEE beat that had to be remixed so we didn't die of monotony from the "Exhibit A" by Jay Electronica. This album had some great production, but even the controversial album cover proved that there was more flash than substance.

  • bkstylz

    I disagree with this review. This is a pretty solid album, regardless who is featured and how much he is name dropping. The bars are good. The flow is always on point and the beats knock. What else is there?

    best album Game done

  • Sean McCabe

    Album goes hard. Only flaw is over 20 features on 13 tracks...or 15 tracks if you have the bonus. But all of the features are pretty fire. Definetly better than his previous album

    Jesus Piece, Wack! Red Album, Wack! Every thing before Red Album, Tight! Glad this his last album on my label, he's falling off.

    This why I let the nigga go, he kept on crapping on about god and shit. Religion ain't suppose to be in west side hip hop. Compton ain't no gospel Church. 1/5 on the album. Game needs to pick up his game quick!! Sorry Bra but the hip hop god has spoken.

    • nick

      good try but dre already said he thought the album was very good and congradulated him. also since you couldnt understand yourself most of the time this album raises the question to the entire culture that game grew up and lives in how we can claim to be religous people and then behave that we do

I got T.I, Big Boi, Joe Budden's(mxtape) and Wiz and i honestly can't listen to nothing else but this shit. Jesus Piece is a wondeful album. Great beats, Features is better then expected, and Game spits and always have been good at spitting. 4.5 out of 5.

    game dropped album of the year. he did it just to satisfy his contract, but had a great concept, and put together a complete album. if u include all of the sunday service tracks, i think this is games best album. the features worked... and im not even a big fan of most of the artists.

If every artist that represented our culture loved it as much as The Game hip hop would be in a great place.

  • Ny-Harlem

    With all that said Undun is a good Album but its not a perfect 5 or Album of the year in my opinion. Its close to Album of the year for last year but not this year.(and Section 80 is the best from last year) You niggas at HipHopDx need to hirer some people from the hood. To many of you nerd niggas in office over there. I hear no street anaylsis from this site and thats where this hiphop shit started. After hearing Undun and seeing how HipHopDX game Undun a perfect 5 proves to me they hear for music and mines is different. More importantly, Game Album is at least a 4.5. Game really impressed this album. If you didn't hear his shit yet go listen to it. That shit is a great Album. Might be Album of the year. Only LIG is better and thats a reach. No offense to GKMC but i think Jesus Piece is a little better.

  • Ny-Harlem

    Yo i finally got the chance to hear and listen to "The Roots" album "Undun" and these niggas on this website gave that Album a perfect 5. Look that Album was ok but i found nothing special about that shit. I thought the beats would be out of this world(The Roots band is nice with the beats) The beats were cool but nothing special. I thought Black Thought would black out on this shit like he did on Big Pun's Album. He spit and went in but nothing special. Point is this website got a different ear for music then i do. They won't give respect to someone like Game or Wu-block but they give mad props to the Roots. I seen a few comments stating how great the Roots album was. Yo to me that shit aint all that great. Its ok and what makes me mad about that shit is the last 3 songs are some bullshit ass beats that end the album with no lyrics. How some people think that shit is Album of the year is beyond me. My point is this website is into that nerd fake positive shit. Thats the only reason why they could give Nas' Untitled album a 4.5 and give Nas' LIG album only a 4.0 when LIG is so obviously overall. The untitled Album is hot and more thoughtful but no way is it better then LIG.(i still bump LIG)

    • Luuuc

      I feel you on that (and I'm a fan of The Roots btw, but Undun was far from their best work. Game Theory was their last truly killer album) and you are on point about Nas too. I think Game is nice but R.E.D. was hit & miss. Jesus Piece him back in form. This is already in my top 10 for the year. Repeated spins will reveal how high it ends up.

      What makes LIG so great to me is the production. You don't hear Nas rhyme over these kind of beats alot. No-I.D did his work. Not one wack song on that Album(summer on smash i like it from the beginning) The beats is on point and Nas did what he always does. Paint vivid pictures throw his poetry. LIG is easily my 4th or 5th best Nas Album. Behind-it was written, Illmatic, Stillmatic and The lost tapes.

    • Anonymous

      Life is good is flawless my G. Half the songs he took it back to that Illmatic hungry style, and mixed it up with his real life divorce. Also LIG's is probably the best production Nas had since Stillmatic.

  • NY-Harlem

    I see alot of people saying that game bites people style(or borrow) everytime he features someone. Its so obvious on the Red album he did that. Which is why that Album became so wack quickly. But i honestly didn't feel that way on this Album. He stayed in his own lane. I think some people are getting it twisted with Game doing songs with Ross and doing the kind of song that fits Rick Ross. Cause he didn't bit he flow on that AliBomaye song. And he didn't flow like Common on Jesus Piece. He is only guilty of doing songs and using beats the people he feature would probably do. Which i have no problem with. Great fucking Album/

  • jayvon28

    Dope album! only thing that's keeping it from hitting at least a 4.5 rating is the fact it has too many features. So much it seems like a industry compilation album. Other than that still a banger worth checking out

  • Dx

    Can't even choose my fav song on this album, so many nice tracks on it - but what an intro song! This album is fire!

  • NY-Harlem

    I said yesterday the rating was fair. I personally thought it should be a 4.0. But i have to say that this Album is in the running for album of the year easily. Game put out a very thoughtful Album. This Album might be his best Album.(Tho Documentary was a great Album) I said might be tho. HipHopdx should have giving this Album at least a 4. And i think 4.5 is correct. I understand this site like all that concious shit(i can't take to much of that shit) and positive shit. Sometimes they give respect to hardcore rappers but not enough. But Game put out a great project. I said 5 songs were mediocore yesterday. The rest of the album had some of the best songs i heard in a while. But those 5 songs i said was mediocore is growing on me. Its not one wack song on this Album.(maybe "I Remember") Love this album Great year in hip hop 2012 real shit.

  • Michael

    Top Album! Production was on point, lyrics were Dope.

    Solid album. If you buy it retail watch out b/c youll get different bonus tracks depending on where you get it (target vs. best buy vs. itunes). I'd say prob. the best album of 2012 though.

  • Ny-Harlem

    With all that said, Game Album is solid and the rating might be just about right. This Album has 10 of the most hottest songs that came out this year alone. But the other 5 songs are either weak or mediocore. Personally i think the Album deserves at least a 4. It definitely has some bangers on here. Game is still annoying with all that dick riding name dropping shit. But with that bullshit out the way(he still does it alot tho) the Album is solid. Not a Classic but its solid.

  • Ny-Harlem

    Look i aint a 2chain or Rick Ross fan myself. And tho i fucks with they music a little, i don't really listen to that type of music they make unless im in the club. But to say that 2Chains and Rick Ross were merely tolerable is just straight up fucking hating. I know websites like this is supposed to give respect to underground rappers and hate on niggas like Ross and 2Chains. But both Ross and Chains went the fuck off on that song.(well went off for their ability) I honestly believe Game wrote 2chains verse. Another thing i realize how many fucking geeks and nerds who write about this type of shit on this hip hop sites. Not to many niggas in the hood on these sites. Niggas seem to give props and respect to only consious rap which is fucking wack. You nerd niggas stop writing about this shit.

    My top 5 list of 2012: 1. Kendrick Lamar - GKMC 7 / 5 Stars 2. Apollo Brown & Guilty Simpson - Dice Game / 5 Stars 3. Nas - Life is good / 4,5 Stars 4. Game - Jesus Piece /4 Stars 5. Joe Budden - A loose quarter / 4 Stars

  • Amazing

    Whole album is great, production is tight, the features doing good, specially the track with Kenrick and Tank. The beats on this album are something completely new, and only them makes the album worth buying!

  • the Grza

    The best thing about the album is the production, but Game is trend hopping on what's hot, going the southern wrote for most of the disc. Too many features on the album are forced and unnecessary. A lot of shit features take away from the cohesion of the album. And no surprise like the rest of Game's albums, way too much pointless name dropping. In the middle of a decent verse he'll say Hov, Pac or Big and a list of others randomly for no reason. After 5 albums we get the point that you like a lot of rappers. That shit is annoying as fcuk. Style wise he's gotten into a bad habit of mimicking his features which just sounds stupid. If he would have trimmed some features and learn to keep other people's names out his mouth his could have been a lot better. After all,after RED Album dropped he promised no features or name dropping on his next album. But what's a promise from Game's bi-polar ass...lol.

    the game had to make 'jesus piece' in 60 days so it's not that bad.

    Game is the greatest biter in hiphop: steal flows steals songconcepts is bipolar namedrops in every song 10 rappers So you call this shit hot????? If it would be 86 or 94 a rapper like Game would never gotten a deal but sweeping the floors at the defjams studios.

      One thing is being influenced by other rappers, and another is stealing their whole package. If I have some talent for paiting, for example, and I adapt a classical approach instead of modern because Mona Lisa, it based on my amazement for what can be achieved with those technique. But that doesn't mean that I start mimicking shamelessly Leonardo's own style, and try to re-paint/duplicate the original like it was mine in the first place.

      Biggie had 10.000 diffent flows. No one could fuck with Biggie's flows.

    • Anonymous

      Who actually has a truly original, distinctive flow? (BIG, Jay-Z, Kanye - one flow which had a natural progression in that order) (Tech and Busta - who have similar yet very different styles, and evolved separately) There's Eminem, who changes style every song... There's Nas, Big Boi and Andre 3000 (who have similar styles, but Nas' style evolved separately from the other two)... and the child of all three, Kendrick (and I guess you could argue Big Sean into this as well) Noone's style is truly original, but you can notice blatant style biters (they're not just Game). Listen to Wiz Khalifa in the 2nd verse of "Work Hard, Play Hard" for another example...

    • Anonymous

      i thought i was the only one that realized he used other people's flows.

    • the Grza

      Pretty much all true. I wouldn't call him the greatest biter, but he definitely is one. Like you said, he could never get away with shit like this in the 80's or 90's. There were unwritten rules back then. Now mimicking other artists styles is considered hot. Fans will eat up anything today.

  • Ken

    Yeah, there are a lot of "features." A lot of them feature just one individual pop-R&B star who performs the song's hook and the rest is just Game. so yeah, TECHNICALLY almost every song has a feature, but when you actually listen to the album you realize that a lot are just Game verses intercut with brief hooks. oh, and yeah, this is still a 5-star album imo. top three albums of the year are, in no particular order: Slaughterhouse with "welcome to Our House" Game with "Jesus Piece" and K Dot with that impressive as fuck concept-type album "good kid, m.A.A.d city." Game haters can suck a dick, all I know is that when Dr. Dre sends out a positive message over the internet about an album, I'll take the GOAT rap producer's opinion any day over this lame dx horseshit.

  • kyle

    Overall this review is right in the sense that he needs to stop dropping the names of 50 cent and other record labels. Just let that shit go, on the other hand it makes for inspiring music, which Game has done perfectly with this. In regards to his albums as a whole, this is the best one yet, and the names featured only makes it better and helps out with marketing. This will be a classic album and is definitely in the top three for this year. Inconsistent? Rappers' lives change and with that so does their music, actually having a family and a regular life outside of music is what changed his morals, cop this album!

  • Mike

    the review was whack af. the rating is about right compared to all his work but rated by itself i think is about a 4.25. #Je5usPiece

  • Real HipHop!

    Finally got my Jesus Piece Delux version today, and all I can is that it's simply amazing. The beats are sick, Game raps brilliant and it has replay value.Everyone who likes real hiphop, buy this album - trust me it's worth it!

  • Anonymous

    I agree for most part with this review, there some good beats there but game just can t get enough of the name dropping and huge guest line up ridicolous and dude is so emotional still has 50 and g-unit in his mouth, at some point you got to let go. he developed is own west-coast brand and he can rap but he doesn t need the names instead go deppen yr subject matter

  • Yeah

    Terrible review. The writer sounds like he was hurt by Game in the past. This is the 2nd best album released this year (I think we know which is no. 1). Great production, very cohesive, vicious rhymes & features & a hilarious twist to a well worn theme (religion). How can you not love this?

  • karryl

    Its funny that when someone like Jay-z shows off different flows everyone praises him, giving him points for those flows in determining who the greatest ever is. Game may be making a point on some of them; by showing off the flow of hte rapper hes on a song with he proves he can do it too if he wants. He can do it all. Did you hear his shyne impressions? omg. Hes a very talented guy. The album is very good. It has a ton of good songs; only bad ones being church and the one with young jeezy

    At least post a different review. you know, like perhaps someone who actually listened to the entire album and is able to recognize greatness when they hear it. and anyone who doesn't like this album clearly didn't listen to the songs "Pray" and "Can't Get Right."

    For me name dropping never been an issue, the style "jacking" ain't a big deal either still with all that, I don't get how people could say this album is not great. Is it his best ever, nope. But it shits on RED. Production is crazy, maybe the best I've heard on any album minus WTT in the past couple years. Even with all the feats, it's not overwhelming. 5 star for the album, 2 star for the review.

      I think manny means kendrick's first studio album. Game's documentary was his first studio album, however his first album was independant, Untold Story, which came released in 2004. And Section.80 was independant as well. So yes gkmc and documentary can be compared.

    • Anonymous

      Section .80 was Kendrick's first album

  • hj

    DA>DOC>LAX>JP>RED and they are all dope albums

  • kenn

    The sampling on this album was great; and game really understands how to make a complete song. I think the lyrics on GKMC were great but the songs as a whoel have no replay value like a classic song does. I cant think of more than one or two songs that I would replay on it. Poetic Justice? Not to just be comparing the two but we are in 2012 and this will be up for one of the best hip hop albums I would assume. In my eyes Game has always been a good enough lyricist to not be a sell out, while giving you the beats and hook that are needed for great rap music. LEts not forget, songs like In da Club and How we do are classics...it doesnt have to be a ridiculous flow and lyric out of this world to be a great SONG. GAme gives you really good songs on here including: JEsus Piece, Can't get right, Name Me King, Ali Bomaye(excluding most of 2 chainz), Blood Diamonds. Then, another tear is Heavens Arms, All That Lady, Pray; and I would still play those three over most of the other songs that dropped this year. If you disagree thats fine, maybe you like the 2 chainz style rap or maybe you like the superp lyricism but not great songs like Kendrick Gave us. All I know is, in 3 years, I think a lot of us will be more likely to say 'damn I want to hear the JEsus Piece song than that Swimmin Pools.

    • boss

      GKMC has mad relpay value and will be listened to moer than jesus piece. lmao. and you dont think the album has well constructed songs? you're crazy.

  • Mu

    Game may be bipolar as hell and gets annoying at times with his beef and media actics, but one thing you CAN'T say is that he doesn't make serious efforts to make good hip-hop music. Who cares if he name drops? He knows he gets criticized for it so he just embraces it and continues to do it. I'll even acknowledge that Game tends to emulate other rappers that he collabs with on his songs, but u know what?? 90% of the time, it comes out good. Unlike rappers like Lil Wayne, you can tell Game cares about having a great catalog of music and leaving a legacy. This album is dope.. beats bang, rhymes bang, thats all we can ask for.

    • Anonymous

      The only thing ill add to that is the whole emulating rappers on tracks they feature on is what to me is the main problem with him being a great rapper. Any of the great rappers past and present never needed to do that. He asked to be mentioned in the top 5? really? I will say this is his best album since documentary. Kanye hooked with up with these beats. But i wish a scarface, jay (never happen), jada/ featuring on any of these tracks would have been sick!! And if game was asking dead or alive its 1. pac 2.Big 3.jay 4.nas 5.scarface.. but thats just me

  • Evanator

    I love how people bitch and moan about the abundant amount of features on this album but then get pissed when they find out Kanye didn't spit a verse on the title track. Fucking hypocrites. What do you expect from a Game album? He has had numerous features on every one of his albums. All that aside, on first listen, I thought it was a pretty decent album. Things get off to an iffy start with "Scared Now" (mainly because of Meek Mill); however, the album excels from there on. He has some deep content on here: "Pray", "Can't Get Right", and "Blood Diamonds" to name a few. I was pleasantly surprised by "Ali Bomaye". I usually skip every track 2 Chainz is on because he is a terrible rapper, but this track turned out really nice. Game spits a mean verse, and the production is fire. Some of my favorite tracks: "See No Evil", "Jesus Piece", and "Name Me King". The only skippable track is "I Remember". The chorus is terrible, and the subject matter is the same old bullshit. This era of Lex Lugerish production with hyper hi-hats and distorted bass needs to end, it sounds like shit. Side note: It would have been nice if the "Celebration" remix was included on the deluxe version. Oh well. Lyrics: 3.75/5 Production: 4.25/5 Originality: 3.00/5 Overall: 3.75/5

    I do not even consider this to be a legitimate review. There are parts of it where it is clear the author didn't give each track their full and undivided attention. Listen to "Ali Bomaye"; 2 Chainz and Rozay spit fire, while the reviewer states that they are merely "tolerable." The reviewer is either going deaf, having an ulterior motive for writing that shit, or both. Also, they're probably a dick. I know this will probably be deleted cuz I "said some mean things." whaaaaa. what are you twelve years old? Stop mislabeling excellent albums and I won't go tell you to go suck a dick. And I'm not a "Game stan" or anything like that. I'll be the first to say that I thought LAX sucked 80% of the time. I even think DA is OVERRATED by all the people who say it's UNDERRATED. All I know is that Game released a classic rap album last year--yes, I'm talking about RED album. That shit was straight up hip-hop; "Ricky" is one of the great rap songs of the past two years. "Jesus Piece" is a classic modern rap album. Listen to "Pray." Or "Can't Get Right." What

    Game never really disappoints at album time for me. This is no exception. This shit is getting banged to death

  • Jaime

    No option for 4.75 so 5 it is give credit where it's do he changed his whole album around if you a real fan you know it was supposed to be called 5 but game respects trey and the only song he saved was jesus piece. He clutched it out

  • Ken

    The production is fantastic, what are you talking about?? did you not listen to "Name Me King"? But even besides that, overall it's great as well. And how do you listen to this album and NOT come away from it thinking Game didn't absolutely deliver every single detail regarding his views on religion. Also, Game's flow has changed a bit, and for the better. Some of the songs sound like tracks off of "good kid, m.A.A.d city." (That's a very good thing by the way) End-note: "Pray" is one of the best songs of the year.

    • Ken

      listen to "Ricky" and then come tell me he has no flow. That song is a classic. and Jesus Piece just reconfirms in my mind that Game is way past LAX cuz the R.E.D. album was a classic and after listening to it over and over, I'm beginning to think "Jesus Piece" is too. it just flows so naturally. just my opinion is all.

    • boss1@w.org

      dude he doesnt even have his own flow. he just uses, meeks, future's, biggie's, kenye's, etc.

    • Ken

      Oh, and for the record, this is a 5-star album. I compare it to K Dot's debut studio album. There's so much serious soul-searching that Game does here, I can't ignore or deny it. he keeps it 100 and a half on every. single. track. also, could Kevin Hart do a skit on every rap album from now on? shit is hysterical.

  • Jaime

    4.75 he needed at least another song with no features I wish he would've included at least 2 of bus songs from Sunday service also. Not a disappointment but it is a food album and Kevin hart added just that little more. 4.75

  • boss

    lol at everyone saying this review must hate the game. 3.5 is a good, generous rating. not every album is god enough for a 4 or a 5. get over it.

  • BiG

    3.5? This album isn't Game's best work, however the production and lyrics are very decent. This album deserves at least a solid 4. "Jesus Piece" is one of the best albums in 2012 thus far, therefore it deserves a way better rating. Step Up HHDX!

  • Eastside Slim

    Fantastic album.

  • CHOLO

    Damn is Game even on this album? Too many features, and when Game does rap, he's jackin someone else's flow.

  • Bri Zatulove

    2nd best album 2012..

  • Bri

    this is actually the best album of the year behind gkmc

  • HiphopRadio

    NOT SURE what this website is smoking... but this is the best album game has dropped from the doctors advocate. All tracks have replay value and his lyrics compared to the documentary days.. damn.. for real.. is that even a question..?? he lyrically outshines every guest on this album. Production has always been there for game, but great overall sounds has not.. and jesus piece delivers that all the way.. how many albums now days can you listen to without pushing "skip" (a very select few) this should be rated a 4 star min, its a very solid album and the features are perfectly placed in the right areas. you couldnt even tell Jamie foxx was on hallelujah cause hes singing background or french Montana was on the record cause he says 1 thing or when fabulous' verse fades out because that's all the track needed..... anyways.. im a fan of hip hop music and the general public always likes to see a winner loose.. that's natural.. but lets be real and give credit where we see it -100

  • Nick

    The albums alright just not as good as I expected it to be. Many people called it his best album since "The Documentary". I laughed at those responses cuz they must have forgot about "Doctors Advocate". In my honest opinion I think Game could have done without the large quantity of guest features. Hes capable of crafting good albums on his own. Unfortunately hes a tend hopper and that greatly affects his music and the perception he sets off with his fans. Games a good rapper but if you continue to overload your albums with guest features then its not really YOUR album. You can't be a Dr. Dre because he creates classic material that STILL stands to this day. An artists album is a testament to his body of work, his art and understanding. If you fill it with other guests then its no longer your body of art. I hope Game understands this cuz you said you were rededicated to Hip Hop on the R.E.D album yet it didn't live up to the standards you portrayed. If you were really rededicated then you would have stopped following trends. You can't keep on following Lil Wayne and Rick Ross. They aren't good rappers as you are which is why they can't hold an album by themselves to which is why they have an abundance of guest features. Game just DO YOU and you'll see the difference in how many fans come back to you.

      I agree and please stop the name droppin dogg, damn.

      Uh The Documentary was the same thing hes doing now. See i hate people like you who stay rewriting shit. The Documentary was him basically having the same type of production style that was famous for Aftermath artists at the time (ie 50 cent) and that gangsta shit was popping so that was what he was rapping about. I swear i hate mfs like you who base everything on the popularity of the an album. Doctor's Advocate is his best album but cuz it didnt sell the samem, he wasnt a new artists and all thew news about the G-Unit hoopla/beef was around then ppl like u play it off. Not just with Game with anyone in hip-hop with a dope debute album.

    • GZA

      Agreed, Game is dope. He needs to rap like what he did in The Documentary.

  • So Icy Boi

    This Jesus Piece album fuckin sucks, it sounds like a stupidass mixtape and the features suck, beats are not good. Even red album was better than this shit. Game fell off, stop rappin if u aint got nothin to give to rap. Even khaleds album this year was better than this shit. K-Dot hiphop album of the year.

    Definitely deserves 4 stars the least, 4.5 the most. No wonder why I don't frequent this site. And isn't this the site that gave Game awards for some shit that they seem to do at the end of every year? Go get the album, get the Best Buy Deluxe. Holy Ghost and a Dre track are the bonus. And those are dope songs as well. And in case you haven't heard all of the other songs that he didn't get cleared for the album, I suggest you listen to those as well. Judas Closet ft. Nipsey, Rollin ft. Z-Ro Paul Wall Slim Thug, Black Jesus, Celebration Remix ft. Bone Thugs. And whoever says Church is a wack song, you're retarded. That's gonna be a great club song. I'm sure that'll be the next single after All That (Lady)!!! FOH!!! Name him King! Since there's no halves. 5Stars

    what a horrible review, this album is definitely one of the years best

  • Tee

    Type of fuckin review is this? It's damned if he do damned if he don't. He giving you club bangas, real shit and even on the club bangas he spittin better than your average club song. Ya'll gotta understand we in a different time frame where he can spit a strong hip hop album club music is what's gone make HIM MONEY. So I think he did a good job meeting the middle which is mainstream vs. hip hop. Now my problem is his playing with Jesus which is VERY QUESTIONABLE. Make me feel like I'm doomed to hell for listening to his album kmsl Church, Pray, All That (Lady), See No Evil Hallelujah all go hard

    This review is bias. This album is probably his best since the Doc. In fact, the review takes the same stance to many songs as other reviews. Allhiphop gave it an 8/10 - thats more reasonable. But the public speaks here-- Go pick up this album!! There's a reason everyone is putting above a 4 here!

  • Dontae Blake

    Game destroyed 50's empire. West Coast!!

  • Taylor

    It's funny because all of you at HipHopDX give Game a ton of love all year long and have always seemed to be a big supporter of him throughout his entire career. When it comes to album reviews, I want no biased opinions and I think you guys do a good job for THE MOST PART. However, its when I read comments like "he name drops too much" when I get irritated. No surprise with the name drops here, he has been doing it for years so get over it. To me though, the fact that you give this album a 3 1/2 stars is very stupid. The production is on point in this album, although it may not be his best album, it is clearly up there and should get atleast a 4. You guys tend to give high ratings to classic rappers that dont seem to deserve it but at first chance to rate a Game album, you go the safe route with 3 1/2 so that you dont piss of too many people but also dont praise it. The person who wrote this review is not very good at their job. The fact that you say it is the least compelling of all his releases is moronic. I think we can all agree this is better than RED and LAX. From top to bottom, production and lyrics are on point. Yes there are too many features, and yes Chuck Taylor tends to name drop and copy some of his features flows, but he has improved significantly on this album. I am willing to bet that you will be putting this album on your year end awards for your list of top albums of the year just like you have done for all his other albums after giving it mediocre reviews. Man up and stand behind your opinions, dont act like Roling Stone who often gives albums average reviews only to years later fix it and give 4 or 4 1/2 stars (example- Raekwon Only Built 4 Cuban Linx). I will say scared now is probably one of the weaker cuts and one of his worst intros to an album, but it isnt a bad song and the rest of the album is very good. My rating is 4/5 which you should have done. Oh thats right, this isn't a legendary rapper that you will rate at least a 4 just to save face regardless of whether or not they put out a good album. I am a big fan of this website and constantly visit it, but I believe you have gotten this one wrong like you have others in the past. Look at what the rest of the critics are saying about this album and compare it to yours and see the difference. Get your facts straight

      BoomBoom Room aint got his mind right, he be buggin if u ask me. I'm from Watts, California and Game not only runs our coast but the country too. I grew up hangin with some cats that ran with big Fase 100 and Billboard in Bompton and from the start we heard about this cat Game who in 2 years secured a deal with Aftermath and went 2 Times Platinum on these bitches. Game is the realest rapper out and has never made a Wack album...I give dis shit atleast a 4, I think the editor F'd up on this rating. I agree with Jnr, Taylor Eithered DX. Everyone stand up and make this review go down and have someone else rate it cus I Know for a fact DX has sum smarter cats up in the office. Bottom line, Game and Kendrick have the 2 best rap albums of the year, and u can't fault anyone for choosing one over the other...We got 2 classics which means the LEFT COAST IS WINNING....THE WEST IS BACK!!!!

    • BoomBoomRoom

      dis right here has to be one of the dumbest niggas round. Did game pay you a 20 sac in crack for that comment or did you just suck his d for that???

  • jerryc

    Only bad ongs were Church and I remember. You leave those two off, were looking a great album. I dont hink labels realizze that by adding the filler tracks you ruin the praise and critical reviews; thereby reducing the attention the album receivers. Its not worth the extra thousand single sales by 10 year olds or girls. Sampling was great. All the sampled song like Ali Bomaye, Hallelujah, cant get right, jesus piece, etc., were sick. This was a real good album for todays rap.

    How in the name of Jesus did this album get half a star less than R.E.D.?? HHDX are often dope, and a 3.5 isn't far off the 4 that 'Jesus Piece' deserves, but I question the judgment when R.E.D.(and L.A.X.) have 3-5 filler tracks and 'Jesus Piece' none? (I Remember is walking on thin ice tho..) This album deserved 4 stars.

  • Durbey E. Macon

    I work at Music & More by Williams in York, Pa 717-843-7071 or Musicandmorewilliams@Yahoo.com. I had a chance to listen to the album while I was cleaning the store around 2:30 today. Either you love Game or don't. I thought that I read an article on HipHopDx where he said that he wouldn't name drop so much on his current album? Besides that small issue, I really didn't have a problem with the cd and I believe the 4.16 rating by HipHopDx is fair.

  • Jorge

    "Jesus Piece ends up being the least compelling release in Games storied catalogue" ^^^I call bullshit. It's far more consistent than "R.E.D. Album" (which was a nightmare and very in-cohesive). This is his best album since "Doctor's Advocate". Not a stellar album, but mostly solid.

  • Doc

    I think there is reason to hate and not hate at the same time. There are some dope beats on there, Some features work well: King Chip, Kendrick makes sense, ect. Some features don't work: Too many to name I would give it 50-70% 3.5 tops... Its not that the Game isn't dope. It would be as simple as game getting the producers from Documentary & Docs Adv to do his next CD. IDK whats stopping him from getting beats from buckwild, hav, dre, blaze, red spyder, and the other producers he made classics with?
