Album: Jesus Piece (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Game opens Jesus Piece with this cut in which he threatens his enemies. The track features Meek Mill, the Philly rapper being one of 23 guests sprinkled throughout the album. "I wanted to get all of the dope hip-hop artists that are dope now that are friends of mines - from 2 Chainz to Ross to Meek Mill - and I wanted everybody to co-exist on this dope hip-hop album under this concept, which is Jesus Piece, 'cause we all be rockin' Jesus pieces," Game explained to MTV News.
  • The song's rhymes seem at odds with Jesus' instruction to Christians that they should love their neighbours. However Game explained to MTV News Jesus Piece is not a Christian record. "It's not an album that's strictly about church or nothin'," he said. "It's just a constant battle with religion and street life and hip-hop and lyricism and bitches and your wife and your kids and just the struggle."
