Little over a week ago, rapper Game revealed that he's enlisted Young Jeezy and Future for the second single off his upcoming fifth album Jesus Piece. Now, in a recent interview with MTV, the Compton emcee adds to the list of features for his impending release.
Game explained that he views Jesus Piece, which is scheduled for a December 11 release, as an updated version of Dr. Dre's The Chronic with regards to the features. He said that the LP will boast a good number of features, including 2 Chainz, Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Game also added that the album will not be an overly religious affair, as some may have assumed from the title.
"The thing about the Jesus Piece is, it's kinda like a 2012 Chronic album, if you will - I'm on it, and I'm on it a hell of a lot, but I got a lot of features," he said. "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."
He continued, "It's not a Christian album, it's not an album that's strictly about church or nothin'. 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."
