With his fifth studio album about to drop in December, West Coast rapper Game takes some time out with Beats TV to discuss how he chose the title Jesus Piece, his love for California and what he thinks of fellow Comptom emcee Kendrick Lamar.
The Interscope rapper admits that he’d originally planned to name his album Five, but when Trey Songz announced his latest LP would be called Chapter V, he instead took inspiration from a stand out track he’d already recorded entitled “Jesus Piece,” featuring Kanye West and Common.
Game also touches on the recent debate of Kendrick Lamar bringing the West Coast to the forefront of hip-hop once again and explains that although Kendrick provides a youthful voice for the West, artists such as himself and Snoop Dogg have always been around to provide good music for the fans.
However, he is nothing but complimentary of his fellow Californian Kendrick and the well deserved success that has come with his recent major label debut, good kid, m.A.A.d city, which Game states is an ‘incredible album’. It’s refreshing to see rappers being so supportive of each other!
