What Part of the Game Is This?

By now Jayceon Taylor should be no stranger to controversy or jaw dropping behavior. The quick tempered G-Unit defector has almost made it second nature to raise eyebrows throughout his career, so when he dropped the cover for his upcoming Interscope album Jesus Piece, I wasn’t surprised. A stained glass image depicting Jesus in all his imaginary ratchet-ness is a move only Game would dare attempt without it being labeled or viewed as corny but entertaining instead. The “Celebration” rapper may have ruffled some feathers, but the term sacrilegious should be reserved for a more serious offense.

By no means does this fall under him expressing his artistic expression, either (maybe him customizing his Ferrari F430 in leather for $200K earlier this year was). Instead of his artistic expression, maybe the depths of Game’s unorthodox way of buzz-building should be explored. More of a fan to his music than antics, one must acknowledge the point that overall these less-than-tasteful tactics do draw attention to his main focus, music. We all know Christ isn’t “ridin’ that 5ive” or enjoying some of Cali’s unofficial state flower. But of course Jayceon would love for us to be bickering, debating or discussing the possibility.

Wake up and smell the marketing/advertising — this is all a part of his deliberate and diabolical scheme to draw attention to his follow up to last year’s The R.E.D. Album. Let’s not forget that this is the same MC who incriminated himself just a few months back when he “Worldstar’d” himself assaulting fellow California rapper 40 Glocc at a party in Los Angeles, which solidified his spot on blogs and music websites for weeks to come. Fortunately, none of his playing with fire has blown up in his face…yet. Controversy is just something that the multi-platinum rap star has been able to thrive and capitalize from. That’s just how the game goes.
