Dr. Dre Praises Game's

Game unleashes a text that Dr. Dre sent him praising his fifth album.

Game may not have collaborated with Dr. Dre on his upcoming album Jesus Piece, but he's got the Doc's stamp of approval.

Chuck Taylor took to Twitter this weekend to post a screenshot from his phone where the N.W.A. veteran praised the LP.

"Your album is Dope," wrote Dre. "The song with the D'Angelo sample ['All That'] is fuckin Crazy. Great job. Congratulations!!!!" Game responded with a few words of appreciation: "Couldn't do it without you Doc. Compton !!!"

Jesus Piece, which marks the completion of Game's contract with Interscope Records, features guest appearances from a slew of artists including Kanye West, Common, Jamie Foxx and more.

    Really wanted this to be a great album. But it wasn't put together well. I think he will need Dr. Dre or EP to get back to where he should be. I hope he puts together a come back asap. If not I think it will be over for him. Features way to many and the wrong guys anyway. Kendrick was cool tho.. Think Xzibit, Snoop or King T next time. Real Rappers.

    Doc, you sure the album's Dope man?? We all thought that you done lost your taste after hearing the useless track "New Day" you gave me, but liking Jesus Piece confirms it. I fear for Detox man, seriously, it better not sound like some FloRida music man.

    Jesus Piece is more of a tribute to Games undying admiration of longtime peer Kanye West, who plays an omnipresent role on the album sonically. Game often raps like him With uncomfortable accuracy on the title track where West has a minor featured role. From the adlibs and even the use of obscure church samples Game trades his brash gangsterism for introspection for much of the album. Much of his inner thoughts reveal a strange jealousy and respect for Dr.Dres new protg, and breakout star of 2012, Kendrick Lamar (Felt [Dr. Dre] shitted on me for Kendrick, [So I] recorded diss records) who Game mentions in the same breath of other successes such as Eminem and Snoop Dogg and also appears on the album with a show stealing verse.

    The biggest problem with Game is he lacks confidence in himself. Heres another good album that he cant completely take credit for. The tracklist itself can easily be mistaken for a DJ Khaled release. How can the listener connect with you when youre hiding behind features? Also, he lacks lyrical identity. At any given moment, he morphs into your favorite rapper and loses himself. This has always been a huge issue for the Compton representer, but now being 5 albums in, he comes off as the kid that keeps repeating the 4th grade for the same mistakes; he should just know better by now.

      it's true, on a few of these songs I had to wonder if it was even him rapping or the feature! I listened to most of it and it sounded good, but yeah, not necessarily because of Game... Oh, and his infamous name drops have not stopped!

    the album is boring the best song is with pusha-t I thought this album would be a concept album about his conflictions in life I was wrong the title is just for shock value the lyrics are weak just name dropping clothes cars and chick shoes or he is catching a body that's it.The best part of the album is the title.game been biteing a lot of rappers flows and song patterns yo some of the weak beats and hooks sound like something French Montana would do.game needs to step up his vocabulary also.game cant hold his own on a album at all is game a true solo artist? NO he is more like a featured artist but the funny thing is nobody features him.

    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.
    • Anonymous
      yep totally agree, k-dot and nas for hip hop 2012
    • Westside
      Totally agree with anonymous. Best instrumental of jesus piece is on the "Celebration" track, allmost every else tracks instrumental sounds like 10 second loop. Also u can see that the "dead people" track is way older than the others, cause it sounds like old Game, not like the other bullshit tracks on da album.
    • haha
      Fucking haters! Just appreciate the good music and stop with the hate. #50Stans SMH

    He is really gassing him because this album is trash. Only the beats bang real hard. Lol I laugh at people who say this is dope for him. Now everyone is going to dick ride this even more cause of Big Ol Dre. Im a real fan and I tell it like it is. The Game lyrically fell the fuck off. And im a big fan of Game for yearss!! back when he use to call himself Chuck Taylor. Listen to his old music and this and he sound like two different people. Its really frighting. Damn am I the only one hearing this shit? A big disappointment. And he needs to stop taking other peoples flows like Kanye..ect And changing his voice up. Come on Game cut it out with all the gimmicks you can do much better than this. Get back on your West Coast Compton shit. Cause when I listen to this I dont know where you from any more. Ny maybe? or down south? SMH

    The album sure is much better than expected! Not as good as The Documentary, but almost as good as Doctor's Advocate. RED Album sucked, only one or two good songs (Ricky, for example).
