The Game Says Rick James Was Mistaken For Jesus
(CBS Local) After all the controversy surrounding The Game's Jesus Piece album art, the outspoken rapper chalks up the chatter to one big misunderstanding. It is not a picture of gangster Jesus on the cover, Game recently explained, but "Super Freak" singer Rick James "in Jesus' clothes."
"I'm a big fan of Rick James," The Game told Jenny Boom Boom from Hartford's 93.7. "I thought I would put him on my album cover and put a rag around his neck and put him in Jesus's clothes. Everybody thinks that's Jesus but that's Rick James. Why are you offended?"
While Game is known to be controversial and flex a sly sense of humor, he was making a greater point with this latest revelation. Find out what that was.
