Is Jesus Piece Blasphemy or Artistic Expression?
I distinctly remember the controversy that Tupac’s cover for Makaveli caused. This is no different. We have to pray about this kind of stuff and the people that put it out. It’s getting annoying. Who standing up for Jesus?
The new CD drops on December 11th. Featured artists include Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa.
“I’m calling it Jesus Piece ’cause last year in August I got baptized and so I’ve been going to church, but I still been kinda doing me out here. I still love the strip club and I still smoke and drink. I’m faithful to my family, so I wanted to make an album where you could love God and be of God, but still get it poppin’ in your life.”
“I’m a Christian but I’m not ‘holier than thou.’ You can still have swag and be a Christian, you ain’t gotta wear a suit to church, you ain’t gotta take a bath in Holy water. You can still have your Ciroc in the club, it’s just a faith thing and making sure you try to do right. I’m still a father, I still smoke, I still rep Compton, I still might shoot dice or have a fight if I have to defend myself.”
