Fans divided over religious imagery used on front cover
US rapper The Game has divided hip-hop fans with the cover of his new album ‘Jesus Piece’ – a black Jesus clad in gang affiliated clothing.
The image depicts a Christ-like figure wearing a bandana over his mouth, a gold chain around his neck and a tear drop tattoo under his eye. The Jesus figure is part of a stained glass window-like design decorated with marijuana leaves.
Fans have been left divided, however, as you can see from a selection of Tweets below:
The Game releases ‘Jesus Piece’ via Interscope on December 11.
