With a number of big names already on board, Nicki is the last “piece” to the puzzle.
Game is known for pulling out all the stops when it comes to guest appearances on his albums and his latest record will be no different. The Compton rapper has already lined up artists like Kanye West, Chris Brown and Scarface for cameos on Jesus Piece, and he's in the process of reeling in one more big fish for the project: Nicki Minaj.
In an interview with Rap-Up TV, Jayceon said he has a particular track set aside for a Nicki Minaj verse that he expects any day now.
"We got in touch and she said she’ll kill it, but she’s doing major work right now, making major money," he said.
The song already features a hook by Trey Songz and ties into the album's theme of balancing religious and hood influences.
"It's basically about walking out of the backdoor of church and falling into the front door of a strip club," Game said. "I want to get the Word and I want my belief to be in God, but at the same time, I want to see that ass clap.”
As for Nicki's day job at American Idol and the drama surrounding her tension with Mariah Carey, Game praised both artists and said that he hopes they will reconcile.
"Two amazing women should be able to get along and I’d love to see that happen sooner rather than later,” he said.
Jesus Piece is scheduled to hit stores December 11. The album art, which depicts a black Jesus wearing a red bandana and a gold Jesus piece chain, was released over the weekend.
