Game Leaks Two Spiritual Tracks, ‘HVN4AGNGSTA’ and ‘Hallelujah’
Rapper Game must have been slapped by the Holy Ghost on Sunday (Nov. 18) because he leaked not one but two spiritual bangers as part of his weekly music series "Sunday Service." The first one is 'HVN4AGNGSTA' featuring Master P and the other is the Jamie Foxx-assisted 'Hallelujah.'
The DJ Premier-blessed banger 'HVN4GNGSTA' is a reworking of Master P's 1997 classic song 'Is There a Heaven 4 a Gangsta,' with the No Limit rapper yelling his famous "Uungh!" on the chorus. On the song, Game reflects on his previous life as a street hustler to now being a successful rap artist. "Got on chains like a slave in the deep south / Could’ve been Michael Jordan but I took the Master P route / Had to take the street route / N----s know what we about," he raps.
Meanwhile, Master P, offers his sagely views of the world rapping, "And the little homies died over Twitter beef / Black president, n----s should consider peace / It’s a dirty game n---- when you got cash / B----es don’t holla when the n---- on his a--."
On the soulful 'Hallelujah,' producer Jake One blesses the track with stirring organ riffs and a grooving beat, while Jamie Foxx and a gospel choir sings "Hallelujah" on the chorus. Game spits conflicting rhymes about his balancing act of living in the path of righteousness and ratchet-ness. "I know we in church, and the way that I’m thinking is wrong / But inside the Bible is the perfect way to sneak my phone," he raps, adding, "I wanna live righteous and you know I love Jesus / But you can’t catch the holy ghost in the Prius."
Both 'HVN4GNGSTA' and 'Hallelujah' are fantastic songs which should help build anticipation for Game's upcoming album, 'Jesus Piece,' which hits stores Dec. 11.
