"I have taken it upon myself to count all the name drops that The Game does on Jesus Piece. The Rules: Only names of famous individuals count, not references to brands, albums, songs or sports teams. Only verses from Game himself count, obviously. I used the iTunes deluxe version for the purposes of the count. The Results/Awards: Total Name Drops: 113 Name Drops per song: 7.53 Most Name Dropped Person: : Jay-Z, with 7 name drops. Honorable Mentions: 50 Cent with 5, Kanye with 5, Nas with 4, K. Dot with 4, 2Pac with 4, Dr Dre with 4 Best Historical Name Drop: Nelson Mandela Best Sports Name Drop: Specifically ending a song with "Let me end this song with a shout out to James Harden". Because Game, you clearly need to let people know that you are about to shout someone out, its not like you've been doing that for the whole album... Worst Name Drop: "Frank Ocean more of a man than you" Most Random Shoutout: Carlos Santana. Honorable Mentions: Bono, Avatar, John Wilkes Boothe, Usain Bolt.
All in all, it was a solid name dropping out from Game, especially since on so many songs he only had one verse because of all the guests so he has less time for the name-dropping. He covered a lot of territory on Jesus Piece. I believe "Can't Get Right" had the most name-drops per capita, so hopefully he can take that strong form and bring that same name-dropping fire to his next album."
[QUOTE="Swanogt19"][QUOTE="JML897"]Pitchfork were not big fans of this. http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/17294-vicious-lies-and-dangerous-rumors/ I kinda love it though. Descending is so f*cking good allmusic didn't it either and they loved Sir Lucious. I haven't checked out any of the leaks. Only caught Big Boi's performance on Jimmy Fallon on Saturday. Picking up the album regardless of reviews. This album is easily better than Sir Lucious.
Yeah, I was bumpin Sec.80 for months before I drifted off to other things, it's too early to tell if this album will be able to sustain a similar sort of replayability. Not too crazy about Poetic Justice and Compton, however everything else was great. AOTY contention is between this and R.A.P. Music for me. Also disappointing that it lacks appearances from other key TDE members like Q and Soul, instead we get Dre and Drake (albeit their good perfomances).
