Rapper The Game has premiered his new track "Murder" as part of his promotion for his upcoming LP "Jesus Piece". The star-studded single features two hip-hop greats Kendrick Lamar and Scarface rapping about other well-known faces in the music industry. "Murder" is the last part of The Game's "Sunday Service" promo where he promised to release something new every Sunday leading to his new album release.
In the new six-minute track, the West Coast rapper talks about dark topics such as the death of hip-hop legends Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur. He also blurts out lyrics about the untimely passing of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and John Lennon.
"Who the f**k killed Michael Jackson, his physician?/ He died slow in his music, you ain't really listen/ Now his daughter getting slapped by his sister and that's probably gonna kill their mama/ So I'm sorry Ms. Jackson, I'm sorry Ms. Houston/ Cissy, might shed a tear, but ain't no sissy 'cause Whitney's still with me/ And her death kinda hurt a ni**a," raps the 33-year-old artist.
"Murder" is a slow-paced, flute-driven track that presents a very smooth jive among the voices and rhymes of The Game, Lamar, and Scarface. The melodic rhythm and the haunting background vocals in the song also serve as a sort of balancer for the rather bitter and painful lyrics mentioned in the song.
The new deep and provocative track will not be included in "Jesus Piece" due to problems with sample clearances. However, fans can stream in online and have it as a digital download. "Jesus Piece" will hit the stores Tuesday, December 11.
