The Game, who was baptized last year, says he first decided to make the change after observing a trend of other artists using the number five in their own album titles.
"Trey Songz came with his album Chapter V, and of course 50 Cent had 5 (Murder by Numbers), I just felt like I should jump off that wagon," he said in an interview with Vibe.
The rapper had recorded a song called "Jesus Piece" with Kanye West that inspired him to move in a new direction.
"So I went back into the studio and started doing songs that leaned more towards the title. I think people gon’ appreciate the concept once they hear the music," he said.
As the concept of a "Jesus piece" implies, Game says his album will blend religious and street values.
