We have a fresh new track for you all today, and although Kanye West doesn't have a verse on this track I still really like the song. The track is titled "Jesus Piece" and the beat is produced by Boi-1da & The Maven Boys and is straight up fire. Common and Game have solid verses, and last but not least the hook features a hungry Kanye saying over and over "...something like my Jesus piece Haaanhh" Album is out December 11th
