West Coast rapper Game's long-awaited R.E.D. Album has suffered an unauthorized leak, prompting the Interscope Records artist to ask his fans to refrain from downloading the project in its entirety.
Game reminded fans his latest slew of new music should keep them satisfied until the LP hits retail outlets next week.
"I see tracks off R.E.D. leaking.... Lotta love coming my way. Thanks, but if if u see FULL album don't download ! We only gotta another week," he tweeted August 16th.
"From "Purp & Patron" to "Hoodmorning" to "Daytona 500" yall should have enough music to hold yall over for another week. #DoNotBootlegRED"
"If you listen to "Daytona 500" 10 times inna row it will be next Tuesday when u done ha ha" (Game's Twitter)
The latest new track to leak from his album features fellow West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar.

With music leaks common these days, Def Jam's Director of Digital Marketing Jycorri Robinson recently revealed how the label kept Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne LP leak-free.
"Kanye and Jay are just very tight with the music," he explained in an interview "Even so far as to where they've been, Kanye and Jay have been at every listening session, every event, that there has been and that's because they're holding that music so tight to them. There hasn't been [any] copies floating around the [Def Jam] office 'cause that sh*t is in a vault. They just took it back to the old school, man. They recorded the entire album together; no verses emailed back and forth. It's just tight eyes on it, only one or two people having access to it." (XXL Mag)
The R.E.D. Album hits retail outlets Tuesday, August 23rd.
