The Game: Why Chevy Took My Corvette Away

The Game was surrounded by a bunch of BADASS cars in Hollywood yesterday ... but not one of the rides was his tricked out Corvette ... because that whip was repossessed a few days ago ... TMZ has learned.

Game tells TMZ he leased the Corvette roughly three years ago ... but he was on tour when the lease expired and was unable to return it.

But a few days ago, after Game returned home, repo men came to the house and took the car away. Sources connected to the situation tell us Game was home at the time and was "cooperative" during the hand-off.

Game doesn't seem too bothered by the situation ... telling us, "I got SO many whips!"
