The Game: Chi-Town's Too Gangsta for Me ... They're Shooting Everyone

EXCLUSIVE

The Game believes he's dodging real bullets in Chicago now that a judge has granted his request to postpone a court hearing.

According to legal docs, the rapper asked the judge to push a June 16 hearing for his sexual assault lawsuit in Illinois. He cited a massive outbreak of violence over Memorial Day weekend in the city ... where about 70 people were shot and 6 died.

Game thinks it's likely there will be a bunch of revenge shootings, and fears he could be caught in the crossfire. Priscilla Rainey, who filed the suit against Game, didn't oppose his request.

The judge signed off, but hasn't set a new date yet.

The trial's set to start in November, unless Game and Rainey reach a settlement.
