Police just pulled over rapper The Game in L.A. and searched his brand new Rolls Royce -- and Game is NOT happy ... claiming he was nabbed for DWB -- Driving While Black.
Game tells TMZ, police pulled him over for talking on his cellphone ... but he insists he wasn't. Game says he was ordered out of the car and police searched it without permission.
Game says officers were blunt ... if he didn't let them search the car, they'd arrest him.
According to the rapper, once all was said and done -- and the officers came up empty -- they cited him for expired tags and impounded the Rolls.
Our cop sources insist it had nothing to do with race -- claiming Game WAS a cell phone scofflaw ... and the search was a matter of protocol before impounding the car.
