Has this album ever leaked in full? Only heard a couple tracks from it over the years.

Why is it, about every 3 to 4 months, this album gets brought up?  Time and time again, it's not real people!  Whomever started this whole rumor and made the fake track list and fake covers must be reveling in their net fame.

Someone's even gone to the extent of doing a wiki page for it with a tracklist and everything. Absolute bastards thought it was too good to be true.

What about the songs that got leaked?

Were they just 213 demo's/songs, they kinda sounded like early Warren G productions?

The tracks from this era, such as 'The Message Freestyle', 'True To The Game' and others, were recorded when Snoop Dogg was part of Foesum, and I believe DJ Glaze of the group produced them (but to be honest, most if not all of the beats are other artists' beats). 
My guess is that Warren G was around at this time as well (from 1990-1992).

Yes you are correct.  They were released on a Foesum compilation a few years ago too...can't remember what it was called off the top of my head...a 'from the vault' type release.  Had a bunch of old demos and stuff, had Foesum, Snoop, and the Twinz on some stuff before they blew up.  Snoop of course fucked with Foesum back in the day, hence his line in "Nuthin But A G Thang" - Perfection is perfected so i'ma let them understand.

lol, so many things wrong with that fake tracklist.  First obvious thing is there's a song on there called "Welcome to Death Row", yet the author of the article claims the album has the Future Shock logo on it, since that was the label's name back then.  It wasn't even known as Death Row at the time of the so called release.

The whole story was clearly fake from jump.  They're not going to randomly throw out some album with no singles or publicity ahead of creating an actual buzz for the album.

No. Whatever you have is a collection of the real songs that were on this tracklist. The tracklist was composed of real and fake song titles.

Does anyone know who put the cover together and where the artwork was from?
