Ex-member of the Dogg Pound, rapper Daz Dillinger, has demanded that Rockstar recall all unsold copies of Grand Theft Auto V and have them destroyed.
TMZ are reporting that a cease and desist letter has been sent to Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games as the tunes “C-Walk” and “Nothin’ But the Cavi Hit” are used in the game without permission.
The rapper says he turned down Rockstar’s “offensively low offer of $4,271.00 for both songs.”
Mr Dillinger has told TMZ that the case is about “respecting an artist’s work. Rockstar didn’t do that here and I can’t let them get away with it,” and has given Take Two fourteen days to comply with the order – or make the rapper a rather more generous offer for the use of his music.
If the tunes have been used without permission then Rockstar are in a rather tricky situation and it could prove to be rather expensive.
