Daz Dillinger Claims Grand Theft Auto V Illegally Uses His Music
Daz Dillinger is demanding he gets his paper. The Dogg Pound rapper has issued a cease and desist letter to the makers of Grand Theft Auto V, claiming the video game illegally uses his music.
Reports TMZ: In the letter to Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games, Daz and his attorney say “C-Walk” and “Nothin’ But the Cavi Hit” are used in the record-setting game, even though Daz turned down the company’s “offensively low offer of $4,271.00 for both songs.” Now, the ex-member of the legendary Dogg Pound is demanding they make him a better offer or — and this is a biggie — recall and destroy ALL unsold copies of the game. Keep in mind … more than 15 million copies of GTA V have already sold — and there are probably just as many, if not more, sitting on store shelves right now. Not to mention the riot such a recall would cause in the gaming community. Daz tells TMZ this case is about “respecting an artist’s work. Rockstar didn’t do that here and I can’t let them get away with it.” Daz and his attorneys at Kushner Carlson are giving the GTA V makers 14 days to comply with their demands … or strike a deal.
