Daz Dillinger Accuses 'Grand Theft Auto V' of Stealing His Beats
Published Oct 11, 2013Rapper, producer and Dogg Pound member Daz Dillinger is the latest person to take issue with the running and gunning videogame Grand Theft Auto V, accusing its makers of using his music without his permission.
According to TMZ, Dillinger claims the game's makers used "C-Walk" and "Nothin' But the Cavi Hit," two songs he produced, on the game's soundtrack without his permission.
The performer claims that the videogame makers initially contacted him, asking to use his music. He says they offered the "offensively low" price of $4,271. He turned them down, but they used his music anyway.
Now, his lawyers are demanding a better offer. Otherwise, they want Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games to "recall and destroy all unsold copies of the game." Even if they miraculously decided to do something like that, there are already plenty of copies out there already — it's the highest selling game of all time.
Dillinger has given GTA V's makers 14 days to respond to his demands.
TMZ has some gameplay footage featuring "C-Walk," which you can view below.
