Grand Theft Auto V Stole 1990s Rapper’s Music, Facing Lawsuit

According to TMZ, former Dogg Pound rapper Daz Dillinger says game makers Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games stole his music.
The rapper and his attorney fired off a cease and desist letter to the two companies asking them to pay up.
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.”
Dillinger wants the companies to make him a better offer or recall the games they already sold. Consider the game already sold more than 15 million copies and gross over a billion dollars in just three days.
Grand Theft Auto V has already broken seven Guinness World Records including Best-selling videogame in 24 hours, Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion, and Highest grossing videogame in 24 hours.
