U.S. rapper calls for all unsold copies of Grand Theft Auto V to be recalled and destroyed

A rapper from the U.S. has sent a cease and desist letter to Rockstar North, accusing them of stealing his songs and demanding that all unsold copies of their latest blockbuster, Grand Theft Auto V, be recalled and destroyed.

Grand-Theft-Auto-5

Daz Dillinger, a rapper from the United States, told TMZ that he was approached by the games developer for the rights to his songs “C-Walk” and “Nothing’ but the Cavi’ Hit”, but declined their request because he considered their offer of $4,721 to be “offensively low”.

It seems that both of the songs somehow managed to work their way into the game anyway and Dillinger is now demanding that all unsold copies of the game be recalled and destroyed, after sending the games developer a cease and desist letter.

He told gossip website 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.”

Grand Theft Auto V has been an extraordinary success for Rockstar, grossing $1 billion in just three days and earning the developer seven Guinness World Records. The developer will likely make a statement soon.
