Rapper "Daz Dillinger" is now suing Rockstar Games for reportedly using his music on Grand Theft Auto V without his permission. The rapper, Delmar Drew Arnaud, alleged that two of his unreleased tracks, entitled "C-Walk" and "Nothin' But the Cavi Hit," are used in the game.
According to TMZ, Arnaud previously refused a low offer of $4,271 made by publisher Take-Two Interactive Software for both songs to be included in the insanely popular game that sold more than 15 million copies.
Lawyer Kushner Carlson said that they are giving Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games fourteen days to comply with their demand for a better offer. "It's all about respecting an artist's work. Rockstar didn't do that here and I can't let them get away with it," the rapper said.
