Rockstar served cease and desist letter by rapper over GTA 5 song use

New, 125 comments

Rockstar is at the receiving end of a cease and desist letter sent by rapper Daz Dillinger over the use of two songs featured in Grand Theft Auto 5, TMZ reports.

Dillinger sent publisher Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games the notice through his attorney, demanding all copies of GTA 5 be recalled over use of his songs "C-Walk" and "Nothin' but the Cavi Hit." This comes despite reportedly turning down an offer of $4,271 for both songs.

The artist is asking Rockstar to either recall and destroy all copies of the game or offer a larger sum of money. His lawyers have given the company 14 days to comply.

We've contacted Rockstar for comment and will update when more information is available.
