Daz Dillinger files a cease and desist letter against “GTA V” makers Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software.

Daz Dillinger recently filed a cease and desist letter against Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games, the makers of Grand Theft Auto 5, according to tmz.com.

“C-Walk” and “Nothin’ But the Cavi Hit,” which appear in the video game, were used after Daz reportedly turned down an “offensively low offer of $4,271.000 for both songs,” according to the letter, as per tmz.com.

Daz is demanding a better offer from the video game makers or a recall and destruction of all unsold copies of the video game, according to tmz.com.

Daz spoke with tmz.com about this.

“[It’s about] respecting an artist’s work,” Daz said to tmz.com. “Rockstar didn’t do that here and I can’t let them get away with it.”

Daz and his attorneys have provided Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive Software with 14 days to comply with demands or to provide an offer that they can agree upon.

Take-Two launched the new installment of the video game series in September and sales equaled more than $800 million worldwide in one day. Take-Two’s stock rose 1.3 percent the Thursday after the figures were announced, according to cnn.com. The company’s stock grew more than 60 percent this year. Grand Theft Auto V has sold more than 15 million copies to date.

“I believe this is bigger than any blockbuster,” Alan Lewis, vice president of corporate affairs and public relations for Take-Two said to cnn.com after the video game’s release. “This is the biggest entertainment day launch in the history of any entertainment medium.”

    rockstar should just come out with a update, and remove his songs from the game.

  2. Hip-Hop

    Rockstar should compensate Daz Dillenger since the game is making millions of $$$$$$$.

    These corporations will make you fight for what is right sometimes.
