Rapper claims Rockstar didn’t obtain permission to use his songs in GTA V

Rapper claims GTA V stole his songs.

Rockstar’s latest crime game, Grand Theft Auto V is packed with music, however one artist has come forth stating that the company was not given permission to use his in the game.

This artist, a rapper by the name of Daz Dillinger, has two songs that appear in the game. These are “C-Walk” and “Nothin’ But the Cavi Hit”.

According to Dillinger (our friends at Kotaku mention that it seems unclear if the artist actually owns the rights to these songs), he was offered $4,271 for the songs, but turned it down. He now either wants a better offer or for every unsold copy of the game to be destroyed.

He claims that the lawsuit is about “respecting an artist’s work,” which he states, “Rockstar didn’t do that here and I can’t let them get away with it.” 

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

What do you think of the lawsuit?
