Forums - Gaming Discussion - GTA 5: Rapper Wants Game Recalled Over Track Inclusion

Rapper Daz Dillinger has sent Rockstar a cease and desist letter, after accusing the developer of using his music in Grand Theft Auto V without paying him.

TMZ reports that Dillinger's tracks "C-Walk" and "Nothin' But the Cavi Hit" are included in the game, despite Daz having turned down Rockstar's "offensively low offer of $4,271.00 for both songs."

As a result, the ex-member of Dogg Pound has issued both Rockstar and publisher Take-Two an ultimatum: Make him a better offer, or recall and destroy all unsold copies of the game.

Speaking to TMZ, Dillinger said the move as about "respecting an artist's work. Rockstar didn't do that here and I can't let them get away with it."

He's given Rockstar 14 days to respond; as soon as it does, we'll update the story.

This guy, if he chooses not to accept the money for whatever reason, could be behind the greatest recall in gaming history? I mean seriously, heads will roll lol

What a fucking moron. Not only that, but games nowadays can be patched live on consoles.



Rockstar will probably offer him 8-10k to shut up.

good luck recalling 20+ million copies.

According to his name he is a gangsta-rappa.A man ignoring laws.

Why is such a guy so sensitive when others does not respect laws?

imo he can destroy all remaining gta5 copies as gta music is usually crap.
C-songs from A star or A songs from C Stars.240 songs and nothing new or interessting to be found that is worth listening to it twice(even the lousy gta4 music was better and had with el maldades a good song i didn't knew) .Only few can do such a bad job.
Hardly can't wait for crappy gta6 music.

Now that will put him on the map

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Hard to believe that Rockstar would make a mistake like that.. A manager of the artist probably agreed to the 4K and is scared of losing his job by telling the truth
