Daz Dillinger is demanding he gets his paper. The Dogg Pound rapper has issued a cease and desist letter to the makers of Grand Theft Auto V, claiming the video game illegally uses his music. 

Reports TMZ:

In the letter to Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games, Daz and his attorney say “C-Walk” and “Nothin’ But the Cavi Hit” are used in the record-setting game, even though Daz turned down the company’s “offensively low offer of $4,271.00 for both songs.”

Now, the ex-member of the legendary Dogg Pound is demanding they make him a better offer or — and this is a biggie — recall and destroy ALL unsold copies of the game.

Keep in mind … more than 15 million copies of GTA V have already sold — and there are probably just as many, if not more, sitting on store shelves right now.

Not to mention the riot such a recall would cause in the gaming community.

Daz tells TMZ this case is about “respecting an artist’s work. Rockstar didn’t do that here and I can’t let them get away with it.”

Daz and his attorneys at Kushner Carlson are giving the GTA V makers 14 days to comply with their demands … or strike a deal.

Seems like Daz has a legit case if the songs were really used without his consent. Interestingly, Tha Dogg Pound’s classic cut “What Would You Do” is heard in the game, but permission was granted for its use.

Let us know what you think of Daz’s moves in the comments.
