TMZ is reporting that Rapper Daz Dillinger, ex-member of Dogg Pound, says Rockstar Games tried to lowball him on tracks for Grand Theft Auto V then used them anyway. This according to a cease and desist letter Daz shot off to the makers of GTA V.
In the letter Daz and his attorney claim that "C-Walk" and "Nothin' But the Cavi Hit" are used in the game even though Daz turned down Rockstar's "offensively low offer of $4,271 for both songs."
In other art imitating life news, or maybe the other way around: Voice-actor Shawn Fonteno, the voice of Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V, was a rapper back in the 90s named Solo who knocked out Ice Cube. TMZ reports:
"Fonteno used to rap under the name Solo — and back in the day, he appeared in the documentary Beef 2 describing a fight with Ice Cube, in which he claims he knocked out the rapper over a business dispute and stole his chain.
Grand Theft Auto V has just crushed 7 Guinness World Records. Rockstar Games' latest goldmine is now the fastest selling video game in a 24-hour period and the "fastest entertainment property" to generate a billion bucks.
