Rapper Daz Dillinger has fired off a cease and desist letter to the brains behind hit video game Grand Theft Auto V, accusing them of using his music without permission.

The hip-hop star claims he rejected Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software executives' "offensively low" offer of $4,271 (£2,847) for the use of his tracks C-Walk and Nothin' But the Cavi Hit in the game, but they allegedly ignored his wishes and included the tunes on Gta V anyway.

The former Tha Dogg Pound bandmember is now demanding the gaming bosses make him a better offer to settle the dispute in the next two weeks, or face having to recall more than 15 million copies of the game and destroy all existing unsold units.

He tells Tmz.com, "(This is about) respecting an artist's work. Rockstar didn't do that here and I can't let them get away with it."

Gta V broke records upon its release last month (Sep13), when it became the fastest-selling video game in history, passing the $500 million (£333 million) mark in just 24 hours. Worldwide sales went on to hit the $1 billion mark in just three days.
