There is a chance that the remaining unsold copies of Rockstar Games latest title Grand Theft Auto V could be recalled.

According to TMZ Daz Dillinger, rapper/producer;  most popular for being a part of Snoop Dogg’s Dogg Pound group back when they all were a part of the legendary Death Row Records is threatening to take legal action against Rockstar for putting his music out without his permission in GTA V.

In a letter to Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games Daz and his attorney, Kushner Carlson say the songs “C-Walk” and “Nothin’ But the Cavi Hit” were used even though he turned down what was the initial offer by the company that according to him was an  “offensively low offer of $4,271 for both songs.”

Now Daz is demanding that they offer him better compensation for his work or destroy and recall all said unsold copies and is giving them 14 days to comply.

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

Here’s a video showcasing a sample of one of the songs “C-Walk”:
