On another note Rockstar also could have paid off the record label, and not the guy. In which case he's going to have to go to the Record Label and settle things with them, but if I was in his shoes first thing I would do is go after Rockstar. The last thing I would want is the Record Label I work with to go behind my back like that.
Well, anyone wants to re-watch the full credits at the end of the game? I bet R* wrote something like COURTESY OF WHATEVER RECORDS.
Even if they have it in the credits, doesn't mean they actually got the permission. If, somewhere along the way, someone screwed up and stamped "APPROVED" on the song details, and that's why it got in without approval, then everything else will be processed like normal, including credits.

For those attacking the guy, don't even think of shedding a tear or getting enraged when someone steals your work and doesn't give you any form of compensation for it.
Anyone with common sense knows Rockstar is in the wrong here.
K, noted since its already happened with a couple of my research articles and I don't give a s***. So this rapper can cram it.
Did you copyright your articles? No? Then it's definitely not the same.
He went through the time and effort to ensure that he and only he could take credit for his work, and as such, if anyone wanted to use it, they'd have to get his permission. Since he deliberately told them no and they still used his work anyways, he does have a case and a good reason to get upset.
