Cypress Hill Backup Singer Says ‘GTA: San Andreas’ Stole His Life

    Here’s a weird, sorta music-related* story: Michael “Shagg” Washington is suing Rockstar games because he claims that the company stole his life story for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Washington claims he talked to game designers and answered a bunch of questions about his life, and was listed in the credits for the game. But when the game came out, he realized they basically “stole” his whole story. He’s looking for 1/4 of the profits, which works out to $250 million. Good luck dude. [Techdirt]
