Drake’s #1 Hit “Best I Ever Had” Turns Out To Be The Worst… PlayBoy Is Suing Him For Sampling Without Paying!!!

- By Bossip Staff

Drake’s EP “So Far Gone” dropped last year in September with the “Best I Ever Had” jawn on it and sold 232,847 copies in the first two months. Apparently, Mr. Drizzy Drake sampled “Fallin’ in Love” by Hamilton, Joe Frank and Dennison/Reynold and never once received permission. Now the owner of the song, Playboy Music, is suing him for copyright infringement…

DaYYuMM Drake!!!

The rapper’s #1 hit record “Best I Ever Had” is earning him more than just platinum plaques and will force him to face a possible court date now that Hugh Hefner’s signature company has filed a copyright infringement complaint against him. Playboy says that Drake and the other defendants quote:
“Knew or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording was protected by copyright…” and that “each Defendant continues to infringe upon Plaintiff’s rights in and to the copyrighted sound recording.”

    Why is this news? Everybody know that that’s all rappers and hip hop mo fo’s do is sample. They are the most non creative people in teh industry! I too am surprised this isn’t happening at least once or twice a week!!

    It really is a nice sample though. I heard the original on a mixtape. But I thought if you alter a song enough u can still use it without paying? I dunno.

  • Shawn of the Living

    I guess someone else like the original producer’s of the sampled song are “hating on Drake” too. Just b/c they want to be paid for their work.

    SMDH
