Aubrey don’t write rhymes, he writes checks…
Drake Pays Former Rapper $100,000 For Borrowed Lines
Apparently Drake’s opening lines on YG’s “Who Do You Love” track sound STRIKINGLY similar to a portion of a verse from Rappin’ 4-Tay’s 1994 track “Playaz Club.” 4-Tay never filed a formal lawsuit, but today he’s enjoying some Views From The 6-figure settlement in exchange for his throwback lines. Via TMZ:
Drake just paid a ton of respect to Rappin’ 4-Tay — in the form of cold, hard cash — to settle a beef in which 4-Tay claimed Drizzy jacked his rhymes.
4-Tay first put Drake on blast when YG’s hit “Who Do You Love” came out. Drake drops lyrics on the song that are clearly ripped straight from 4-Tay’s 1994 hit “Playaz Club.”
4-Tay was offended Drake didn’t give him credit on the song. No lawsuit was ever filed, but sources close to the situation tell us a very lucrative agreement was reached.
4-Tay’s manager tells TMZ … Drake’s record label agreed to pay 4-Tay $100,000 for “borrowing” the lines.
Not shockingly … 4-Tay tells us he’s no longer offended.
Let’s face it, $100,000 is chump change to Drizzy and the label. At least he was able to tiptoe around a messy lawsuit with this one…but it may behoove Drake to only rap his own emo-rhymes from here on out.
