Drake Pays Rapper $100K For Borrowed Lyrics


Drake had to shell out $100K to end a copyright case with rapper 4-Tay. Drake added a few borrowed lyrics from the fellow rapper for his verse in YG's "Who Do You Love.' Tay wasn't ok with the lyrics being in the song without some type of homage as to where the lyrics came from. Drake raps:

I got a shorty name Texas and She got a buddy name Young JB and now you know the deal We turnt up in the studio late night That's why the songs that you hear are comin' real tight

4-Tay's verse in his 1994 single "Playaz Club" went:

I got a ho named Reel-to-Reel She got a buddy named SP 12, now you know the deal We gets freaky in the studio late night That's why the beats that you hear are coming real tight

4-Tay called out Drake on his Twitter and asked Drake to DM him:  

According to TMZ Drake's label came to an agreement with the rapper:

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.
