Drake Pays $100k In Settlement For “Borrowing” Lyrics From 90s Track

The opening of Drake’s verse on YG’s “Who Do Ya Love” starts with a few bars from Bay Area artist 4-Tay’s 1994 track “Playaz Club.” Rapping the words line for line, it’s clearly an homage to the track, though Drizzy didn’t follow proper protocol in doing so – crediting and/or clearing the lines before using them. Luckily for him, though, he didn’t have to go through a long drawn out court process. Instead, Drake and 4-Tay settled outside of the courtroom for a cool $100k. Needless to say, 4-Tay has no more gripes.
