Drake and Rappin’ 4-Tay Talk About Putting Salt in the Game

Drake had a busy week, unveiling the name of his next album and being nominated for this year’s Polaris Music Prize. But he also had to deal with another online rap beef: Rappin’ 4-Tay has accused Drake’s OVO label of plagiarizing lyrics from Rappin’ 4-Tay’s 1994 single ‘Playaz Club’ when writing their verse for YG’s track ‘Who Do You Love’ by OVO rapper. According to reports by TMZ, however, the conflict appears to have been resolved: his label disbursed $100,000 to Rappin 4-Tay for his words on YG’s track ‘Who Do You Love’ by OVO rapper OVO rapper Drake has since paid his label out to Rappin 4-Tay for his lyrics on YG’s track ‘Who Do You Love’ by paying out $100k to 4-Tay.

Hip-hop artists must tread a fine line between borrowing lyrics as an homage and directly plagiarizing them; Jay Z is often accused of doing just the latter with Biggie’s rhymes while Drake may just be plain copying them directly – you can listen to both tracks below for yourself!
