Drake Pays Rappin' 4-Tay For Using "Playaz Club" Lyrics On Y.G.'s "Who Do You Love"

Drake reportedly pays Rappin' 4-Tay $100,000.

Drake has reportedly settled conflict with Rappin' 4-Tay by paying the rapper for reusing his rhymes on a song, according to TMZ.

Drake borrows lyrics from 4-Tay's "Playaz Club" on YG's "Who Do You Love." When 4-Tay did not receive credit for the song, he criticized the YMCMB emcee. TMZ reports that the two parties reached a "very lucrative agreement." 

According to 4-Tay's manager, Drake's label has agreed to pay $100,000 for the lyrics. 

"4-Tay tells us he's no longer offended," TMZ reports.  

On "Playaz Club," Rappin' 4-Tay has the following lines. "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 / Something to roll to, something to stroll to / If you's a playa in the game, this will hold you / Mo' money, mo' money for the bank roll / Stick to the script, don't slip in the '94 / A lot of fools put salt in the game / To where these women get the notion that they running the game." 

On "Who Do You Love," Drake raps: 

"I got a shorty name Texas Syn / She got a buddy named 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 / OVO crew, nigga, thought I told you / If you a player in the game, this should hold you / And man, shout my nigga Game, he just rolled through / Eatin' crab out in Malibu at Nobu / A lot of fools puttin' salt in the game / Until these women get the notion that they runnin' the game."

    Huge song, lotta money at stake. Fuck the "love" pay me mine. Love woulda been "hop on this track OG" or "word to 4 Tay" after the line was said. Drake gets props for hittin him off tho. He coulda got on some bullshit like Jinya's Paw Birdman

    NO BITING ALLOWED How you youngsters claim hiphop and dont even adhere to the basic foundation of the genre/culture is comical.

    • R.Pgh

      paying homage is saying a popular line. What Drake did was steal an entire verse without every getting the 'ok' from 4Tay.

    Drake is such a pussy. What a biter. Soft lil punk. He gets shitted on by Katy perry, tennis players, tattoo artists, steals lyrics, sings like a puss, is overly emotional like a 12yr old girl, wears turtleneck sweaters like a homo, and he looks like a thumb with eyebrows. He needs to just go away so we can forget about him already.

      You're an idiot "P". If it was a shout out and Drake didn't do anything wrong, then why the fuck did he pay homeboy out? I know if I knew I didn't steal bars and was doing this so called "shout out", I would give any fucking body 100K.

    • p

    When I think about the realest rappers, Nas, BIG, and 50 come to mind. But you gotta put Drake up there. People always make the case that he's a "simp" or "soft"... But he tells the truth. He talks about what he knows, which is mostly love. But when he starts sending shots everybody calls him fake. If somebody was coming at you, would you just stand there? So he stole some lyrics? Everybody uses ghostwriters and steal over rappers flow - look at everyone copying Ma$e! Drake never claimed to be something he's not and continues to be on top of the game. Realest rapper out.

      ^^ seriously... and Drake didnt give 4tay shine, he bit his shit and gave no credit. I think Drake got off easy with $100K for biting a West Coast OG like that. And YG's partly to blame as well, for ALLOWING that kinda shit on his record.

    • Anonymous

      Both of you are idiots who are wrong about everything. Drake didn't give anyone shine and his rapping and music is average at best, trash at worst. Keeping it real and raps about relatable shit? You mean the same guy claiming to have start from the bottom and going through womens' purses? LOL FOH.

      Agreed man, he gave 4 Tay shine if anything lol but drake keeps it real and raps about real relatable shit, not too mention he can put together some nice ass music.

    drake is currently the greatest rapper alive. wayne is second, and tyga and young thug tie in for third. and whoever thinks differently can see me in the bronx, soundview projects apartment 23a. I'll be there with brass knuckles, leaning next to a baseball bat outside my door. come by and I'll teach you a lesson about dissing my main man, drake, because he's the shit.

    • drake runs rap

      whatever money drake decided to toss was a favor and nothing more; it's only fair. plus, its only right that the greatest rapper alive fairly compensates one of rap's oldest and ancient living relics just to shut him up.

    • SMFH

      I knew you were gay, but calling Aubrey your main man when he never even met you validates your homosexuality. You sound like a female. You're really gonna try to beat someone up because they don't share the same opinion as you? That's straight-up groupie behavior. Plus, you're just making up shit.

      Taking lines, or anything for that matter, is exactly like plagiarism, which could get you in major trouble. But I'm sure you guys didn't pay attention to that in school.

      Lol he only paid homage to 4 Tay because this was a new west coast song/movement from the Bay Area, it makes sense to do what he did, drake has bars for days he didn't HAVE to use those lines he did it methodically , just saying 4 Tay should have just taken the shine drake gave him and shut the fuck up, he's no legend like biggie or PAC don't compare those to him ever, Jay z has done more line stealing than ANYONE I know so stop ur bitching

    • Anonymous

      its not words. its the sequence and rhythm of said words. If what your trying to allude is that then no rapper, singer, speech writer, book writer, app coder , app programmer, or linguist of any kind should ever be paid.

    • R.Pgh

      There is a difference between paying homage and outright copying someone. Jay Z paid homage to Biggie with a line here and there. Drake stole an entire verse and changed a few names. It's the equivalent to a comedian stealing a joke from other comedian, then changing the names used in the punchline (ie Carlos Mencia).

      Never go full retard.

  • Ultimate_Ghost

    He didn't just "borrow" lines, he used MORE THAN HALF the man's verse!!! He used 10 out of 16 bars!!!! that's AT LEAST 75% (Just a guess I don't feel like doing actual math right now!)

    Ok, WTF is going on with this guy? He did the same with Dead Prez on Over didn't he? But man he majorly stole a bunch from this dude. He pretty much used it as an outline, but inserted a few of his things in it, with the format still the same. But to not even acknowledge it in the first place, that's stupid. Now I'm anxious to see who else he rips off.

      he paid alright. that dude basically ghostwrote Drake's verse in 89... died... and came back to collect. That also shows how far behind Drake fans are too.

    • R.Pgh

      I'm assuming in the 'he stole from Dead Prez' you are referring to "one thing bout music when it hits you feel no pain" line. Dead Prez took that line from the Bob Marley song "Trenchtown Rock". I guess we're splitting puss hairs here though, because Drake seems to bite shit left and right.

      No, Aubrey's not paying homage, he stealing lines. He's not remarkably talented and his music taste isn't that good.

    • drake runs rap

      he's not stealing them, professor smartass. drake is paying homage to those before him. in addition to being a remarkably talented emcee, drake also has great taste in music.

    Stop paying homage to these crabs and avoid the drama, Rakim has been bitten in over a thousand rhymes and he looks at it as honor and not a paycheck.

    • R.Pgh

      Taking a line here and there is different from taking a whole verse. Especially when you didn't contact the artist you're borrowing from ahead of time to make sure it's cool.

  • Not Impressed

    I never knew you could make money from another artist biting your lines. If that's the case, Jay-Z owes other rappers at least 100 million. I'm not impressed

    • Anonymous

      You talk a whole lot about what you don't know. Learn a copy right law or two. Its ok to steal a phrase and use the same words. Drake ole sawry self stole the rhythm, the cadence, and the rhyme scheme while sitting at home with a thesaurus trying to find bigger words to tell lies that sound true.
