Young Money superstar Drake reportedly has had to cough up some cash for an all-but-forgotten 90s hip-hop star. Drizzy made an appearance on YG‘s “Who Do You Love,” and on the song, Drake borrows lyrics from Rappin-4-Tay’s 1994 track “Playaz Club.” 4-Tay previously called out the YMCMB rapper for not giving him credit for taking his lyrics. But it looks like Drake has paid the Bay Area veteran a sum to settle things.
According to TMZ, the two reached a “very lucrative agreement.” 4-Tay’s manager says that Drake has agreed to pay $100,000 for using the lyrics.

Rappin-4-Tay’s lines from “Playaz Club:” “I got a h- 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.”
Drake’s “Who Do You Love” verse: “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, n—a, thought I told you / If you a player in the game, this should hold you / And man, shout my n—a 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.”
