Veteran West Coast MC Rappin’ 4-Tay has accused Drake of stealing his lyrics on his verse on YG’s latest single ‘Who Do You Love‘ which leaked on to the internet a few days ago.
The San Francisco rapper took to his Twitter to reveal that Drake’s opening lines on his ‘Who Do You Love’ verse picks up bars from the former’s song ‘Playaz Club‘. Rappin’ 4-Tay’s lyrics on the song go as follows:
“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.”
They do have striking resemblance to Drake’s verse on ‘Who Do You Love’ which kicks off like:
“I got a shorty named Texas Sin / 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 comin’ real tight.”
Rappin’ 4-Tay’s song ‘Playaz Club’ appeared on his Don’t Fight The Feelin’ album, which released in 1994.

Do you think Drake stole the lyrics or was he just paying homage?
