Back in January, veteran West Coast MC Rappin’ 4-Tay had accused Drake of stealing his lyrics on his verse on YG’s hit single ‘Who Do You Love‘.
He had claimed that Drizzy’s lines from the ‘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.”
Yesterday, TMZ reported that Drake’s and his label agreed to pay Rappin’ 4-Tay $100,000 for the borrowed lines. But in an interview with HHDX, 4-Tay and his manager, Herman Watson reveal that the settlement has been made but the actual sum is much higher.
“The real number is sky-high. That [$100,000] they reported is a low-ass number. TMZ made it seem like It was a one time thing to shut him up. There’s also royalties involved, and continuous payment. This is forever. This is a part of his ‘Playaz Club’ package from here on.”
“In all actuality, Baby and Slim, the Williams Brothers, those are my folks. They’re family and it’s family over everything with them. I’m speaking for myself as well as Cash Money Records when I say live and let live.”
