Drake has put his money where his rhymes are and paid off Bay Area rapper, Rappin’ 4-Tay, for reusing his rhymes on YG’s “Who Do You Love.”
The words in the song are not exactly the same, but after listening, you can tell that Drizzy simply swapped some of the words out and used 4-Tays full verse.
In 4-Tays verse he raps:
“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 comin’ real tight.”
Drakes verse uses similar rhymes:
“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.”
Tay was mad that Drake didn’t give him any credit on the song but didn’t go so far as to press charges against the Toronto rapper who has now come to him with a “lucrative agreement” according to TMZ. It seems as if Drake is keeping up with his “good guy” image and has paid 4-Tay $100,000 for “borrowing” the verse.
You have to give it to Drake, he even steals rhymes like a nice guy.
