Drake Apparently Paid Rappin' 4-Tay $100k For Interpolating His Lyrics

Drake has reportedly paid Rappin' 4-Tay $100,000 after being called out for referencing his lyrics on "Who Do You Love?" Rappers are constantly quoting one another in songs. Sometimes it's enough to justify a writing credit, while other times its simply a subtle nod or easter egg to those who know the original source. Drake's verse on YG's "Who Do You Love" certainly falls into the latter category, though Rappin 4-Tay-- the emcee Drizzy interpolates on the verse --felt he should have been compensated. 4-Tay called Drake out on Twitter for the lack of credit, and it seems the two rappers have now come to an out-of-court agreement. According to TMZ, Drizzy has shelled out $100,000 to 4-Tay for using elements of his verse from the 1994 record "Playaz Club" You can take a look at the similarities in the lyrics here. Do you think 4-Tay deserves a payday? Or was Drake's subtle shout out a blessing in itself?
