Drake Pays Canadian Rapper $100,000 Over Copied Lyrics Dispute

Drake 052311

Drake has agreed to pay Canadian rapper Rappin' 4-Tay approximately $100,000 over claims he stole his lyrics.

In the dispute, Rappin' 4-Tay claims Drake copied lyrics from his 1994 track "Playaz Club" for his song "Who Do You Love?" The rapper did not file a formal lawsuit and claims he was offended that Drake did not credit him on the track.

A source told TMZ that, now that Drake and his record label have agreed to pay him, Rappin' 4-Tay "is no longer offended."

Drake revealed earlier this week that his upcoming fourth album will be called "Views From The 6," noting that he expects the album will be released in spring 2015.
