Drake has been accused of copying a Bay Area rapper’s lyrics.
MC Rappin’ 4-Tay is not impressed that Drake swiped his lyrics without giving him credit. 4-Tay believes Drizzy’s opening bars on YG’s latest single Who Do You Love is very similar to his lines in Playaz Club.
4-Tay went on Twitter and called out Drake on Monday. He tweeted, “New Song w/ @YG Feat @Drake In This Song Drake Copys My Lyrics & Lines From My PlayazClub Song & Pays No Homage! ???”
The similarities in Drake’s lyrics and the ones from 4-Tay’s 1994 song are pretty apparent. The Bay Area rapper’s lines 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/ Somethin’ to roll to, somethin’ to stroll to/ If you’s a playa in the game this will hold you/ Mo money mo money for the bank roll/ Stick to the script don’t slip in the nine-fo/ A lot of fools put salt in the game/ Till when these women get the notion that they runnin’ the game.”
Drake’s lyrics are:
“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/ OVO crew, n***a, thought I told you/ If you a player in the game, this should hold you/ And man shout my n***a/ Game he just rolled through/ Eatin’ crab out in Malibu at Nobu/ A lot of fools puttin’ salt in the game/ Until these women get the notion that they runnin’ the game.”
Listen to both songs below and judge for yourself.
