New rappers “borrowing” lines from raps of days past has become a common practice, but this blog-like aggregation of copywritten material doesn’t always go over well with the originators.
“New Song w/ @YG Feat @Drake In This Song Drake Copys My Lyrics & Lines From My PlayazClub Song & Pays No Homage! ???,” 4-Tay tweeted on Monday with a YouTube link to YG’s song.

Drake spits, “I gotta 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 coming real tight.”
4-Tay’s rhymes are, “I gotta hoe 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 the why the beats that you hear coming real tight.”
Drake is certainly not the first rapper to be found guilty of “lyrical aggregation,” but most will find some way to reference the line’s originator. However, in an increasingly litigious musical landscape this practice is being policed a little closer. Rick Ross just filed suit against LMFAO for interpolating his “everyday I’m Hustlin” hook for their hit “Party Rock Anthem.”
Should Drake have cleared the use of this rhyme or at least gave Rappin 4-Tay a shout out in the verse?
