Rappin.304.jpg

(AllHipHop News) The most Googled rapper may have to search for an explanation soon after veteran California MC Rappin’ 4-Tay accused Drake of stealing his lyrics. According to Tay, Drake pilfered lyrics from Tay’s song “Playaz Club” for his verse on YG’s “Who Do You Love”.

The majority of Drake’s “Who Do You Love” verse is original lyrics but there are quite a few that bare an uncanny resemblance to the lyrics on Tray’s “Playaz Club”:

Drake on “Who Do You Love”

She got a buddy name OJB and now you know the deal
We turnt up in the studio late night
That’s why the songs that you hear are comin’ real tight
OVO crew, n*gga, thought I told you
If you a player in the game, this should hold you
And man shout my n*gga Game he just rolled through
Eatin’ crab out in Malibu with no boo
A lot of fools puttin’ salt in the game
Until these women get the notion that they runnin’ the game

Rappin' 4-Tay on “Playaz Club”

I got a h*e named Real de Real
She got a buddy named SP 12, now, you know the deal
We getz freaky in the studio late night
That’s why the beats that you hear are comin’ 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, huh

Tay’s “Playaz Club” was released on his 1994 album Don’t Fight The Feeling. The West Coast legend made his allegation of Drake’s stealing ways known on his personal Twitter account and even attempted to contact Drake through the social media platform:

I recognized that the first time I heard Drakes track. But real talk everyone bites/samples/loops everyone today. I think its just a matter of respect to acknowledge it when you do it. Then its not biting its really giving props. But rappers did that back in the day when there was album covers and cd's. Now with digital downloads how you gonna thank a rapper for inspiration and swooping a few bars from? On your face book site? Tweet a comment nobody ever see's 5 mins after its tweeted.

The difference is a matter of plagarism and imitation (just like in art). Eminem at most has imitated other styles of rap, you never see him plagarize lyrics or try to work out the patterns into his bars.

 

In Drake's case, this is plagarism, not imitation, and I don't have respect for it, even if everyone else is doing it (which I would challenge). I think other rappers who have been inspired and have mimiced styles are imitating. Again, this is different than straight up working off of someone else's bars and trying to pass them off as your own. That's plagarism.

Georgia hit it on the head

 

THIS IS HIP HOP. He was paying homage. Its for the people who already know about it.

 

Just like I might say " Man i stay on point like icicles". Jay does it with Big, guys do it with Pac. Guys do it with Jay.

 

 

 

 

But I understand why 4 Tay would want this publicity.

4 tay wants the respect from drake. drake should be a man and say " yeah my [expletive], i took 4 tay players club song and put it into mine, hes an artist i used to listen to blah blah, etc""

Rappers may imitate a line or two... even use a hook on a popular song... They don't use this much of somebody else's [expletive] lol.

Huh?

 

 

Wen did u start REALLY listening to hip hop...bc as long as I've heard it ...people use lines from others

 

 

Hip hop isn't only about dope original lyrics.

 

Hip Hop is a culture and lifestyle and thats the part I think many people forget about. 

 

 

Hip Hop is far from dead, only outsiders and old timers say [expletive] like that

Its a Bay sing and Tay is a Bay OG...its [expletive]ing obvious

 

he flipped that verse in respect to the BAY

 

 

But bc of Drake's background, many, myself included feel like he is not authentic. He can flow tho and this isn't biting

So its a culture of plagarism and not giving respect when taking other peoples work.

 

 

Got it..

Yes

Hip hop was born from poor kids not having instruments, looping other people's music.
Listen to hip hop.
Biggie made going back to Cali. That was LL's song. Was Biggie NOT hip hop?

Like I said 4 Tay has been relevant in about 20 years and saw this as a perfect chance to be talked about.

It's not like a YG song means anything to an artist in Drake's position.
It was a Bay Area beat and Players Club is a West Coast classic.
If anything, Drake is showing how much he is in tune with hip hop history.
Plagiarism is the guy who raps Em or Nas in a cypher and acts like its his own.

Em does it
Jay
Nas
Pac

All the greats of my era. Kendrick does it. Everyone does it.
It's part of hip hop

At least 1/3 of snoops entire first album is old Slic Rick lines. Honestly no biggie. 4Tays playaz club was like 20 years ago. And 4Tay sampled the music from "Private Number" by Judy Clay and William Bell. So in his opinion its ok to steal entire samples of beats/music someone else created but its wrong to jack a few lyrical bars because thats his intellectual property? Funny.
