Drake has handed over $100,000 (£58,824) to fellow MC Rappin' 4-Tay to settle a dispute over the lyrics to his recent track Who Do You Love?. 4-Tay took issue with Drake's opening bars of the song, a collaboration with rapper YG, which was released earlier this year (14), claiming they were significantly similar to rhymes on his 1994 hit Playaz Club. 4-Tay called the Canadian hitmaker out in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "New Song w/ (with) @YG Feat @Drake In This Song Drake Copys (sic) My Lyrics & Lines From My PlayazClub Song & Pays No Homage! ???". He didn't file a legal action, but according to 4-Tay's manager, Drake has since reached out to the hip-hop veteran to make amends by paying $100,000 for "borrowing" the lines, reports TMZ.com.
