Hip-Hop Rumors: What Old School Rapper Accuses Drake Of Stealing Rhymes?


Well, Drake should know better. You can’t “sample” no old school rapper and not give him a shout out. Well, Rappin 4 Tay says that Drake took bits and pieces of his hit song and didn’t pay homage. Tay dropped a classic jam in the mid-90’s called “Playaz Club” and that is the song that people most associate with him. So, its understandable why he would feel this way and yet, I’m not sure how important this is in the grand scheme of things. Anyway, the Bay seems to hate Drake in general.

Check out how it breaks down.

Here is the “Playaz Club”

  • DaHomey6Deuce

    I see some young ass nuccas here dissing 4Tay..If your born after 1990 please STFU!..this dude on the same legendary status as E 40 Fonzarelli

    • Flea

      this new generation of young money dummies don’t pay homage to anyone but Chief Keef

      • southside4lyfe

        keef the new gucci

    • ZUBU

      Drake need to just to pay the sampling fees then the problem is resolved. If I recall correctly 4Tay like many of the Yay Area brothas would handle that shit on the street level. Now Drake know he ain’t built for that, so pay that man or never try to tour in the Yay again.

      We all heard the story about B.I.G. dissing E-40 and the goons snatched BIG up, then called E-40 like what you want us to do with homey. E-40 gave BIG a pass. 40 say he was at the crib chilling when them goons called, basically 40 didn’t have to get BIG the brothas in the Yay that love how he rep the Yay handled it for him.

    • KC The American Pimp

      Shout out to 4tay seen him in KO the other day. Im from Frisco and he not up there with 40 or even mac dre, but he is a Frisco fillmoe legend with more then one hit.

    • You Got Me Hott Out Here!!

      biatch said e40 foh

    • pauleyPee

      4-Tay is not anywhere near 40. “Playaz Club” is certainly a classic but again, he’s not on par with E-40… Conscious Daughters’ “Funky Expedition” and JT’s “Game Recognize Game” brought them massive exposure, but nobody would claim that their overall careers were on par with E-40’s… Of course, being from the bay and of a certain age, we revere the 1990s classics. But I’m not so caught up in the greatness of those times that I can’t see the forest from the trees… Bottom line is that Drake is killing right now and it’s not because he’s “biting”.

  • Havoc Wreaka III

    Used bump 4tay all the time then he went cold..lol

  • Reblogged this on PAULDAVYBLOGnews.

  • SSgt Williams

    He made it a hot line, he made it a hot song. When will artists realize this? People need Drake to mention there name in a song. Smh. Just because it worked for Migos doesn’t mean it’ll revitalize 4-Tay’s career.

    • southside4lyfe

      true but you cant just go around stilling niggaz shit because they song wasn’t hot. gotta pay homage.

      • SSgt Williams

        I’m pretty sure that was intentions? Then again who knows. Atleast that’s what I think. And that goes for any rapper who decides to recite a lyric. I hear it all the time and its obvious most times and what song its from.

      • MIIHP

        He didn’t bite a lyric, he bit almost a whole verse. I don’t mind someone using a lyric off a hit like Jay used to do to BIG. If you use as much as Drake did in this case, you should shout them out. Let people know where you got it from

    • matt meyer lansky

      ok ur really dumb. this rappin 4tay song was very popular when it came out. this song drake just put out will be poppin for 2 weeks in random clubs n then you will never hear it again. if 4tay never said anything no one would ever know that drake stole his lyrics because people forget history. thats the problem with people especially ones like you loll he made it a hot line i made it a hot song? 4tays song is 1000 times better and more classic than that bullshit track yg n drake just put out over that busted ass beat

    • Taihair Djehuty

      Back in the day, Drake would of been called a biter. The only thing worse than that back then, was talking about someone’s mother. Now these dudes get a pass for biting and if anyone calls them out, people call them haters and such. smh

      • pauleyPee

        Bullshi**. Niggas bit all of the time back in the day………… The 2nd verse from “Rapper’s Delight” wasn’t just a bite, it was a nigga reciting a rap out of another rapper’s rhyme book. So biting was way worse back then. And it was that way because you could steal somebody’s rhymes and nobody would ever know. If you steal a ni**a’s french fry nowadays somebody is going to blog about it.

      • Taihair Djehuty

        Dudes bit others back in the day, but if one got caught and called out, everyone be like “oh shit you biting?” And when you get called out, everyone wanna know how you gonna react. If you didn’t respond or your response was weak, you was a bitch. Might not be a career killer, but you were on notice. Now a days, you call someone out, whether it be for biting or if person A claims to be the King and person B wants to challenge that claim. If said person is popular, then the other person, person B, is usually proclaimed to be a hater. Drake has become untouchable because he is part of cash money and is moving major units. Drake could shit on someone’s grandmothers chest and everyone would be like “well why was she there and why you hating?”

    • Dan_Tebasco

      Playaz Club is better than anything Drake has ever made

  • hoeyuno

    Rappin 4 Tay a name I haven’t heard forever..I do see where he coming fro. Drake coulda mentioned him in the rap.

    • Dan_Tebasco

      Mostly known for his feature on Only God Can Judge Me by Tupac, Bay Legend though

  • Elayorx El

    Man, I’m seein A LOT of hate on here, in the form of OG’s from “bygone errors”, that are hatin on Drake just because he is getting it NOW. I’m starting to feel like it would not matter who was in that position, because the hate would be out of control in the same way. Shout out to 4-Tay, and all the other real ones from the Bay, and we still knock that real Hip-Hop from over there, but couldn’t it be considered paying homage off of the strength of him reusing the material? Does everything need a thorough explanation, including Cliff Notes? Many of your favorite artists have done it in the same fashion. Similar to how it was explained in a previous post, I ain’t from the, “Old-School”, and I ain’t from the, “New School”, I’m from the “Middle School”, cause that’s how I call it. Anyone saying Drake is not an MC, has some sort of personal gripe, and let me add, with no disrespect intended, him being a “Jew”, has nothing to do with his ability, or talent level, as that is a faith he grew up in, and I think still practices. If he is as inauthentic as many say, where is the overwhelming “objective” evidence to support such claims? Real always recognizes real, unless the other real is really good.

    • Caliwaver

      Great post!

      • Elayorx El

        Good lookin fam. I see the 360…lol

      • Caliwaver

        Yeah I’m a heavy waiver in the game. CaliWaver on Instagram.

    • Jayson C Williams

      So true bro! His producer was a fan of the song not drake lol. Misplaced hate! Drake I have to say isn’t my fav rapper but he’s dope and he’s no.1 right now PERIOD! Not even control can shake up homie

      • Elayorx El

        Real talk fam.

      • pauleyPee

        The classic debate of Plagiarism vs. Connoisseurism. This is a case of the latter.

        When Big Bank Hank rapped “I’m the C-A-S-A, the N-O-V-A”, that was a bite…………. That verse was actually lifted from Grandmaster Caz… Pretty obvious because Grandmaster Caz’s alias at the time was “Casanova”. But again, this was hardly that.

        So, I agree, it’s going to take more than a few claims of plagiarism and a “Control” verse to knock this dude out of his top spot.

    • InTheNightKitchen

      “bygone era’s” b not errors

      • Elayorx El

        My bad, but that was a metaphor;-)

      • Elayorx El

        Thank you, Mr. Skinner.

    • Papi Peligro

      That last Drake album was HOEREBLE. I like him on that Migos joint. I ain’t mad at Drake for Bar Riding. If you bar ride and the person don’t like it you at least need to apologize hit him up with something. You can’t say pay homage and then disrespect.

      JAY Z BAR RIDES LIKE ITS GOING OUT OF STYLE 1 OF MY FAVORITE RAPPERS. SO REALLY WHO CARES.

      • Elayorx El

        No doubt. I see you.

    • YaheardSyndicate

      Bro He stole the mans whole verse. If you made a song and someone stole it from you line for line, you gonna sit there and say “its drake thats fine” come on man. And he put your lyrics on that casio keyboard beat. come on man.

      • Elayorx El

        Nah fam, your absolutely right, but this was before further information was reported. I totally agree. Respect.

    • 84stickupkid

      ”Bygone era’s” huh? Sure, only the 90’s will be remembered for bein some real n.i.g.g.a.z while Drake’s gen will be remembered for being bitch azz okey doke muhfukaz. 4 Tay’s homies – 2 Pac, Richie Rich, Mac Dre and Spice 1. Drake’s homies – Kimye West, Jay Z, Young Money etc etc. WHICH SIDE ARE U ON…

      • Elayorx El

        Aight fam, you got me laughin on this one. “Bygone”, was in no way intended to be disrespectful, I just put it that way to denote how many from that era, can’t seem to grow out of the ultra competitive way, and hate we seem to have with each other. I’m not saying that is 4 Tay, but it happens a lot. That era comparison was nice, but don’t forget the Battle Rap phenomenon, as well as T.D.E., as far as those from Drake’s so-called time period. Myself personally, I try to stay away from all of that “era” stuff, because it is not something we made up. It was given to us. Dope post though, and for the record, I’m on all sides fam, cause we all Hip-Hop. Respect.

    • pauleyPee

      lmfao @ “cliffnotes”

  • Word7

    Yeah Drake did jack a few lines lol Rappin 4 Tay I hear you son!!

  • Caliwaver

    I’m sorry but what part of the song did he bite? Serious question.

    • Southcidal

      Ahhhhhh, the very first line of his verse.

      • Caliwaver

        Oh ok thx

  • bigdoe6

    4Tay is a Legend. Dudes need to start getting slapped up again like it’s 95.

    • YaheardSyndicate

      I agree. These duds are d*** riders. Its like they cant accept the fact that their idols are uncreative biters. Drake could say anything and they would defend it.

      • Peter

        Jay-Z has made a helluva career out of it….is he uncreative too?

    • fabbidavisjr

      Drake should buy 4tay a rolex and get on with it.

      • gad0876@aol.com

        drake isnt a rapper hes an r and b artist whats the arguing about.

  • Ike’s Mood

    i dont jam with drake, but it didnt sound disrespectful. sounds like he was just payin homage

    • ANDRE SALAZAR

      Saying you’re paying “homage” is just a clever way of being a dick-rider & stealing at the same “damn” time! #reality

      • Peter

        well then Jay-Z has made a helluva career out of it

      • ANDRE SALAZAR

        The difference is that Biggie gets publishing checks the more his lyrics are used in “big” tracks that generate money = ONLY Jay-Z can do that!! #duh Jay-Z is cool with Biggie’s family, so it’s not a problem to tell them what he’s about to do. #checks

      • Peter

        Ohh so you can steal rhymes and its ok cuz your cool with the persons family and they get paid? So drake just has to write a check and the thievery is ok? thanks for clearing that up bro!

      • Mob Heata

        Snoop Dogg did it to Slick Rick on Lodi Dodi it ain’t dick riding it’s showing respect to the ogz.

      • ANDRE SALAZAR

        Stealing IS stealing!!! If you want to use someone’s lyrics, why can’t you just ask them before you release the track??! #simple

  • Dan_Tebasco

    Yeah the first 4 lines or whatever is directly from 4-Tay… Who’s always been one of my favs from the West…

  • Papi Peligro

    Drake album couldn’t even cop my top 20 hiphop albums of 2013. Dudes on his way down. I actually think Trinidad James had better music for the club and party crowd.

  • Breeze

    ok so he bit part of. . . ok most of the verse lmfao. but all in all how could you not respect the best rapper in the game right now taking you best verse ever and redoing it. and im pretty sure once drake got a check he would have broke homie off with somethin

    • YaheardSyndicate

      So hes the best rapper in the game, stiealing someones whole verse and thats why you should respect him? listen to what your saying. Id be mad he put my lyrics on that casio kepyboard beat.

      • MildManneredReporter

        lmao. beat is trash tho

    • ursocalledgod

      best rapper in the game? this part time r&b nigga is the BEST in the game? do your homework study up on the game or broaden your horizons B. you must be a broad if you think this is the hottest in the game right now. smh

      • Breeze

        Lmfao it was a sarcastic statement u must be the bitch gettin ya panties in a bunch like I was talking about you.

      • ursocalledgod

        Sarcasm really? Without anything following it to indicate that it was huh? Smh yea you must be a bitch or a bitch ass nigga. Either way…

      • Breeze

        yall niggaz act like bitches on here. real talk niggaz get offensive about what other niggaz say that have nothing to do wit them. . . bitch traits. then you tryna explain yaself to niggaz about your “opinion” which no one cares about. . . BITCH NIGGA TRAITS/ stfu clown ass nigga

      • ursocalledgod

        do me a favor and find the closet man in your vicinity and put his dick in your mouth cause I obviously can’t from here. Smh silly ass crab ass nigga. This grown folk BI. Lmao

      • Breeze

        You a faggot. . . Period. You on ya gay nigga bi

      • ursocalledgod

        Really? That’s all you got little fella lol I let a couple of my little broads read this shit and they agreed with me. “What kind of nigga even bump drake shit? I thought that was for us?” Lmao bitch ass nigga!! BOSS UP!

      • Peter

        If he isnt the hottest who is?

      • ursocalledgod

        Pusha T, Kendrick, Jigga, take your pick as of hottest right now. Of all time… Face, Jada, NAS, Jigga… You tell me where the r&b slash rapper fits in? I like some of drakes shit but in no form or fashion is he the hottest. If your a youngin and don’t know any better I can see why you would think that.

      • Peter

        1) were not talking about all time
        2)out of the 3 ppl you named Kendrick is the only person thats debatable(jay is a lengend so i never count him in terms of hottest out)….PUSHA T dude? lol you know damn well you reaching man…push T wouldnt even lie to himself with that statement. & lastly stop using that tired as “youngin” line like drake only has young fans….im 35 man and the fact you didnt mention big or pac in you all time list almost convinced me not to reply.

      • ursocalledgod

        Big and PAC are generic responses bro. Everybody knows that. I didn’t name my ” top ten” I gave you a few so you can gauge your boy. For you to be 35 and even debating drake being the ” hottest” shows me where you stand on this hip hop shit. Do your homework homie. Push is a MONSTER I don’t have to back him tho read the reviews. You keep running with whatever the MACHINE pushes as ” hottest” Ill stick that hard core hip hop. The true and original shit homie.

      • Peter

        imma push fan so dont tell me to read reviews blah blah…we are NOT talking about the best out which you clearly seem to be. WE are speaking the “HOTTEST” out(trying to use quotes to help you focus)…u know the mtv type list the make every year that ppl get outraged about because the dont understand the debate….and jigga is just as generic as big and pac so dont include him and exclude them. I can tell your one of those if they get alot of attention i dont like em because its the cool thing to say im ol skool rah rah type of ppl but i lived through that era and i love it just as much as the next man but im speaking NOW, with the current artist we have to work with….so back to the topic as for the HOTTEST rapper out right now drakes signing/rapping ass is your guy with kendrick a close second, now it may not be who you want up front right now as far the face of rap & i understand pal but hey i didnt want philly to beat my cowboys but they did…such is life mr “HIPHOP HEAD” peace

      • ursocalledgod

        It’s all a matter of opinion which Is what I was giving you. I can only speak from my point of view. Lyrical content, flow, cadence and subject matter hands down Push, Kendrick, And even my dude Rozay are MILES ahead of Drake. Drake is hot cause the broads love him. Especially the 16-35 age range. That’s who’s buying that soft shit. Record sales and Mtv don’t dictate what’s hot where im from. The streets do. What’s coming out the rides in the summer. What are the djs playing at the block parties, what do the old heads respect. That’s what does it for me. Btw Philly is my team!! The Cowboys haven’t been shit since the 90s lol tell Jones to stay in his lane and get Garret’s soft ass out of there and let the coach do his job! Real spill.

      • ursocalledgod

        Your three probably contained Big Sean and 2 chains too.. Smh lol

  • nastinupe

    That was a large chunk of lyrics. But when you’re as big as Drake, it no longer matters. Just like Drake took Ma$e’s lines in another song on NWTS. But people know it’s Ma$e and it is what it is. You don’t see Ma$e going all crazy and looking for credit.

    • Troll_E_G

      Why would anybody that creates something not want credit if someone took it

      • BlackBarbie2000

        PREACH.

    • BlackBarbie2000

      so aslong as your a big superstar it’s cool to steal lyrics/style from the past and not recite the original. lol this generation is a FAIL.

  • iamwhoiam

    So…Drake shoulda said shout out to Rappin 4 Tay? Stop bitchin man.

    • YaheardSyndicate

      So he should just let someone steal a song he wrote?

      • jordanS7

        He didnt steal it, he was paying homage like every other rapper who takes lines from legends and old school rappers

      • Mob Heata

        So you listen to fake rappers

      • iamwhoiam

        I mean if he’s using the recognized verse (like he’s done on other songs) shouldn’t we assume that he’s paying homage? It’s not like he’s stolen some unknown artists verses that nobody would recognize. 4 Tay should take it that way in my opinion.

  • 10timesovaG

    I thought that was paying homage bringing lyrics back cuz homie fell back on the music but he is a legend but damn.drake give the nigga like 10-15k and keep it movin that’s keepin it G

    • BlackBarbie2000

      stealing/swagger jacking/biting and not highlighting the ORIGINAL is not paying homage. stop sugarcoating

    • Mob Heata

      This nigga got Tupac as his avatar and don’t know about Tay. 4Tay was on All Eyez On Me and Tupac went to him wanting a verse and waited till Tay got out the joint.

  • Mr. Bang Bang

    Somebody tell Rappin 4Tay put the hairnet back on get off twitter the McNuggets burning

  • $25041764

    he should thank drake

    • fabbidavisjr

      Drake should pay him

    • BlackBarbie2000

      wow.. never thought id see the day that stealing rhymes was considered normal and okay. and you should pay the person who did it

  • Soul Pancakes

    I don’t even think 4 Tay want money he just want a shout out. If you listen to it, the words are different but those bars were spit back in 94′.

  • pauleyPee

    “… The Bay hates Drake, in general…” Fake illseed obviously isn’t a traveling person. California is overall, a Drake stronghold… Don’t get that Kendrick Lamar mention eff’d up.

    • Mob Heata

      I think he know what he is talking about. Drake gave a shout out to the Bay but after the New Years Eve jam at last year at NYC he changed up his lyrics and that’s when the Bay started to hate him. I’m from the Bay. A lot of young boys and girls still like him though.

  • Slaughtr

    You never bite nobody’s shyt some of you young niggaz dont know the rules to this rap shyt.Get some fuckin respect and know what the fuk real hip hop is,you didnt invent the shit it was passed to you.if you dont like 4 tay fine but suka boy Drake bit thats not paying homage because you thinkits over so fuk him bite.Ridiculous

  • MADNEWYORKER914

    Young niggas these days are a bunch of hating pu$$ies!!! You better respect those that paved the way for you corny no talent clowns!!!

    • Mob Heata

      Snoop Dogg paid homage to Slick Rick when he did Lodi Dodi. If you gonna get anything from a old school pay respects, especially when it comes from a fake rapper like Drake that don’t know anything about that game.

  • BlackBarbie2000

    This entire generation is built off of what has been already done and all of you ride with it and when a legend demands respect y’all call them washed up and old. so it’s surprising to see some people on here actually support the OG’s…

  • biting another person lyrics used to be a crime in hiphop (back in the day) lol

  • hitmhard313

    That nigga Drake took ah nigga whole 16 or 12 what ever you wanna call it
