Drake Demands Royalties for Popularizing YOLO

Rappers always come up with witty sayings and slogans, and Drake is no exception.  He’s been known as the guy who spreads the jargon YOLO or You Only Live Once.  However, when copyright matters come into view, he’s not staying silent because, well… YOLO.

Drake took to his Instagram account when he spotted Snoopy and Charlie Brown t-shirts being sold at Macy’s and some baseball caps at Walgreens with YOLO emblazoned on the front parts of both merchandises. Apparently, the rapper wasn’t feeling the fact that nobody asked for his permission (and price points) to put the popular jargon on the t-shirts and caps for commercial uses.

Without hesitation, Drake posted pics on his Instagram account, addressing Walgreens (and Macy’s):

You gotta either chill or cut the cheque.

Drake’s Instagram has been creating debate among his followers. Some say the phrase existed long before Drake was even born, while others have Drake’s back and demanded the retailers to pay up.

Which side are you on?
