Drake

Despite all of the drama currently going on, it looks like Drake isn’t letting it get in the way of his philanthropy.

The Toronto native donated $75K to help build a recording studio in Strawberry Mansion High School located in Philadelphia. Principal Linda Cliatt-Wayman explained how they have been struggling with budgeting issues and a bad reputation of having high amounts of violence in the school, so it was difficult to get the proper funding for the studio they wanted to put in.

Drake Settles With Rappin 4-Tay For $100k For Using His Lyrics On “Who Do You Love?”

Drake

Often times, rappers will spit a couple of bars previously said by another rapper – typically one they admire and/or said some dope sh*t. Such is the case with Drake on “Who Do You Love?”, but unfortunately, it cost him $100,000.

A few of the opening bars on “Who Do You Love?” are pulled from Rappin 4-Tay’s 1994 hit “Playaz Club,” and 4-Tay wanted to have at least gotten some credit, if nothing else. He never officially filed a lawsuit against Drake, but I guess there were threats of one – because behind closed doors, the guys settled for a cool $100k for “borrowing” the lines. Listen to both records below.

Wonder how Biggie would be taxing all these people if he was alive!

Tyga Is Being Sued…AGAIN!

IFWT_Tyga_Television

Between the controversy and the lawsuits, Tyga is constantly getting himself involved in some nonsense!

T-Raww is being sued by his landlord (AGAIN) for being late on his rent. He apparently is behind two months worth at $25K per month. If he doesn’t cough up the dough by Saturday, the landlord says he’ll be charging Tyga $833.33 A DAY that he’s not paid. Keep in mind, this is the second time Tyga gets sued for not paying his rent on time. Last month, he was hit with a lawsuit by his former Calabassas landlord for being behind $80,000.

The most ironic part of this story is that Tyga’s rented home is the same place he lived at with his baby mama, Blac Chyna, so her name is on the court documents too. I’m sure that court date is going to be a tad bit awkward.

How did Tyga’s 17-year-old girlfriend Kylie Jenner just drop $2.7 million for a mansion and he is having issues paying his rent?! Insane! Maybe when Kylie officially turns 18 in a few more days, she can move her older rapper bae into her crib so he doesn’t have to worry about these pesky lawsuits every other month.
