Drake is having a pretty great 24 hours! After winning a Grammy last night for Best Rap Album, dropping the video to his new single “Started From The Bottom” that everyone is raving about and announcing his new album, now the lawsuit that’s been dragging out surrounding his 2011 hit “Marvin’s Room” has been settled!

However, Finesse’s argument was that the track (“Hip 2 Da Game” off Mac’s debut tape Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza) was Mac’s big ticket to fame and the reason he’s making the dough he is today. So what came of the suit? Details and a statement from Mac below. Marisa Mendez
