Drake Wants Royalties for YOLO!

The Canadian hip hop artist launched an attack on Walgreen’s and Macy’s for selling merchandise with the term ‘YOLO’ printed on it!


YOLO, which means ‘You Only Live Once’, was not originally coined by the artist, although it did become popular only last year after Drake used the term in a song called ‘The Motto’.

That seems enough for the 26-year old to stake a claim for the exclusive rights of the term as he uploaded pictures on Instagram of ‘YOLO’ caps and clothes being sold at Wal-greens and Macy’s!


As a caption to one of the pictures, Drake wrote “Walgreens …. you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”

Drake’s claims haven’t gone down too well with fans and they expressed their disagreement on Twitter.

Drake did not create the term ”YOLO”. It’s actually a restaurant in Florida!” tweeted one fan.

“Screw @Drake for getting mad about that. RICK ROSS started YOLO wayyyyy before drake said that in a song.” posted another.

Seriously, Drake, are you going to ask for money from everyone who uses the term YOLO??? There are currently over 100 YOLO trademark applications in the US alone!!!
