Drake’s attorney must be putting in overtime at the OVO headquarters. The 27-year-old rapper has been sued a good 10 times in the last four years, and the litigations, just keep on coming.
So what gives?
Well, Drake is worth a lot of duckets — roughly $40 million, and like the Diddy saying goes: mo’ money, mo’ problems.
The latest on a long list of legal adversaries is the estate of jazz legend Jimmy Smith, suing the Toronto-born recording artist for an unauthorized sample from the Nothing Was the Same track, “Poundcake/Paris Morton 2.” Smith wants $300,000 from Drake.
He hasn’t publicly responded to claims that he jacked an unauthorized Smith monologue, but Drake can already relax himself, because he’s been here before. Many, many, times over.
