Uh-oh! With fame and success comes lawsuits!

Jimmy from Degrassi Drake has been sued by Playboy Enterprises for what they claim is a copyright infringement in his breakthrough single "Best I Ever Had!"

The lawsuit, filed against Drake, Cash Money Records, Universal Music Group and Universal Music Group Distribution, asserts that the song illegally samples Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds' 1975 song "Fallin' In Love," the rights of which are owned by Playboy.

According to court documents, "Best I Ever Had" has been "an enourmous commercial success" and continues:

"Each Defendant either knew, or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording ['Fallin' in Love'] was protected by copyright. Each Defendant continues to infringe upon Plaintiff's right in and to the copyrighted sound recording."

What do U think?? Is Drake in the wrong or is Playboy's lawsuit unjustified??

    He seriously copied the song. Listen to it both songs. Playboy's lawsuit is just.

    If he used the sample & didn't pay for it, then yeah, he's in the wrong.



  5. 5

  6. 6

    Yeah the intro of the orginal song is so similiar but his had a hip hop twist…many rappers do it like Asher Roth's I love college was taken from Say it aint so by Weezer..you don'thear them complaining. Playboy needs money right now so i guess its just aswell. This is a bad picture of him shame on you Perez.

    just listened to that 'fallin in love' song and i actually think playboy's right. 'best i ever had' definitely used a sample of that song.



  12. 12

    I knew the first time I heard it that it was sampled from the beginning of Fallin' In Love. Pay up!



  13. 13

    He looks like he's missing a couple of chromosomes ! FUG



  14. 14

    only the begining of the song sound the same
    not the rest O.o



  15. 15

    He's so ugly. It looks like he has down syndrome.



  16. 16

    Drake is fucking hideous, and his songs suck!! Go back or Degrassi or Canada, you weird looking creature!



  17. 17

    Songs dont sound seven simillar, you guys just wanna bitch about anything, Drake's music rocks.. Playboy wont get shit from this joke of a suit.



  18. 18

    I was flipping stations and ran across MTV while this guy's video was on. And what a surprise. He was "singing" with autotune. Just proves what I've said before. These people rap because they don't have any singing talent. and they need to hide that with a fake voice. And they do it while they TALK. So, kids,keep buying his/their albums because you wouldn't know a real singer if you actually heard one.



  19. 19

    OMG…its very similar… shizzzz….



  20. 20

    He is SO ugly…Why is he famous BTW?



  21. 21

    This moron looks like a pathetic knuckledraqger! Is there any gray matter in his empty head??????????????????????



  22. 22

    Oh come on playboy, you dont have enough money? Let the poor guy enjoy a little bit of success before you bankrupt him. I agree if he used the song he should pay for it. But does there always have to be a lawsuit involved? Cant we save the courts time for more important things? Like real Criminals?



  23. 23

    i have no opinion on this matter in particular but i was just thinking….originality is exhaustive. Eventually all "originality" will be comprised of classics/originals mashed up.



  24. 24

    You can clearly hear the sample, and if you saw the concert clip where he fell and busted his ass, he uses the song in question as an intro. Sorry Drake. As sexy as those big ass eyebrows are…pay up!!!



  25. 25

    he fucked up! why didn't he just get the permission to use the song? moron.



  26. 26

    He looks completely baked in this pic.



  27. 27
