DRAKE: Pays Up for Stealing Lyrics
What do you do when you "borrow" someone's rap and they confront you for not giving credit? You should pay up -- like Drake.
Drizzy was called out by Rappin' 4-Tay after using word-for-word lyrics from the 1994 hit "Playaz Club" in his verse on YG's hit "Who Do You Love." But 4-Tay says it wasn't really about the money -- he was mostly offended because Drake didn't give him a songwriting credit.
Although a lawsuit was never filed, TMZ reports that Drake's label has agreed to the $100,000 settlement.

LOVE AND HIP-HOP: ATLANTA: Reunion Brawl
It sounds like there wasn't a lot of love going around when the Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta reunion show taped last night (Tuesday) in New York City.
According to TMZ, cops were called to the set after a huge brawl broke out involving Benzino, Althea, Stevie J, Joseline, Debra, Tammy, and Mimi. Sources say things popped off after Benzino made a crack about Stevie J and Joseline doing drugs. After Benzino and former friend Stevie J squared off -- but was separated by bodyguards -- Joseline apparently sucker-punched Althea. Witnesses say that's when "all hell broke loose" and cops and paramedics were called.
There were no reported arrests, but three people did receive medical attention.
