Rapper takes to Twitter to make veiled threats for his “motto”
Drake is calling out Macy’s and Walgreens for using “YOLO,” which stands for “you only live once,” on their products, Billboard can confirm.The rapper, who made “YOLO” popular with the single above, called “The Motto,” a collaboration with Lil Wayne and Tyga, posted photos of the “offending” products and a veiled threat that the two stores should pay him for the rights to use “YOLO.”
He’s since deleted the tweets.
“Walgreens....you gotta either chill or cut the cheque,” Drake wrote in the caption to a photo of fitted caps with “YOLO.”
“Macy's... same goes for you,” he added in the caption to another photo, of a tee with Snoopy and Charlie Brown on it.
Technically though, Drake does not own the rights to “YOLO,” which would explain why everyone is talking about his tweets right now.
