Drake Foolishly Demands Payment for ‘YOLO’ Usage


Drake has begun insisting that retailers cut him a check for usage of the slogan ‘YOLO’ on merchandise. However, the rapper didn’t invent the term… he merely popularized it.

As even your grandmother probably knows by now, YOLO stands for “You Only Live Once.” While Drake’s 2011 song ‘The Motto’ certainly spread the word around, the initialism was coined as early as 2004 and was used in many contexts before the rapper got his mitts on it. However, that hasn’t stopped him from tweeting pictures of merchandise at stores such as Walgreens and Macy’s and demanding that they cut him a check!

Hey Drake, we’d like to introduce you to yet another term which you didn’t invent, but which definitely applies: it looks like you’re SOL. (Now, to whom do we make out the check for that usage?)
