Playboy Sues Drake

drake_6.30.10.jpgThere is much strange possibly-a-musician versus magazine drama idly circling the crusty pop culture drain today. Earlier, it was Wavves gently propositioning the New York Observer, and now it’s what’s left of Playboy magazine suing Drake.

Playboy Enterprises has filed a suit against Drake (n&eacute Aubrey Graham), Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group for copyright infringement, claiming Drake illegally sampled the 1975 panty-dropper “Fallin’ in Love” — to which Playboy owns the rights — in his single “Best I Ever Had.”

We hope Drake’s song rings true after all this is over, in any case.
