Drake Sued by Playboy

According to Hef's company, Drizzy Drake's song "The Best I Ever Had" illegally samples one of their copyrighted songs -- "Fallin in Love" by Hamilton, Joe Frank and Dennison/Reynolds. reports, "Playboy claims that Drake and his crew 'knew or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording was protected by copyright…' and that 'each Defendant continues to infringe upon Plaintiff’s rights in and to the copyrighted sound recording.'
