With his Take Care hit “The Motto,” Drake made YOLO (you only live once) possibly the most pervasive tagline of the past 12 months. And now that the acronym is popping up on merchandise everywhere, Drake thinks he’s entitled to a paycheck.
On Christmas Eve, the Toronto rapper posted a couple of photographs, one taken at a Walgreens store and another at Macy’s, both showing merchandise stamped with “YOLO.”
Under the image from Walgreens, which shows a stack of colorful caps being sold for six bucks a pop, Drake wrote, “Walgreens … you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”
And under the Macy’s photo, which shows a T-shirt featuring Peanuts characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy imprinted with “YOLO is my motto,” he added, “Macy’s … same goes for you.”
