The acronym â€œYOLOâ€ (You Only Live Once) has been on the tongues of many in and around Hip Hop. It is now part of the “Pop Culture”, andÂ Drake wants the check cut for theÂ phrase he created.
It seems this acronym is so widely used it is now appearing in popular department stores, and with popular cartoon characters. This has gotten the attention of the YMCMB artist.
Using the Instagram handle, @champagnepapi, Drake posted pictures of two separate items that featured the â€œYOLOâ€ phrase.
The first picture, which showed about 16 hats with the â€œYOLOâ€ phrase on them was taken at Walgreens and also included this comment from Drake, â€œWalgreens….you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.â€ In a second picture taken from the rapper, this time at Macyâ€™s, a t-shirt with the phrase â€œYOLO Is My Mottoâ€ along with Snoopy and Charlie Brown was pictured along with the caption, â€œMacy’s…same goes for you.â€
It is not known if Drake has ever trademarked the acronym â€œYOLOâ€ or the entire phrase (You Only Live Once), if not oops!
