Drake Wants Macys and Walgreens to Pay Up For Using "YOLO"

Drake is often credited with the acronym "YOLO" which stands for "You Only Live Once." Well, now he wants a cut of profits from stores using his phrase. He called out Walgreens and Macy's, according to recent reports.

The rapper posted an Instagram shot of several YOLO hats for sale, writing, "Walgreens... you gotta either chill or cut the cheque."

He also called out another major retailer, posting an Instagram shot of  YOLO on a Charlie Brown t-shirt: "Macy's... same goes for you," Drake warned.

Drake popularized YOLO in his 2011 hit "The Motto," featuring Lil Wayne. He's rumored to be trying to trademark it, but that hasn't been confirmed.

Does Drake own YOLO? We don't even know if he is the first person to use that acronym and nothing is clear if these two retailers will cough up the money for Drake or not.
