Most of you have probably seen something somewhere that says "YOLO" on it, be it a Facebook post, Twitter hash tag, or, in Drake's case, hats and T-Shirts. Well, now, the rapper partially responsible for introducing the phrase wants to make a cut of profits made from selling merchandise with the popular phrase on it.

On Christmas Day, he sent out the above picture on Instagram with the caption, "Walgreens....you gotta either chill or cut the cheque." He later sent out another picture of T-Shirts at Macy's. The term originally debuted on the track The Motto in late 2011. Since then, it has been an internet sensation.

 

The question is, does Drake deserve any sort of compensation for the use of the term? What are your thoughts?
