LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA - OCTOBER 30: Drake speaks onstage during Drake's Till Death Do Us Part rap battle on October 30, 2021 in Long Beach, California.

Drake is not playing around. The Toronto rapper has filed a cease and desist order against an impersonator, who goes by Izzyy Drake, so that he can change his name. The social media personality took to Instagram Monday (Oct. 24) to share the legal warning he got from Drake’s OVO Sound label.

“Notice to cease and desist,” the letter began. “Dear IzzyyDrake, this letter serves as a notice of your unauthorized use of the trademark, ‘OVO’ to promote your brand and likeness, as well as your unauthorized fabrication of media which is Per Se damaging and defamatory to our brand. Your conducted actions are unwarranted, unwelcome, and unacceptable.”

It continued: “In addition, this shall serve as a pre-suit letter demanding that you provide us written assurance within 7 days that you will cease and desist from making any further factually untrue statements involving OVO Sound and/or Drake, and that you will no longer fabricate media that portrays the aforementioned Trademarks. Thank you for your cooperation.”

Izzy Drake shared the letter on Drake’s 36th birthday Monday and told him that he would follow through in changing his name as a birthday present.

“Happy birthday to the greatest artist in history and my biggest inspiration,” he wrote. “I got this cease and desist letter from OVO couple days ago and as a respectful b day gift to @champagnepapi I changed my name from IzzyyDrake to Izzyyfamous. More life my OVO brother @preme @bakanotnice @tvgucci.”

Tensions between Izzyy Drake and the real Drake got pretty intense earlier this year in Miami when the real Drake reportedly threatened to slap the lookalike.

“I pulled up to Drake’s hotel room, let’s just say it wasn’t very inviting,” Izzyy Drake told the We In Miami Podcast in August per HipHopDX. “They tried coming at us, they just tried coming at us so I ended up texting him, telling him about the fight and he said that he’s gonna go up and slap me for free.”

Drake has not confirmed Izzyy Drake’s alleged Miami incident.
