An Oklahoma City nightclub owner wants Drake to pay for damages from a party resulting in at least one arrest and heavy marijuana use, shutting down the club, TMZ reports.

The owner of the Dollhouse Lounge and Burlesque says the Young Money rapper arrived at the club with an entourage for a private party March 1st. Employees noticed marijuana smoke from his VIP area, the owner says.

Police shut down the party and arrested the club manager after finding a partially burnt marijuana cigarette in the VIP section. The Dollhouse's owner is asking for compensation totaling several thousand dollars. Drake's representatives were unavailable for comment.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
