Rapper Wiz Khalifa was reportedly cited in Winston-Salem, N.C. last night for marijuana possession, according to TMZ. Reports claim Khalifa, born Cameron Thomaz, was busted holding 11.39 grams of grass when police searched his tour bus after a show. Khalifa was cited, released and will apparently appear in court at a future date.

Just last week, Khalifa was nabbed for misdemeanor possession in Nashville after smoking up his Holiday Inn hotel room. For that offense, he must appear in Davidson County, Tenn. court by May 14th for booking.

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."
