Drake and Coachella have an iffy history together, as his first major festival performance during its 2015 edition has passed into the annals of history with its uneven quality and infamous Madonna cameo. Another related conflict has now flared up, as Drake (who was staying in the area over the weekend) accused the nearby Madison Club of race-based prejudice in a now-deleted Instagram post he put up yesterday.

According to TMZ, an account that may belong to the club responded to Drake's original Instagram post in the comments, apologising for "the inconvenience" and saying that they would look into the issue.

We'll update this story as details emerge.
