Hip-hop star Flo Rida has entered a deal for first-time offenders for his DUI arrest in Miami Beach earlier this year. The rapper's attorney told the Miami Herald today that he will enroll in the "Back on Track" program, which will require him to perform community service and attend classes. If he completes these requirements, his charge will be amended to reckless driving.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
