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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
