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.

“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.
