The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is in the process of creating a living music collection called Stacks. This project is an ongoing effort to document Pittsburgh’s growing and changing music scene. All that’s need for access to this collection of music is a Carnegie Library card. Submissions are being accepted until October 8.

Still in mourning after the passing of Mac Miller, The Steelers honored the Pittsburgh artist during the first home game of the season on Saturday.

In Bed By Ten held a dance party at Spirit on Friday night in support of the Pittsburgh PRIDE program.


Cardi B’s album, Invasion of Privacy, released in back in April, has become the most streamed female rap album of all time. That title was previously held by Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint. But, this achievement is being overshadowed by a transphobic meme that was posted on Cardi B’s Facebook.

Rapper/singer Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, is retiring his nickname. During a performance at Madison Square Garden this weekend, the “This is America” artist told the audience, “If you bought a ticket to this concert, that means you bought a ticket to the last Childish Gambino tour ever.” Glover plans to continue to make music, just without the moniker.

Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly have been going at it ever since the surprise release of Eminem’s album, Kamikaze. In the album, Eminem disses a multitude of artists, MGK, received an entire song entitled “Not Alike” attacking him. MGM released track, “Rap Devil” in response a few days after along with a music video. The beef was thought to be over with until Eminem released another diss track, “Killshot” a few days ago.

Lastly, Ariana Grande made a statement about the passing of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller. She posted a video of Miller on Instagram where he is smiling and wearing a sweatshirt with the words, “Everything will be ok.”
