This week I visited the Oceans at the River Casino on the North Shore, the William Pitt Student Union in Oakland, Calvary Baptist Church in the Hill District, Club 21 in the Strip District and YaMomz House Recording Studio in East Liberty.

My first stop was Club 21 in the Strip District. Hip-hop recording artist Mista Scrap and the crew held it down by presenting an event called “Proud To Be Local” featuring local artists from around the Pittsburgh area. B-Flames and other artists performed for the crowd and ripped up the stage.

The party was hot at Jai Legacy’s event at the River’s Casino at Ocean’s Drum Bar.

My next stop was Calvary Baptist Church in the Hill District where Pastor Melvin T. Jackson and the congregation celebrated their third anniversary. Congratulations and keep hope alive in the Hill District.

Birthday celebrations were the hot topic of the night at the River’s Casino.

My next stop was the William Pitt Student Union where the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation held the annual awards ceremony honoring African-American journalists in different arenas. The New Pittsburgh Courier won five awards and Brotha Ash was one of the winners.

My next stop was Oceans at the River Casino on the North Shore where Jai Legacy presented an event featuring DJ Shef on the 1s and 2s and all the sexy ladies came out to represent. Look for big things to come from Jai Legacy because he’s making things happen in the ’Burgh.

My final destination was YaMomz House Recording Studio where N.B.A. Ent was in the studio doing their thing. Emmai Alaquiva was in the building laying down the tracks.

You know Brotha Ash has a REAL CONNECTION to the community. Send all your information to and I’ll see you next week OUT AND ABOUT!
