- Mac Miller will debut at the top of the Billboard charts with his debut album, “Blue Slide Park,” which sold just under 150,000 copies in its first week. It’s quite an achievement for the 19-year-old Pittsburgh rapper as “Blue Slide Park” becomes the first independently distributed album to hit No. 1 since “Tha Dogg Pound” in 1995. Miller performs at Fillmore Silver Spring on Dec. 1.

- Autopsy results for rapper Heavy D were inconclusive and it could take several more weeks to determine the cause of death.

- Paul Simonon, bassist for punk legends the Clash, revealed that he was arrested earlier this year while working undercover for Greenpeace. He posed as a cook while protesting an oil rig. Punk rock activism!

- Laura Kennedy, original bassist for New York No Wave band Bush Tetras passed away on Monday. Listen to the band’s classic “Too Many Creeps” below.
