Carnegie Mellon’s Arts Greenhouse program cultivates the artistic talent of Pittsburgh teens through positive and critical engagement with hip-hop. Every Saturday, the Arts Greenhouse brings a dozen or more teens to campus to create their own music. Participants record in a professional studio on campus, releasing a new album of music every May. Arts Greenhouse participants also create music videos, publish chapbooks, and perform at non-profit events. The mixtape will feature 14 tracks of music entirely written and performed by Pittsburgh teens in the Arts Greenhouse program (aside from one guest appearance by veteran of the Pgh rap scene, Charon Don.) All of the music on the album was produced either by AG participants or staff. We're currently working on wrapping up the recording process, and mixing the album.
