history.house.govThe First Woman Representative to Preside Over the House Chamber | US House of Representatives: History, Art & ArchivesOn this date, Alice Robertson of Oklahoma became the first woman to preside over a session of the U.S. House of Representatives. Members had just concluded deliberations for appropriating $15,000 to send a United States delegation to observe the centennial celebration of Peru’s independence. Speaker Pro Tempore Joseph Walsh of Massachusetts called Robertson to the chair to preside over the roll call vote on the measure. Former Speaker Joe Cannon of Illinois, seated in the front row, joined House Members who delivered a thunderous ovation as Robertson mounted the rostrum. She rapped the gavel twice to bring the House to order as the roll call began. Known for her wit and outspoken positions against women’s rights organizations, Robertson was largely silent during the half hour when she wielded the gavel. After the roll was taken, she declared in an authoritative voice, “On this vote the yeas were 209 and the nays 42. Two-thirds having voted in the affirmative, the resolution is passed.” A smiling Representative Robertson then left the rostrum amid a final round of applause.
spin.comYou'll Probably Never Hear Migos' Demo of Beyoncé's "Apeshit"The lead single of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's surprise new album Everything Is Love is "Apeshit," and you've surely, at the very least, seen the screen cap from its video, of the two lounging at the Louvre in front of the Mona Lisa. "Apeshit," like much of the album, is a swaggering rap song, one which features cool ad-libs from Quavo and Offset of Migos, who are credited on the song as additional vocalists. Migos appearing on other people's songs simply as disembodied coos is by now not uncommon—Quavo appears on Childish Gambino's "This Is America," and the two were being grafted onto tracks even as an imitation as far back as Usher's 2014 single "I Don't Mind"—but their involvement in "Apeshit" went further. Early on Monday, a full reference track—essentially a demo—recorded by the duo somehow made its way online. Of course, by now you can't listen to it. The original leak was quickly scrubbed by Universal Music Group, meaning you'll likely have to embark on a concerted spelunking effort in

spin.comJimmy Wopo, Rising Pittsburgh Rap Star, Dead at 21Jimmy Wopo, a rising rap star from Pittsburgh, was shot and killed in the city's Hill District on Monday in a reported double shooting. Wopo, born Travon Smart, was 21 years old.
