Now that Pittsburgh is a known quantity in the hip-hop world, thanks to Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, et cetera, making it big out of the 'Burgh is no longer a ridiculous dream.

The 58s from McKeesport hope to be among that number, building up local notoriety online through their YouTube videos for tracks like “Formed in McKee” and “Hardwood Classic.”

The 58s' distinctively combative personality comes from rappers B. White and Mayo, who never fail to give their hard-as-nails hometown plenty of credit. Recently, they've been doing something called “Mon Valley Mondays,” releasing new music videos, along with freestyles and behind-the-scenes footage, every week.

B. White (Brian Whiteman), 29, recently consented to take the Trib's personality test.
