AsTheWorldSpins Raekwon Interview from DJ Hotsauce on Vimeo.

Cleveland Browns' Brian Robiskie breaking through a tough rookie summer

Even Brian Robiskie -- the most prepared rookie on hand, the most polished receiver in the 2009 draft, the son of an NFL coach and a Browns ballboy for a few seasons -- was thrown off his game a bit in the first Eric Mangini training camp.

And he had the benefit of his father's 26 years experience as an NFL coach with five teams, including the Browns.

Terry Robiskie did what he could to prep his son on what to expect. But it's like learning to swim. You don't know what the water feels like until you jump in.

Bigfoot for The North Face Collection

Incorporating his own brand of outdoors elements, artist Bigfoot works up a new project alongside industry-leading mountaineering brand The North Face. Utilizing some of the brands classic silhouettes, including the Venture Shell Jacket, Balaclava Hoodie, Hotshot Backpack, and classic t-shirt, Bigfoot adds his own playful touch with a blend of signature green and brown hues, perfectly juxtaposed against a black backdrop. Unfortunately, like many stand-out The North Face drops, this lineup is expected to be an Asia release only. Stay tuned for further details.

LoL. I dunno who's wife let this fly? But dude has to be happy. Hopefully she likes NES too!

Step-by-step instructions are available over at Instructables, but the end product is a tabletop Nintendo emulator with both USB ports and authentic NES plugs. Plus, since it's PC-based as opposed to NES-based, the whole thing can function as a standard computer as well.

Mikkey Halsted feat. Miss Criss - "Yes Y'all" (Prod. by No ID)

Sneaker Pimps rolled through Chicago this past weekend, with the Clipse headlining and Chi-Town favorites such as Mikkey Halsted, Project Mayhem and Reno Chinati all featured on the bill. I missed Reno's set and only caught the last leg of Project Mayhem's, so if anyone has any video footage of this, please share.

Mikk performed a handful of never-before-heard tracks, including "I'm The Man" (prod. by SC) and "Zoom", which had the crowd even more anxious to hear what's in store with his debut, Chicago: The Photo Album. The track above is a potential first single from The Photo Album (at least I'd like to see it), produced by No ID entitled "Yes Y'all". It features his sister Miss Criss - and there's also a remix floating around featuring The Cool Kids. Below find "They Shootin", which is a joint he performs over Nas' "Made You Look", and after the jump is the No ID-produced "Karma"

Turning Music Into Dollars at Sony/ATV

MARTY BANDIER, 68, chief executive of the music publishing giant Sony/ATV, is leaning back, hands locked across his midsection, as he takes stock of Mike Posner, a 21-year-old college student sitting in front of him in a black T-shirt and black jeans. Mr. Bandier is deciding whether the time has come to cut a deal with him.

Sony already has a recording contract with Mr. Posner, and Mr. Bandier is weighing whether he should lock up publishing rights as well, which would allow the company to collect fees every time Mr. Posner’s songs are played on the radio, in movies or in commercials, or are downloaded as a ring tone on phones.

Mr. Posner yanks a computer from his backpack, plugs it into Mr. Bandier’s stereo system and hits “play.” A deep, pounding bass shakes the floor and the windows vibrate. Mr. Posner sings along and waves his hands in the air while Mr. Bandier bounces up and down in his chair.

“I’ve been singing for a year and a half,” Mr. Posner says when the music ends. “And I recorded that song in my mother’s basement.” Mr. Bandier, beaming, signs Mr. Posner that very day.

Converse Jack Purcell Racearound - Black

Yesterday, we gave you a look at an interesting new velcro strap version of the Converse Jack Purcell model designed by Ian Ginoza, and now we get a look at another alternate version of the classic style. Known as the Jack Purcell Racearound, this installment of the series gives the shoe one of its most stylish looks yet. The Racearound features a high cut with a sleek silhouette and a black leather upper. The design keeps it pretty simple with the only accents coming by way of some white contrast stitching and a white midsole. Those in search of a simple shoe with some subtle flavor can find the Jack Purcell Racearound now at the Converse online store, as well as at select retailers.

5 Rappers Who Should Sign to Cash Money

Stole from HHU, via. Complex.

Cash Money is an army, better yet…an army made up of washed-up recruits. Earlier this week, Bow Wow shocked the rap world when he announced that he has signed a new deal with Baby and Slim’s iconic New Orleans label. And a few months ago, Philly rapper Freeway also announced that he has inked a deal with CMR. Who’s next?

Since the label has started inviting refugees from other labels to join it’s roster, we decided to suggest some other artists in need of a career boost who could benefit from getting down with Cash Money. Check out the fake album covers and details behind our proposed projects.

Nike Air Griffey Max 1 - Anthracite/Black/Hot Red

A lot of sneakerheads were very excited about the return of the Air Griffey Max 1 in its original Black/Fresh Water and Royal/Volt colorways and from the initial feedback, it appears that this new version will be just as eagerly embraced when it hits stores this fall. The shoe sports a Black leather/suede upper with a White midsole and some splashes of Hot Red spread throughout. As with the others, there are some personal Ken Griffey Jr. touches like the large White number 24 on the ankle strap and the baseball design on the bottom of the outsole. This new colorway is expected to arrive at select retailers in October, but as usual, Osneaker has some pairs in stock early, so act fast if you want to be among the first to be rocking these beauties.

Britain publishes more UFO files, but few answers

The deputy commander of a U.S. Air Force base in England was baffled by what he'd seen: bright, pulsing lights in the night sky.

Britain's defense ministry couldn't explain it either, but concluded that the unidentified flying object posed no threat.

The National Archives on Monday released the government's complete file on the "Rendlesham Forest Incident" of December 1980, one of Britain's most famous UFO sightings.

It was among more than 4,000 pages posted online Monday documenting 800 alleged encounters during the 1980s and 1990s. Over the past three years the Ministry of Defense has been gradually releasing previously secret UFO papers after facing Freedom of Information demands.
