Everybody knows that the Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk movies this summer were huge successes for the Marvel franchise. Well here a fan took it one step further by creating his own Iron Man Replica Armor. The reactor core on the chest lights up and the eye lenses reflect light to block out identity theft!
" All the armor parts are fanmade out of glassfiber with strong and sharp details, then carefully painted in rich red and gold colour. The midsection armor and neckseal is made from flexible plastic, painted in rich red colours. The gloves are made of foam rubber. The helmet comes with see through eye lenses. The lenses reflect light and does not allow anyone to see your eyes. "
The armor is made to fit a person approx. size 6 -6.4 foot tall with from 32 - 38 inch waistline. Ideal size: 6.2 tall, 35 inch waistline, approx. 220 lbs.
Check out more info and detail on the armor Here!

This iPhone holster charges your iPhone on the go while you sip something to keep you going at Starbucks. This holster sports a battery concealed in its housing that, at full capacity, can give your iPhone a full boost. The downside however, after the juice is out of your holster you have to recharge it. Charging twice and then having to pay the jacked up iPhone talk plan...hmmm...you be the judge.
During the saundering month of July Nigo and company have been releasing a series of Baby Milo tees referencing various iconic themes.

Wow...this ish is crazy!
" For the past decade the search for a rare metal necessary in the manufacturing of Sony's Playstation game consoles has fueled a brutal conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. "
" 'Kids in Congo were being sent down mines to die so that kids in Europe and America could kill imaginary aliens in their living rooms,' said Ex-British Parliament Member Oona King. "...

New Video from the oddly paired duo off of their latest effort The Odd Couple.
Might we add that this short video was really cool. The theme of "relationships are dangerous" is a theme many of us struggle to grasp. Those that are unaware of the fact that getting into a relationship means giving a part of yourself to another being who is undoubtedly contemplating the fragility of your being is not to be forgotten. There is no sedative for the emotions that arise through human relations, just truth.
The heart killed himself. Not the woman.

Well here they are folks as we promised!!
Here is what ?uesto had to say about the whole thing going down:
" WORDS FROM THE MAN HIMSELF - QUESTLOVE
never let it be said that dreams don’t come true.
4 years ago i watched BAPE/reebok shower Pharrell with
all these kicks on the Sprite Liquid Mix Tour in the summer
i said to my stylist “when am i gonna get enough clout to get such an honor?”
there is many a milestone in my career, and i have to stay that this ish right here?
man oh man…
this is my FAVORITE part of my life.
my very own shoe.
i present the (h)Air ?uesto 1
this shoe was actually in the making about a year ago but i was so excited the first time around i included everything but the kitchen sink.
and it showed lol: 9 different skins, 13 colors. the shoe was literally mitched/matched (as are these but to a lesser extent)
i wanted something that screamed “!@#T!@#$#!@#$@#$@#~@$@#!!!!!” but left me a lil room to really go crazy for the other 4 down the line. (my cream de la creme is the 3rd shoe, i got a vision Doc Brown style Flux Capacitor style that im still perfecting and HOPEFULLY in two years they will find a way to come up with the material i need to make it work)
so in short (its late and im lucky that nike is letting me get away with this much)
the shoe comes out aug 1st. "

The headphones that "let you hear what you've been missing" have finally hit the market from your favorite Westside producer. We've heard about these for quite some time now and its good to see that you they've hit the market unlike some other DRE material that consumers have been waiting for.
"Dre and I have been developing these headphones for a while and in Monster we found a partner that could work with us to crystallize his vision and develop them to the quality level he expects,” said Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records. “Beats™ By Dr. Dre™ is yet another example of Interscope’s commitment to working together with its artists in developing new avenues to experience music."
Pick these up almost exclusively at Apple and Best Buy retail locations if you can shell out the $400 attached to the price tag...Yeah.
If you have been under a rock recently and haven't heard about the Rick Ross exposed story here it is.
" Ross (real name: William Leonard Roberts) was appointed a prison guard in December 1995 at a salary of $22,913.54, according to the below personnel record, which was provided to TSG by Jo Ellyn Rackleff, a DoC spokesperson. The rapper’s social security number is identical to that of the jail guard. According to the official document, Ross was earning $25,794.34 when he left the department in June 1997. After graduating from the DoC training academy, Ross was assigned to the South Florida Reception Center in Dade County (the lockup is one of three statewide that serves as an intake facility for new prisoners)."
See now...what the hell? These "Rappers" are reaching for the most obvious life that surrounds them in the sense that they can channel what they know, or front like they do. In this case "Ricky 'The Boss' Ross" channeled the stories of many hardened criminals and made a career out of it, TWICE.
The real rick ross knew noriega...not you. If he would have just bowed his head and admitted to being down with the Boys then maybe people wouldn't have ridiculed him so much. We mean, damn..even law enforcement goes crooked. Shoulda worked your angles buddy. You're a hustler, shoulda known that.
Here's some of "The Boss'" latest Mp3 based rhetoric

The release of the ALIFE x NaS collaborative t-shirts and lighters saw much fanfare and welcoming. Hot on the heels of that release is this current collaborative t-shirt set donning lyrics from veteran hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest. These shirts will also be sold at the Rock The Bells Tour featuring scheduled performances from the Tribe themselves!
The shirts display the first four bars of A Tribe Called Quest's song 'Excursions' off of their 1991 effort The Low End Theory!
For the record Steven Roberts is so non-economical! These shirts will be purchased and we will be buried in them. Enough said.
Giddy. Like schoolgirls.
Back in the days when I was a teenager
Before I had status and before I had a pager
You could find The Abstract listening to hip hop
My pops used to say, it reminded him of be-bop
I said, well daddy don't you know that things go in cycles
The way that Bobby Brown is just ampin like Michael
Its all expected, things are for the lookin
If you got the money, Quest is for the bookin
Come on everybody, let's get with the fly modes
Still got room on the truck, load the back boom
Listen to the rhyme, to get a mental picture
of this black man, through black woman victim
Why do I say that, cuz I gotta speak the truth man
Doing what we feel for the music is the proof and
Planted on the ground, the act is so together
Bonafied strong, you need leverage to sever
The unit, yes, the unit, yes, the unit called the jazz is
deliberatley cheered LP filled with streeet goods
You can find it on the rack in your record store (store)
If you get the record, then your thoughts are adored
and appreciated, cause we're ever so glad we made it
We work hard, so we gotta thank God
Dishin out the plastic, do the dance till you spastic
If you dis... it gets drastic
Listen to the rhymes, cuz its time to make gravy
If it moves your booty, then shake, shake it baby
All the way to Africa a.k.a. The Motherland (uh)
Stick out the left, then I'll ask for the other hand
That's the right hand, Black Man (man)
Only if you was noted as my man (man)
If I get the credit, then I'll think I deserve it
If you fake moves, don't fix your mouth to word it
Get in the zone of positivity, not negativity
Cuz we gotta strive for longevity
If you botch up, what's in that (ass) (what?)
A pair of Nikes, size ten-and-a-half (come on, come on)
Shirts can be pruchased at ALIFE Rivington Club NYC
