UNDRCRWN “Don’t Squeeze The Juice” Mugs and Prints

Today marks the 20th anniversary of THE white Bronco car chase, led by OJ Simpson.

 What we remember are the images of a white Ford Bronco interrupting the NBA Finals between the Houston Rockets and New York Knicks.

Being forced to watch the game in a small box in the upper right hand corner of our TV sets with the sounds of news reporters giving us the play by play of the car chase instead of the sounds of the game. These were moments that left an undeniable mark on the ’90s, and because of that we’ve created a limited edition”Don’t Squeeze The Juice” print coffee mug.

Only 32 prints & mugs available only at www.UNDRCRWN.com

Nike SB Presents: “Brotherhood of the Feet: Europe vs. Brasil – Friendly”

To celebrate the “Brotherhood of the Feet,” Nike SB Europe team riders travelled to Brasil, where they hooked up with Luan Oliveira and Fabio Cristiano to skate local spots in Rio and Sao Paulo.
The crew of Wieger van Wageningen, Kyron Davis, Maxime Geronzi, Denny Pham and Dani Lebron, provide perspective on what it’s like to roll through the football-infused streets of Brasil.

The World Cup is off to a rousing start in Rio and Nike SB celebrates with this video highlighting some of the great skateboarding spots in Brasil. Nike SB sent five of its premier European riders — Wieger van Wageningen, Denny Pham, Maxime Geronzi, Dani Lebron and Kyron Davis — to the epicenter of football to visit their Brasilian brethren, Luan Oliveira and Fabio Cristiano.

Brasil is a country most commonly identified with its rich and passionate football culture, but a similar nationwide fervour is also reserved for skateboarding. Football and skateboarding are indeed very different, yet in Brasil they are both intrinsically linked by their birthplace – the streets.

In April, the crew packed their bags and traveled to Brasil to sample the atmosphere of skateboarding visiting the cities of Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro in the run up to the summer of football.

Brasil evokes the true spirit of skateboarding: community, fun and friendship. From Luan Oliveira to the kid with the beat-up board at the spot trying to learn rock fakies on the spine ramp, everyone engages, respects and looks out for one another. Given the more alternative context of this skateboarding trip, it seemed fitting to hand pick the crew on the basis of an inherent link to an insatiable appetite for football.

This film is a visual narrative of their journey through the streets of these two unique cities in one of the most vibrant, welcoming and culturally exciting countries on earth.

Rick Rubin cooking up some “New Vocal Ideas” for Kanye West’s new album

The legendary Rick Rubin has confirmed that he is currently working on a new album with Kanye West and is now looking at “vocal ideas” for the album. This follows up last year’s Yeezus album and should be released sometime later this year.  Rubin confirmed the news on in a  conversation with BBC Radio’s Zane Lowe. 


“There were loads of great ideas and there were many many tracks and we listened to everything together,” said Rubin on his first listen of the Yeezus demos. “He originally came over and said ‘I wanna come play you my new album’ and I thought we’d be listening to a finished album. Then we listened to about three hours of music, most of which didn’t have vocals, and at the end I was like ‘wow, so what’s it gonna be?’ I’m thinking it’s a year away and he was like ‘well, I’m putting it out in like 5-6 weeks’. It was just a funny conversation because it was completely normal to him, it’s just the way he works… today, Kanye West is coming in and we’re starting looking at vocal ideas for things for the next album.”

 

This news follows Q-Tips annoucement in December that he and Rubin were working on the new Kanye West album. The full interview with Rick Rubin will be available on the BBC iPlayer from 7p.m. GMT on Monday, June 16 and broadcast in four parts (Monday-Thursday) on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Watch the trailer for the conversation here.
