Atlanta Falcons' RB Steven Jackson | The Genesis

Having amassed more than 10,000 rushing yards over the course of his career, Steven Jackson has joined an elite club of fellow running backs. However, having just turned 30--an age where running backs particularly face a precipitous decline--Jackson finds himself at a crossroads: new team (Atlanta Falcons after nine years with the St. Louis Rams) and new expectations (contributor on a playoff contender instead of starring role on a struggling team). Here, Life + Times meets up with Jackson at his homes in his native Las Vegas and Atlanta, gaining insight into this new phase of his career.

Nipsey Hussle | Freestyles, Speaks on "Crenshaw" Profit, & Reveals Single off "Victory Lap"

The walking blueprint for independent artists, Nipsey Hussle, has been making noise in the hip hop community by selling his free #Crenshaw mixtape for $100 a pop — and stopped by Sway in the Morning to talk all about it.

Nip's goal was to sell 1,000 copies of his project, and ended up exceeding his target. Jay Z even reached out and purchased 100 copies, along with Jeff Clanagan.

Although his support was overwhelming, Nipsey tells Sway that he received a lot of backlash, specifically from a radio station in Los Angeles.

"Contagious" says Nipsey. That's the book that inspired his proud2pay campaign. Now, what does he plan to do with the money he's received?

"Marketing," he says.

On a personal note, Nip opens up about his dating life. Tracy G asks him what his ideal girl is, and he responded by saying...

"My team is solid, but I'm single." Nip admits. "Somebody solid, honest sincere... more so, their spirit has to be in vibration with mine."

Nipsey's album, Victory Lap, is coming soon, and his first single, Rap Ni**as drops at the top of the year.

"It's not for radio, but it needs to be said." Hussle says, while describing his first single.

Following our Sway in the Morning tradition, we couldn't let this LA entrepreneur leave with out kicking a freestyle!
Watch below as he lights the mic on fire.

"It's easy to tell 'garbage' music. Easy to tell 'great' records. The 'good' records are confusing."

#TGIF The Warrior Women of Asgarda

Katerina Tarnovska is a Ukrainian preschool teacher, a kickboxing world champion and a self-proclaimed descendent of the legendary warrior women of the Amazon. In 2002 she founded Asgarda, a martial art exclusively for women that is inspired by the tribal traditions of the Scythian Amazons. In the past decade, more than 1,000 ladies have been entrusted with the teachings of the Asgarda, which Katerina says is the only fighting style specifically tailored to the female form.

Welcome to Hell... In Norway

Hell is a quaint little village in Norway that's the resting place of 1,600 souls. There are red-roofed houses, a post office, a grocery store, even a church. It literally freezes over during the winter, which is yet another example of why its pun-friendly name draws tourists throughout the year. Weirdly enough, hell means "luck" in Norwegian, but the locals play up their association with the netherworld. When you pull into the train station, there's a sign that reads HELL GODS -- EXPEDITION, and the town's most famous native, Mona Grudt, who won the 1990 Miss Universe beauty pageant, proudly called herself "the beauty queen from Hell."

Then there's the annual Blues in Hell Festival, which was founded by Kjell Inge Brovoll, better known as "Hell Boss." This year, the festival brought a host of legendary American blues singers to the peaceful village, including Sugar Pie DeSanto, who is best described as a more unhinged and modern version of her late duet partner and childhood friend, Etta James.

Sugar Pie was my ticket to Hell. I first saw the 78-year-old, 4'11" spitfire on New Year's Eve 2012—she hopped on the stage, kicked off her stiletto heels, and gyrated with the intensity of a woman 55 years her junior.

When I asked if I could take some photos of Sugar Pie, her manager asked me to accompany them to Detroit, where she played Aretha Franklin's Christmas party. A year later, I got offered the chance to go to Hell with Sugar Pie. How could I have said anything other than "Hell, yes"?

PlayStation 4 | The Best Place to Play

PlayStation 4 launches on November 15th!

Mission RS: The Electric Superbike of the Future (Teaser)

As compared to their gasoline counterparts, electric motors have near-instant torque and linear power delivery, both important qualities when pushing a motorcycle to the limits of grip. Motherboard recently got to see just how effective the electric RS could be when we were given a demo by a former pro racer around a private race track in upstate New York.

Given the slow growth of the electric vehicle market and resultant charging infrastructure—it's about as straightforward a chicken-egg scenario as one can get—can high-end electric vehicles break the stalemate? That's been Tesla's plan, with a goal of not just building electric cars, but better cars. Mission's plan is similar—build the best electric bike possible, and those that can afford it won't have to worry about compromises. For EV builders, it's important to prove to the market that electric vehicles can compete, something the RS does well. But the huge question is when the technology will trickle down to cheaper models and more potential buyers.

Racist Sororities at the University of Alabama

In 1963, in the midst of the heated debate over the desegregation of American schools, the University of Alabama announced that it would for the first time allow African Americans to enroll. Fifty years later, in September 2013, two University of Alabama sororities rejected an African American student because of her race. As a result, an anti-racist student group called the Mallet Assembly and other members of the community took action to prevent segregation within the university's Greek system.

The Japanese Love Industry

Japan is a country that is dying—literally. Japan has more people over the age of 65 and the smallest number of people under the age of 15 in the world. It has the fastest negative population growth in the world, and that's because hardly anyone is having babies. In these difficult times, the Japanese are putting marriage and families on the back burner and seeking recreational love and affection as a form of cheap escape with no strings attached. We sent Ryan Duffy to investigate this phenomenon, which led him to Tokyo's cuddle cafes and Yakuza-sponsored prostitution rings.

Black Bike Week | Documentary | VICE

Black Bike Week is an annual bike rally that takes place in South Carolina over Memorial Day weekend. Up to half a million predominantly African American bikers and revelers descend on the seaside vacation town of Myrtle Beach for several days of riding and partying. Each year the traffic comes to a standstill as the streets fill with brightly customized sports bikes, their riders taking advantage of the state's "no helmet" law to perform burnouts and stunts up and down the main strip along the seafront.

Hordes of women—known as "huggers"—also flock to Myrtle Beach for the event, hoping to be picked up for a ride, and maybe something more. A girl will often perform the "pillion clapping" move as a passenger—essentially twerking on the back of the bike. Unfortunately, the combination of partying and biking without a helmet isn't an especially safe one, and every year there are people who don't make it home. The event also attracts a ton of prostitutes, but more and more women are starting to ride their own bikes and each year an increasing number of female biker gangs show up for the party.

Janelle Monáe ft. Miguel | PrimeTime (Official Video)

PrimeTime is a love story based on the early adventures of Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monáe) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel.) The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi's humble beginnings as a "cyber-server" at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class "show droids" to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City. Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment. In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club.

#TBT Best of Rodney Mullen plus TED TALK

The last thing Rodney Mullen, the godfather of street skating, wanted were competitive victories. In this exuberant talk he shares his love of the open skateboarding community and how the unique environments it plays in drive the creation of new tricks -- fostering prolific ingenuity purely for passion's sake. (Filmed at TEDxUSC.)


Known as the godfather of street skating, Rodney Mullen is one of the most prolific and influential skateboarders in history. Despite initial objections, his father eventually gave in and purchased Rodney's first skateboard in 1977, when he was ten years old, on the condition that he would always wear his safety pads and stop skating the moment he was injured. That same year he entered his first contest and came in third; then, over the next three years, he would place first in every contest he entered -- nearly thirty in all. In 1980, after winning the Oasis Pro competition in San Diego, Rodney began his professional skating career with the Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade. He would go on to invent tricks, like the flat-ground ollie, Kicklip, Heelflip, and 360 Flip that would completely revolutionize the art of skating. In 2002, Mullen won the Transworld Readers' Choice Award for Skater of the Year and founded the Almost skateboard company. In 2003, he wrote an autobiography titled The Mutt: How to Skateboard and Not Kill Yourself. "Rodney Mullen is, for me, hands down the best skater we've got."

Munchies: Alexei Zimin

All the stories you hear about Russians and drinking are true; anyone who says otherwise is a liar. And most of the stories you hear about chefs and drinking are true, too. With that in mind, Moscow's Alexei Zimin was everything we hoped a Russian chef would be. We had a free night in Moscow after shooting an episode of Far Out in Siberia, so we got in touch with Alexei and he said to come by his restaurant, Ragout. There are actually two Ragouts: the smaller, original location, and the second one, near Prospekt Mira, next to one of the stadiums from the Moscow Olympics. That's where this Munchies episode begins.

To call the new Ragout a mere restaurant would be an understatement; it's a fine dining room, a casual cafe, a cooking school, a bookstore, and more. Alexei studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and worked under chefs like Michel Gerard and Raymond Blanc before opening Ragout with fellow cook Ilya Shalev. They filter French technique through their Russian sensibilities and take influences from their travels for everything they do—which, in Alexei's case, also includes being the editor of Eda, a great Russian food magazine, organizer of the Moscow Festival of Food, cookbook author, and television show host. It's hard to imagine how he does it, if the hangovers he gave us were any indication. Here's what we can remember: after Ragout we went to Bar Bontempi and met the owner, Mitya Borisov, a semi-legendary figure with eyes the color of Merlot. Then it was off to 32.05, a cafe/bar in the middle of a park where Alexei showed us his amazing singing voice, and then to Noor Bar, a cocktail bar as good as any in New York. At that point things become hazy, but we can recall one of Alexei's friends knocking out our field producer with one punch, and the night ending over bottles of vodka at Jean-Jacques, a great late-night bar, neither of which are on camera, unfortunately. Be careful when you go drinking in Moscow.
