Last March, we published a story about rapper Cesar "Crhymes" Tellez allegedly catching a UFO on tape while filming a music video in southeast San Diego. The story ended up getting some national buzz, with Tellez even appearing on an episode of the Travel Channel series Paranormal Paparazzi

Now, Tellez is turning the sighting into a brand, Aliens in the Hood. Through crhymes.com, he's been selling hoodies bearing a trademark alien cartoon drawn by Robert "Robzilla" Herring. He's launched a website, aliensinthehood.net, and recorded an Aliens in the Hood theme song, which you can listen to at reverbnation.com/crhymes619. ---

So far, he says he's sold sweaters to people in places as far away as Germany and Japan. 

"I'm planning on expanding the brand by introducing new items to the merchandise, such as long-sleeve tees, beenies [and] stickers," Tellez says in a Facebook message, noting that he won't just sell clothing. "I am currently working on an all-original music compilation for ‘Aliens in the Hood' as well.... The whole thing will be like a hip-hop sci-fi audio movie."

Watch the video below to see the evidence of the alleged UFO for yourself:
