Few people know that before he became famous with hip-hop and the movies O’Shea Jackson (AKA Ice Cube) studied architectual design in Arizona back in the late 80’s.
All the more fitting for this new video in which Cube tours L.A. dicusing its architecture and, in partcular, the work of the innovative husband and wife designer team Charles and Ray Eames.
The video was made by the Getty Institiute for Pacfic Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980, which is a their current collection of exbitions of art and architecture in Southern California during the postwar years. You can read an interview with Cube about the Eames’ work HERE and watch the video below.
