You’ll likely see this all over the art and design blogosphere in the next few days, but it’s too cool not to share. Apparently, before becoming an emcee and actor, Ice Cube studied architectural drafting, and it turns out, he’s a big fan of mid-century super couple Ray and Charles Eames.
You simply gotta check out the video below:
Core77 quotes an interview with Ice Cube from the NYTimes,
I had learned about [the Eames’] when I was studying architectural drafting. Back then, I didn’t know I was going to make money. So being that they put together a house in two days and used discarded materials—something about their style caught on. As I got older, I could equate it to sampling. I see that’s what we were doing, taking discarded records from the ’60s and ’70s and revamping them.
