Did you know that before becoming a rapper, Ice Cube studied architectural drafting? How cool is that? In this video, Cube gives his own kind of love letter to the Eames (“they was doing mash-ups before mash-ups even exist”).
The video is a public service announcement promoting Pacific Standard Time—a mega collaboration between museums affiliated with the Getty in Southern California. Over the past 10 years, these various institutions have archived and researched the L.A. art scene between 1945 and 1980. The exhibits are running from October 2011 –March 2012.
