Ice Cube's LA Vision...at the Eames

In this short video, Ice Cube waxes poetic about Los Angeles' attitude, highways, and landmarks.

Rolling down the street, the lyrical gangster shares his insider's view of LA, pointing out the differences between the "boojee" traffic on the 405 and the "gangster" traffic on the 110. He notes how growing up in South Central LA makes one resourceful, and visits the iconic Charles and Ray Eames home. Recalling his lessons learned while studying architectural drafting before becoming a rapper - "always have a plan" -, Cube calls out the details that make the home a visionary, early green statement between "nature and structure."
