Ice Cube - Ice Cube Makes Architecture Film

Rapper Ice Cube has created a short film to pay homage to California's classic architecture.
Ice Cube, real name O'Shea Jackson, enrolled in drafting classes at the Phoenix Institute of Technology in Arizona when he was 18 but abandoned his artistic dreams to pursue a career in music.
And now the hitmaker has gone back to his roots by shooting Pacific Standard Time: Art in La 1945-1980 to show fans the true beauty of such buildings as the historic Eames House.
He tells Nme.com, "The Eames (architects) made structure and nature one. This is going green 1949 style, b**ch. Believe that... It's not about the pieces, it's how the pieces work together, you know, taking something that already exists and making it something special… kinda like sampling.
"A lot of people think LA is just eyesore after eyesore… so what? They don’t know the La I know. One man's eyesore is another man's paradise."
He isn't the only star paying tribute to architects Charles and Ray Eames onscreen - James Franco has signed on to narrate a new film about the brothers after his former college professor at Ucla in Los Angeles suggested he would be perfect to voice the film.
The 127 Hours star is now part of director Jason Cohn's new movie Eames: The Architect & The Painter.
