Straight Outta Compton

December 14, 2011

Back in the day I was a big N.W.A. fan (I was particularly partial to “Gangsta Gangsta”). Since N.W.A.’s heyday, its members have moved on. Eazy-E is dead, and in addition to a solo career, Ice Cube became (I think) a sitcom star or something.

Anyway, I came across this great video of Ice Cube discussing the Eames house in Los Angeles. Turns out that pre-N.W.A. Ice Cube studied architectural drafting. How gangsta is that?

His description of which L.A. freeways are “bourgy” and which are “gangsta” is also particularly worthwhile.

    An appreciation for Eames forms…and Coco’s form. Poetic.
