Straight Outta Compton
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.
