Yet another Pacific Standard Time celebrity video, but this one features the unlikely pairing of rapper Ice Cube (aka O’Shea Jackson) with the architecture of Charles and Ray Eames.

The NWA-affiliated rapper says the Eames architecture is partly about “mashups before mashups existed.” Then again, one usually calls them assemblage if they’s not digital, but we’ll let that go. Also, interesting fact: Ice Cube was once an architecture student.

But that’s not where the lyricism ends. “In a world full of McMansions, where the structure takes up all the land, the Eames may structure and nature one. This is going green 1949 style, bitch. Believe that.”
