Most mid-century modernism enthusiasts wouldn't throw a casual 'bitch' into their architectural tour, but then Ice Cube is not your average architecture scholar.

Did you know the world-renowned gangsta rapper originally studied architectural drafting? Zoinks!

Uploaded as part of the massive, multi-venue Southern California exhibition Pacific Standard Time, this short video follows the former N.W.A. member around his hometown of L.A., giving an insight into his favourite structures, and a lengthy lesson from Professor Cube on what made Charles and Ray Eames so dope. Believe that.
