I could make that title rhyme with NWA…
This video made my day. While my favorite ep of MTV Cribs is Ice-T showing off his retractable roof (no wait, that’s a lie, my all-time fave Cribs was when Redman showed off his de la casa “bachelor’s crib, don’t even have a coffee table” with the screen-less screen door, his dollah box and his cousin asleep on the floor), I think Ice Cube explaining Charles and Ray Eames’ house is a new favorite house tour classic:
Erika’s favorite line is “this is going green, 1949 style, bitch.” I think mine is ”they was doin’ mash-ups before mash-ups even existed.”
I love the way Cube gets to the point, doing an excellent job of describing this iconic mid-century modern house with such eloquence.
To take a run down memory lane and see how Redman was living, check this out. The dollar box does come in handy, and you should have one in the house.
