Ice Cube Unveils Minority AIDS Art Project


Ice Cube has hooked up with artist Mark Sgarsbossa and Rare Ink for a new art project that will feature limited edition artistic interpretations/murals of the rap veteran's music. The venture's first installment of the autographed pieces was revealed yesterday, and will sold exclusively on RareInk.com. A portion of the profits will go to Minority AIDS project.

“Expanding the interaction with fans of my music by offering limited edition, signed artwork that they are able to share and enjoy with their friends and family is something I feel my fans deserve. Not only does RareInk create amazing pieces of art that bring my albums and songs to life but a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Minority AIDS Project, an organization I have worked with over the past two decades,” Cube said of the cause.

According to Necole Bitchie, the project will feature depictions of Cube's best know songs. In the video below, Ice Cube and Sgarsbossa talk about the first mural, an interpretation of "It Was A Good Day." Yay yay indeed.
