Ice Cube to Sell Limited Edition Artwork, Raise Money for AIDS Charity

West Coast veteran Ice Cube has released an artwork series based on his signature albums and songs, with proceeds to benefit the Minority AIDS project.

The rapper/actor and one-time N.W.A. member has partnered with charity-focused art company RareInk available now. Cube will serve as both the company’s first artist and strategic advisor. “In the music business we take a hit song, sample part of it, and try to make another hit record with it,” Cube said in a statement. “In the same way, RareInk has taken my albums and turned them into amazing works of stand-alone art. The series is something I’m really proud of and I’m sure other recording artists are going to want to get involved, both for their fans and their charities.”

The artwork series includes nine limited-edition pieces to be sold exclusively on Large-scaled pieces range in price from $300 to $700, with the latter featuring Cube’s handprint.

Highlights include original artist reinterpretations of Ice Cube’s classic Amerikkka’s Most Wanted and The Predator album covers as well as a mural-themed piece based on his “It Was A Good Day” video. [See below]

“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.

The Minority AIDS Project is a nonprofit organization that provides HIV support services to the Los Angeles community.

Each piece of artwork will be hand-signed by Ice Cube. A DVD with signing and interview footage will also be included with each print. For more information visit here. —Lauren Carter
