Cube Raises AIDS AwarenessLegendary West Coast rapper, actor and television show producer Ice Cube has joined forces with a Los Angeles –based artwork company that will reproduce personally autographed artwork from Cube, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the unique pieces supporting Los Angeles County AIDS and HIV support services nonprofit organization Minority AIDS Project as well.
RareInk – a charity-based company – and Ice Cube have teamed to creatively connect fans closer to their favorite artists with elaborate renderings of Cube’s album covers and photos along with specially selected songs that will be packaged with the original works. In a statement, Ice Cube shared his excitement being RareInk’s first showcased artist.
The artwork will be available for sale on June 22 via RareInk’s website and will feature nine pieces from a collective of celebrated graphic and contemporary artists in limited run quantities. Highlights of the pieces include two renditions of Ice Cube’s 1990 solo debut AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted and a mural-styled piece depicting his 1992 hit single “It Was A Good Day.”
There are also two editions of artwork that will have Ice Cube’s actual paint-dipped hand prints. As an added comfort for collectors, each piece will come with a certificate of authenticity and an anti-counterfeit label on the back of the collections.
