Ice Cube is a techie!

Mark Trammell interviewed Ice Cube today for the SF music blog Attacked by Jackets and I was there to record the moment. (There are more photos over at linoleumjet.com.)

An excerpt from the interview:

I was writing raps on the laptop at one point in my career, you know, earlier in my career. I think it’s always kinda been there. You know, when we started making music, they had one drum machine. It was an Oberheim DMX and that was it. Once all these different samplers came out, you know, that kinda turned us, somewhat, into techies. We had to go get the new drum machine to help us make better music. So, it just started expanding our minds on technology and what we had to do to make it work.
