Iconic South Central Los Angeles emcee-turned-actor Ice Cube returned to his Rap roots this year, releasing I Am The West in September. The onetime member of N.W.A. and Westside Connection is maintaining his focus on music, by launching a new clothing line, SOLO, that has headphones sewn into hooded sweatshirts.
Although the line is said to make its retail debut next year, Cube is presently showing fans a preview of his plans at SoloByCube.com. The earbuds are said to be washing machine-safe, prompting a new technology in the field. Cube's N.W.A. brother Dr. Dre has found great success in his collaboration with Monster in Beats By Dre headphones.
