With an eye for capturing human emotion, dramatic storytelling and great use of contrast, photographer Brian Smale brings you into two worlds of tension and oppression. West Coast Hip Hop legend Ice Cube and Da Lench Mob are depicted through Brian's lens with great power as he channels the attitude of the crew as rebels to America. The serious labor-intensive and industrial atmosphere of Alabama chain gangs is portrayed with drama as Brian chooses the right moments, perspective and facial expressions which tell the story of what goes on within prisoners caught up in a daily journey of survival.

Check out a 2015 interview with Ice Cube with KCRW who reflect with him about his history in film and the movie Straight Outta Compton, taking the tension of inner-city America and turning it into a legendary and multi-faceted career.
