Diehard Oakland Raiders fan Ice Cube directed the ESPN 30 for 30 film Straight Outta L.A. that documented how Los Angeles reacted to the franchise’s move there between stints in Oakland, Calif.
Cube’s legendary Los Angeles-based rap group N.W.A. was influential in the Raiders’ growth in popularity around the world.
During his visit with Front Row on our Bristol, Conn. campus on Wednesday, Cube reflected on his favorite 30 for 30 films and other aspects about ESPN.
