A hefty batch of Stickum - courtesy of wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff - was necessary for Ice Cube to merge the hard-edge pop culture courtesy of gangsta rap from N.W.A with the arrogant mystique of the (Oakland) Los Angeles Raiders....and his ambitious game plan stalls before reaching the end zone.

Part of the ongoing ESPN Films 30 for 30 series, Ice Cube weaves the legacy of the iconic Compton-based rap group that he was a founding member - and had its original run from 1986 to 1991 - with the spike prints of the Raider Nation during the May 1982 to June 1995 L.A. years. But the "Silver and Black" already carried a boulder on their shoulders through managing partner Al Davis, who was at the height of his powers as a renegade in the stodgy club of NFL ownership and had the victories on the field and - most importantly - in the courtroom to slam the pigskin in the faces of any suit from the league office in New York City.

Even the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL tried to ride the crest of the outlaws by changing their team colors to those donned by the Raiders. And though Ice Cube does a tremendous job in chronicling the rise of N.W.A, it is a tenuous claim that wearing gear with the colors and logo was anything different than the decision by Kings' owner Bruce McNall. Interviews with a top PR staffer for the Raiders, McNall and a combative Davis covers this issue from interesting angles.

That by the time the Raiders were relocating back to Oakland, McNall's empire was crumbling and N.W.A had imploded like a major arena rock band gets lost in the mix, but the respect Ice Cube has for the team drives the closing minutes. In the end, Ice Cube is a fan - in 2009, he recorded a song for the Raiders - which helps carry the best segments of the documentary, with the remainder seemingly setting the stage for the planned movie on the life and times of the group and to bring renewed focus on his tireless work over a number of years to release a new N.W.A studio album.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great Documentary!!!! 12 de mayo de 2010

I have watched every one of the ESPN "30 for 30" documentaries that have been shown on TV so far, and of them all, I'd rank STRAIGHT OUTTA LA 2nd behind only the one pertaining to the downfall of the USFL.

STRAIGHT OUTTA LA is awesome if you're a Raiders or N.W.A. fan (I'm neither), but equally as awesome if you're just a fan of football and/or hip-hop (I love both). It's also entertaining if you just love solid documentary film-making or culturally relevant informative documentaries.

This doc is about the Oakland Raiders NFL team moving to Los Angeles in the early 80's, and how they were embraced by the city of LA.....specifically, and more significantly, the impoverished minority citizens of South Central, Watts, etc (some, like Ice Cube & Ice T, who would later become the founders of West Coast hip-hop and Gangsta Rap) who finally had a team that appealed to them.

The Raiders were a hard-nosed, by any means necessary bunch team that resonated with the culture of inner-city, non-mainstream LA at the time. This doc really hits on how the Raiders helped LA, LA helped the Raiders, how the Raiders inspired and became one of the calling cards for early West Coast rap groups like N.W.A., and how these rap groups turned the Raiders Silver & Black brand and logo into a country-wide phenomenon.

Ultimately, their were negative consequences from the Raiders brand becoming associated with gangs and violence, but this documentary really focuses and hits on everything important that occurred during the Raiders stay in Los Angeles from the early 80's through the early to mid 90's.

In the end, when the team stopped winning on the field everything fell apart. But the real winners are us, the fans, who get the pleasure of watching this documentary. Ice Cube did an amazing job with this Documentary, and I strongly recommend everyone buy and watch this!!!!

As a "Superfan", I could not be more delighted with the production, context and FLAVOR of this beautiful epic on the days when L.A. and the Raiders were entertwined as one. Very moving to anyone who lived and witnessed first hand, the image both shared during those days, and even now it's etched in the memories of the DIE-HARDS!! A must see for any true Raiders fan."RAIDERS FOR LIFE".

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Somewhat disappointing... 13 de mayo de 2010

This is worth watching but probably not worth buying. It was a great idea for a documentary and Ice Cube was certainly the guy to do it. The problem in my mind was that the connections between Hip Hop and the Franchise were somewhat disjointed in the delivery and a little too crammed.

Part (most) of this is because Ice Cube was handicapped with only about 45 minutes to work with and trying to break down a pop culture phenomenon's tie in with a franchise as influencial as the Raiders really needs closer to two (if not more).

It was an interesting story and as somebody who grew up in the 80's, the Los Angeles Raiders were the Raiders that I knew first (as opposed to the Oakland Raiders). The commentary from Davis and his marketing people, along with former players was interesting but, again, there simply wasn't enough of it.

I've seen the VH1 documentary on NWA and enjoyed it a great deal because it was much more comprehensive. I've seen a few specials on the Raiders and heard them discussed ad nauseum - I find both topics really fascinating but unfortunately this documentary just doesn't get enough of each.

Unless you're a huge Raiders fan and feel the need to collect this, it's just not long enough to offer a huge amount of insight into what happened with the Raiders' exit from LA. I guess I'm comparing this to my favorite 30 for 30 - The U.
1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Terrible.. 14 de agosto de 2014

Terrible... This doc is mostly about rap and not near enough about the RAIDERS. You would think, watching this, that NWA turned the Raiders into bad*sses. That's definitely not the case. The Raiders had been bad dudes since the late 60's/early 70's. The only thing NWA did was create a "gangsta" environment and increase sales for the brand Starter. Also, because of gangstas and rap, i couldn't wear my Raiders gear to middle or high school. This is the reason i don't want the Raiders back in L.A. Its not a fad, its the RAIDERS!!!! Instead of this, look for 30 for 30 Bo Knows, A Football Life: Al Davis and America's game: Raiders: 1976, 1980 and 1983. Also, pick up the dvd History of the Oakland Raiders. Super cheap and over 3 hours long!!!!
