STRAIGHT OUTTA L.A.

Directed by Ice Cube
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 51 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE STRAIGHT OUTTA L.A.

In 1982, Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis moved his team to Los Angeles, where they were welcomed by fans from Compton to Hollywood. Ice Cube was growing up in South Central L.A.—a different world defined by gangs, drugs, and nascent hip-hop. By the middle of the decade, the Raiders were the toast of the town, and Ice Cube's group N.W.A. had taken the music world by storm. Forging an unlikely relationship between music and sports, N.W.A. embraced the Raiders' image, swagger, and style, forever linking the Raiders' heyday in L.A. with the emergence of gangsta rap.

Set to an old-school hip-hop soundtrack, this energetic documentary features interviews with L.A. Raiders legends like Marcus Allen and Howie Long as well as West Coast rap icons including Ice-T and Snoop Dogg. Lifelong Raiders fan Ice Cube also turns the camera on himself to offer a vivid remembrance of a time when the troubled city of Los Angeles found its kindred spirit in an outlaw football team and discovered its voice in the growing rap scene.
