This week’s installment of ESPN’s 30 for 30 series (airs tonight at 8), Straight Outta LA, examines the intersection between sports and culture, or more, specifically the Los Angeles Raiders and gangster rap. Ice Cube is the driving force behind the film, with some help from our friends at No Mas. Once again they’ve teamed up with animator extraordinaire James Blagden to bring some of Ice Cube’s words alive. We’ve slept a bit on the whole 30 for 30 series, but hopefully you’ve been watching. It’s probably the best thing Bill Simmons has ever been involved in, @celticschants notwithstanding.
Blagden’s famed Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No video is after the jump, because it’s pretty much my favorite thing ever.
