    Ice Cube – that's O'Shea Jackson to the tax man- has come a long way, with his hardcore, gangsta rap past with NWA far, far, far in the rear view as he makes family comedies and action films as a legit Hollywood actor. The documentary, Straight Outta L.A. will make its global debut at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival this April. It will be screened on April 23 and will make its television debut on May 11 on ESPN.

    The doc has an interesting viewpoint, subject matter and narrative, hence, why it's being aired on a sports channel and not MTV or BET! It chronicles the rise of the Oakland Raiders from an Oakland teak to an L.A.-based team, thanks to a 1982 court decision. Ice Cube and NWA claimed that they popularized the team by donning its black and silver attire.

    Would you rather watch a rap documentary about NWA's rise, as opposed to their influence on the Raiders' rise?
