When Raiders owner Al Davis beat the NFL in court and moved his team from Oakland to Los Angeles, he found a new legion of fans in the city's black and Hispanic populations at a time when gang warfare, immigration and the real estate boom were rapidly changing the city. During those 13 short seasons, the team's colors, aura and superstar players became a cultural phenomenon. As a football fan and member of legendary rap group NWA, Ice Cube found himself at the crossroads between the birthplace of hip-hop in Los Angeles and the bone-crunching intensity of the L.A. Raiders. NWA was at the heart of South Central Los Angeles' emerging gangsta rap scene and the group indentified with the Raiders' swagger and anti-establishment attitude. When NWA began wearing Raider jackets and hats, the silver and black exploded into a worldwide brand. As Snoop Dogg says in the film, "The hip-hop nation fueled the Raiders nation." Using interviews with Hall-of-Famers Marcus Allen, Howie Long and Raiders owner Al Davis, along with rap legends Ice-T, Chuck D and Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube — still a die-hard Raiders fan — looks back at the unlikely marriage between the NFL's rebel franchise and America's glamour capital!
