Ice Cube Speaks On Al Davis Death
Ice Cube, a longtime Raiders fan, called into ESPN today to talk about the passing of Raiders own Al Davis, who died this weekend at the age of 82.
Last year, Ice Cube produced an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary called Straight Outta LA that showcased the relationship between the Raiders franchise and the success Cube’s rap group N.W.A. in the late ’80’s and earlier ’90’s.
“I remember him inviting me and my wife into his office [for Straight Outta LA],” said Cube.
“Showing us all his mementos, all the things from the sixties and when he started the Raiders. And he had everything laid out.”
“For the most part, he’s always been a player’s owner, and a guy who’s really just all about football.”
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Cube was the last person to interview Davis before his death.
