30. '30 for 30: Straight Outta L.A.'
This 2010 entry in ESPN's 30 for 30 series traces the rise and fall of both of two aggressive Los Angeles landmarks: N.W.A and the L.A. Raiders. Director Ice Cube isn't an entirely objective voice, but he deserves credit for weaving several threads – the Crips and Bloods, the crack-cocaine epidemic, Raiders owner Al Davis battling with the NFL – into a narrative that's deeper than music or sports. Not just a lively portrait of L.A. in the Eighties and early Nineties, but a look at a worldwide phenomenon: His group turned silver-and-black Starter jackets into a nationwide fashion trend that transcended what team you root for.
