Gayle also feature segments and information about the Oakland Raider documentary entitled, "Straight Outta LA" produced by rapper, actor, director and movie producer Ice Cube for ESPN. According to the May 11, 2010 television review by Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times Television Critic, "...Ice Cube's highly watchable film about what might be called the aesthetic intersection of the Raiders - back in the 1980s and '90s, when they were the Los Angeles Raiders, after and before they were the Oakland Raiders - and Southern California hip-hop as embodied by N.W.A., the platinum-selling, hard-edged Compton-based group to which he belonged. And though it doesn't deeply develop or substantially support all the ideas it advances, it does set up interesting resonances. Although Ice Cube sets his tale solidly within the context of the time - of Reaganomics and ghetto drug wars - this is less a story of events than it is of image and self-image whose only tangible measure is the rate by which N.W.A.'s adoption of the team's brand gear and black-and-silver color scheme increased sales of Raiders merchandise. Oddly, among all the real accomplishment recounted here, on the football field and in the recording studio, this is largely a story about the power of design. With a different name, a different logo or less dramatic colors - "Purple and gold," says N.W.A.'s MC Ren, "I don't think that would have looked good on us" - this might not be a story at all...."
