Ice Cube is a huge Raiders fan. The legendary rapper/actor/producer has always been vocal in support of the Silver and Black. He’s performed before a Raiders game at O.co Coliseum.
He wrote a Raiders rap song called “Come and get it (Raider Nation),” that has become a team anthem.
Ice Cube is certainly excited about this upcoming season, and did something to make 2015 training camp a little better.
Ice Cube set the Raiders up a private advance screening of “Straight Outta Compton,” a biopic about N.W.A., the revolutionary rap group featuring Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella that pioneered the gangster rap genre.
The movie premieres on Friday, but the Raiders got a chance to see the movie on Wednesday night. Ice Cube taped a personal message for the team before the movie began.

The Raiders clearly enjoyed the movie, which took the place of previously-scheduled meetings on Wednesday night. Several Raiders took to Twitter to laud the highly-anticipated film.
