Ice Cube took a few minutes out to speak on Al Davis’ death, the way he changed the NFL, pop culture, how he wanted to see the Raiders back on top, and bringing NFL back into LA. Rest in peace Al Davis.

“The Raiders were a rowdy bunch way before NWA,” rapper and former member Ice Cube said this morning in a phone interview with the NFL Network. “You know, what they showed to us was that you can be yourself and you can still win. You don’t have to conform always to the mainstream or to the status quo. You can come out be yourself, own it and you can win.”
