When we first saw James Blagden's animated piece about Dock Ellis, we couldn't help but watch it a skillion times a day—No Mas' heavy back catalog of sports-related knowledge combined with Blagden's hand in portraiture made for the perfect combination. Now, No Mas has teamed up with Blagden once again, contributing three animated vignettes that appear throughout Straight Outta L.A. a documentary premiering tonight on ESPN at 8pm EST. Directed by Ice Cube, the show delves into NWA and the LA Raiders, gang life, starter jackets, gangsta rap, football, the LA riots, and the madman/genius Steinbrenner of football, Al Davis. Watch an interview CNN did with Ice Cube about the documentary after the jump.
