Ice Cube has been a die-hard Oakland Raiders fan for years.
That being said, Cube had to hook up the silver and black with an early screening of Straight Outta Compton, which hits theaters Friday.
The Raiders got a sneak peek of the highly anticipated film Wednesday night, courtesy of the rapper and actor, with a bunch of players taking to their Twitter accounts Thursday to give the movie rave reviews.
The Raiders can really thank Cube by getting back into contention in the AFC.
After finishing a dismal 3-13 in 2014, the Raiders open their 2015 season at home against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 13.
