Ice Cube in Alameda, Nnamdi a spectator


O’Shea Jackson, or the artist better known as Ice Cube, was a spectator at Raiders practice Tuesday.

CEO Amy Trask said he is working on a few projects with the club.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is not practicing, and emerged from the facility to the field not in uniform. Also not practicing were cornerback/return specialist Justin Miller (turf toe), running back Justin Fargas (hamstring), safety Rashad Baker (stinger) and safety Michael Huff (quad).

Center John Wade, who practiced for the first time since the Dallas game Monday and still in contention to start, according to Tom Cable was not with the offensive line as they went through drills.

Safety Mike Mitchell, who said he could be returning to practice with another good rehab session, was going through cone drills with a member of the athletic training staff. Kirk Morrison (elbow) was also working to the side.

Returning to practice was linebacker Slade Norris (calf).

Ice Cube has been working on a documentary on the Los Angeles Raiders for ESPN detailing their influence in hip hop culture.

    James Jett was garbage!

    David Whites TWEET– I met Ice Cube and shook hands with him. Yeah, it was kinda cool.

    Hey SF Homer, You are covering the Oakland Raiders, Stop acting like a 13yr old groupie!

  • RaiderRockstar

    James Jett was solid as an undrafted player.

    Shouldn’t have been a starter though!

    “Stopped givin Props to the Raiders, cause Al Davis never paid us” – Ice Cube.

    One of my favorite hip hop lines. Artists finally realized the influence they had and decided to stop marketing people for free.

    Raiders are still one of the best selling NFL merchandises. Should be an interesting documentary.

    He whipped me with his penis once and gave me a lovely shiner.”

    “Been so long since have I’ve seen him. My dreams they are a crashin’.
    He’s got the greatest football skills but I really miss his fashion.”

    “I’m hoping that The Raider Fans will help me grow a sack.
    And hoping Mr. Crabtree will help me paint it Silver & Black…”

    Don’t engage trolls. Farts in the autumn wind…

  • I seriously doubt DHB will ever have 12 TDs in one season for the Raiders…James Jett did though, lol.

    Exactly. This is what people don’t realize. They’re building this team from the ground up. I would have done different, but I don’t run the show.

    Lets review:

    -All the starters from our 2002 squad are gone (except for Shane and Sebass). Meaning we have to start fresh. Most of them were old timers anyway (Gruden).

    -We got rid of those who don’t want to be here.

    -We have (according to Al) our QB, RBs, and WR of the future.

    -We’ve done well in getting TEs and solid cover LBs in later rounds.

    This is a work in progress. At the presser announcing Cable as HC, Al more or less said we’re rebuilding. We’ll be better, but if we’re not SB champs this year, don’t be too dissapointed, Nation.

    We need another season to get this team ready for playoffs. The DLine and OLine need to be addressed, and I think it will.

    We need to keep a few scholarship guys like Kelly and Fargas, but those two at least have some talent.

    Jett was nowhere near the player DHB is.granted everyone is entitled to their opinions and this board allows people to voice them.you,however,never seem to accept others opinions yet want everyone to go along with yours.you act as if your opinion is gospel and ridicule others if their opinion differs from yours,or you just make sarcastic remarks about others statements.

    Right, I am not here to just agree with everyone. Yes, I ridicule others and they ridicule me. That is why this place is sooooo much fun! If you don’t like it, or can’t take it, I am sure there is a church blog or something you can frequent.

    1. Dude, you really need to get some. You’re the most negative, biotchy S.O.B. on this site. And that’s really saying something.

    2. If you’re gonna get a HarDD_-on over 2 preseason games, then you clearly haven’t watched enough football to know the preseason doesn’t mean squat.

    3. When the Raiders DO put together a string of wins together this season, you better come in here and put your tail between your legs like a puppy.

    That goes for you, Brien the General, MaddenRaider & all the other non-stop babies.

    This isn’t life and death man. It’s football and that’s all.

    We love our team, period. I’ve got way too much serious things in life to worry about than to do nothing but biotch about my football team all the time.

    Hey, I got an idea for you –

    How about you actually enjoy being a Raider fan for a while?

  • Nnamdi:I’ll be fine for the opener. This isn’t that bad.–Jerry’s twitter thingy.

  • Yes!!! I’m number 1!!!!!!

  • Silver-n-Smac


    I bet you’re one of the fools who couldn’t wait for Rich Gannon’s career to end so that we could finally have the Big-Armed Kerry Collins under center, huh?

    Man remember how excited things were when we had D Russ kicking ass, Woodson shutting guys down. Had an awesome line with the Wiz and Robbins and big ass Lincoln.

    To think:
    Tim Brown
    Rod Woodson
    Man, them were the days!
