Rolling Stone Names "30 Best Music Documentaries On Netflix Streaming This Instant"

Rolling Stone's list includes films featuring rappers, Ice Cube"s "30 for 30: Straight Outta L.A." among them.

Rolling Stone has compiled a list of "30 Best Music Documentaries on Netflix Streaming This Instant.”

The Ice Cube-directed 30 for 30: Straight Outta L.A., which initially appeared on ESPN, is on the list. 

"This 2010 entry in ESPN's 30 for 30 series traces the rise and fall of both of two aggressive Los Angeles landmarks: N.W.A and the L.A. Raiders,” Rolling Stone says of the film, which also features Snoop Dogg, among other rappers. "Director Ice Cube isn't an entirely objective voice, but he deserves credit for weaving several threads – the Crips and Bloods, the crack-cocaine epidemic, Raiders owner Al Davis battling with the NFL – into a narrative that's deeper than music or sports.”

The 1997 documentary film Rhyme & Reason makes in on the list, at least in part to its timing, Rolling Stone says.

"Peter Spirer's scattershot profile of dozens of rappers, from sundry members of Wu-Tang Clan and A Tribe Called Quest to Cypress Hill and E-40, has become a time capsule of Hip Hop on the eve of its greatest tragedy,” the publication says. "There is an interview with Tupac Shakur, as well as scenes of his funeral; the Notorious B.I.G., who also appears, was murdered three months after the doc's January 1997 release.”

I Want My Name Back, a doc on the Sugarhill Gang, the first commercially successful Rap group, is also on Rolling Stone’s list.

"In this engrossing documentary, Wonder Mike and Master Gee reclaim their reputation as MCs worthy of respect as they wage court battles with their former label, deal with a fake 'Sugarhill Gang' led by disgraced member Big Bank Hank, and record an unlikely Europop hit with French producer Bob Sinclar,” Rolling Stone says.

    Why is there no documentaries about Rick Ross? Is it because no one believes anything he says or is it because he won't let anyone dig into his past?
