Who s the baddest mo-fo to blow onto blaxploitation screens? Forget Shaft, Superfly or The
Mack. It s Rudy Ray Moore, the Godfather of Rap . He gave you the gospel of street hustler,
pimp, and all-around ghetto superhero Dolemite. Without a doubt one of the best known and
most enduring of all blaxploitation films and scores, Dolemite s legendary story and music helped
define a film genre and the sound of an entire decade.
Dolemite s long sought-after soundtrack is available now as a official reissue and comes with 28(!)
bonus tracks made from the original multi track master tapes. One of the undisputed blaxploitation
classics, the original motion-picture score is a wicked blend of uptempo funk instrumentals,
soul ballads, loud n proud themes and Dolemite s crucial statement of intent. This soundtrack s
raw genius helped pave the way for countless gritty, street-level funk soundtracks to follow. The pedigree
that the oft-duplicated sound spawned is undeniable and the music here is hot enough to
melt your stereo. Dolemite is sure to appeal to admirers of pimps, players and private eyes.
