"Dolemite is my name...and f**king up muthaf**ka's is my game!"
Who's the baddest motherf**ker to blow onto blaxploitation screens? Forget Shaft and just ask the 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, the music of an entire decade, and give birth to a new sound that would change the face of music forever in its' wake.
DOLEMITE's long sought-after soundtrack is available again domestically on LP. One of the undisputed classics of the blaxploitation canon, DOLEMITE's original motion-picture score is a wicked blend of guitar-funk bombs, film score, smooth soul, 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 DOLEMITE spawned is undeniable and the music here is hot enough to melt your stereo. DOLEMITE: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is vital listening for any fan of funk, hip-hop, and music "from the 70's. Music is by The Soul Rebellion Orchestra conducted by Rudy Ray Moore.
