Man, You Come Straight Out of A Comic Book

Man, I miss Blaxploitation movies. Drug pushers and pimps as ghetto heroes. Sticking it to The Man. But the best thing about them was the music. Never mind the poor acting, editing and dialog. We got the theme from Shaft! The entire soundtrack of Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly! We got straight up, hard, gritty funk. And, of course, that music spilled into the everyday, and eventually, hip hop.

 

Some of these songs are from soundtracks, some are just regular cuts. They’re all songs that remind me to keep The Man’s foot off my neck.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Marvin Gaye- T Plays it Cool (Trouble Man)
