I love the 'Blaxploitation' movies of the 1970's - Shaft, Superfly, Coffy etc etc
& they were obviously popular in Ja. going by the titles of many reggae songs.

Care to list any tunes with a Blaxploitation connection? Very Happy


Big Youth - Cool Breeze
Keith Hudson - Black Belt Jones
Lloyd Charmers - Shaft

Some good posts. I've heard most, of what's been posted. Will have to check out, what I don't know.

So far, "Cotton Comes To Harlem", is the pick of the litter. By a country mile, and then some. Love the movie, and music associated, with it. Ossie Davis, was a genius. In several capacities. Wink

But, to hear "CCTH" inna Reggae style: MIRTH. Cool Cool Cool

FWIW, I'm surprised, "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song" theme, was never done, JA style. Funk, or Reggae.

Now, where's my pimp stick? Wink
