The legend behind such blaxploitation classics as Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, an incalculable influence on Tarantino and Spike Lee, recorded this in 1974. Fundamentally, it's him growling over "funky grooves". A born philosopher, he opines that "A Birth Certificate Ain't Nuthin' But A Death Warrant Anyway", and, after bemoaning the fact that he'll never visit every bar in the world, claims that "between a woman's breast is the thickest thorns you can ever lay your head on". We'll look out for that, Melv. Godlike, of course.

The legend behind such blaxploitation classics as Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song, an incalculable influence on Tarantino and Spike Lee, recorded this in 1974. Fundamentally, it’s him growling over “funky grooves”. A born philosopher, he opines that “A Birth Certificate Ain’t Nuthin’ But A Death Warrant Anyway”, and, after bemoaning the fact that he’ll never visit every bar in the world, claims that “between a woman’s breast is the thickest thorns you can ever lay your head on”. We’ll look out for that, Melv. Godlike, of course.
