    QFor all who don’t know….”Dolomite..aka,Rudy Ray Moore is the true originator gangsta rap. Like myself and ALL other aspiring rap practitioners….no matter how original u may think u are….Dolomite was the first thru the door…never went commercial,,,and spawned the genre of blacksploitation which has evolved into this clusterfuck of gang-related smack pushing hip hop scene. A perpetual cultural prison in which to the masses you have eluded sole responsibility for “making popular…or creating….never being able to know…what ur mastery would 50 years later evolve into….Respect= re-(again) spect-(see) I see you.

  14. king geronimo Says:

    The originator…the creator…..R.I.P.
