The world has lost a great man today: Rudy Ray Moore, also known as Dolemite, has shuffled off this mortal coil and gone to Heaven with the angels. He died of diabetes at 81.
The comedian/actor/singer is best known for his portrayal of Dolemite in classic blaxploitation flicks Dolemite and The Human Tornado. Moore popularized the pimp archetype, and so was instrumental in the creation of 87 million-zillion rap songs and hip-hop personas. Plus, he "has an all-girl army that knows what to do. They're foxy as hell and practice kung fu."
He will be missed.
