As Rico enters Dolphins record store, he says, "I was born in a barrel of butcher knives/Shot in the ass with 2 Colt .45s.." That monologue would be the basis for Rudy Ray Moore's duet with rapper Big Daddy Kane on the track "Big Daddy vs. Dolemite", as featured in Kane's 1990 album "Taste of Chocolate".
Rudy Ray Moore:
You know what they say brother - luck is where opportunity meets preparation.
While the film tells the story of the making of Dolemite (1975), the car chase, the Cadillac exploding, and the sex scene are from the sequel, The Human Tornado (1976). The scenes are intentionally included as a nod to Moore's later film.
