Boss Nigger (1975)





































Starring:


Storyline
Boss (Fred Williamson), has "decided to hunt white folks for a change," by becoming a bounty hunter to click the hammer on fugitive outlaws. He and his comic sidekick Amos (D'Urville Martin) ride into the town of San Miguel, find it has no sheriff, and takes the job himself, much to the displeasure of the racial epithet-hurling townsfolk who must pay $20 each time they use the "n-word." Those $20 fines add up faster than a Texas tornado, as does the posterior kicking of those who try to keep our heroes from instituting "black man's law in white man's town."

D'urville is Ubiquitous in Blaxploitation movies. He's with Williamson in Blind Rage (1978), Death Journey (1976), The Soul Of Nigger Charley (1973), Black Ceasar & Hell Up In Harlem (Sequel) (1973), Hammer (1972),The Legend Of Nigger Charley (1972). So They're tight allright! The Nigger Charley movies probably inspired the Boss Nigger movie in the first place. I look upon them as a trilogy of sorts with all their anachronisms.

On another note check the shining green word "Boss Nigger" in the post real closely for some great sounds courtesy of my man Comeback Shane who noticed in the credits that it says the vocals are by a 'Terrible Tom' and the We Produce records and tapes it came on were distributed by Stax inc.

He furter adds that he could hardly find anything on this artist but he did find this...
