Shaft’s Big Score – Don’t Misunderstand

Don’t Misunderstand

This is an actual real music from the Blaxploitation film Shaft’s Big Score (released 1972), this is a song that accurately captures the mood of the ‘infamous’ times of the 1970’s as pimping, gangsterism, and being a ‘playboy’ was coveted and revered. Jumping forward to the current day, I don’t think much as changed – except where this song sounds a bit more eloquent, while the current music is very blunt & direct with their slackness & slackitude.

There are some real funny and classic lines from this song. I’m still trying to figure out who the composer is; as it wasn’t mentioned in the film credits.

This is some funny shit straight out of the Blaxploitation film genre of the 1970’s. Now, we all have heard of the more popular Blaxploitation films like ‘Shaft’, ‘Foxy Brown’, and even ‘Dolomite’, but there were tons more – this is one of the ‘more’. Enter ‘Black Belt Jones’ – a martial arts fighting afro brother that has unique/funky way of fighting crime.

These are the bad movies that are so bad that it is actually ‘good’ – don’t ask me how that can be, but it happens. These days, bad movies are just bad.
