The official trailer for the film, Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song. Written and directed by Melvin Van Peebles.

His son Mario Van Peebles also appears in a small role, playing the title character as a young boy. It tells the picaresque story of a poor black man on his flight from the white authority.

Melvin van Peebles infamous feature film ‘Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song’ is noted for being the very first so-called blaxploitation flick. The fact that he – together with the help of the legendary Stax label in Memphis – set out to promote the movie through an accompanying soundtrack is another interesting detail.

Melvin Van Peebles' Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song was an important film that paved the way for black filmmakers in American cinema in general, and in the 1970s blaxploitation genre in particular. Van Peebles hasn't been nearly as well known as a musician as he has a filmmaker, but he did compose the soundtrack, which was performed by Earth, Wind & Fire, who had then just released their first album. Heard on its own, the soundtrack, unlike Superfly or Shaft, is not a significant musical achievement.

Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song. After the body of a black man is discovered, Sweetback helps two white 'acquaintances' in the police force to look good by agreeing to go with them to the station as a suspect. But he is forced to go on the run after brutally attacking the two policemen when they arrest and beat up a young black man. Genre: Drama, Thriller, Crime

The fourth album by Melvin Van Peebles, and his second soundtrack release, Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song is drawn from the movie that began the Blaxploitation genre – even if the film’s content didn’t really draw up a template for the flicks which followed it. What Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song did as a movie was show that, yes, Hollywood could make money from films with strong black lead characters being, well, baadasssss and ghetto, rather than trying to sell Sidney Poitier to the white folks. What it did as a soundtrack wa. lso be baadasssss. Listen to Sweet Sweetbacks Baadasssss Song right now. Let’s be certain here: Mr Van Peebles cannot sing. And Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song, released in June 1971, two months after the film, is very much a soundtrack album, not a straightforward Stax collection of soulful songs.
