Review #76: Super Fly, Curtis Mayfield
#76: Super Fly, Curtis Mayfield
So this was written by Mayfield for the movie of the same name, released in 1972. Super Fly was a Blaxploitation film, which (if you don’t know) was a subgenre of movie that had its heyday in the ’70s. Basically, they starred Black characters in extremely edgy situations and were a very baldfaced effort to appeal to “urban” audiences. They were popular!
