After serving two years of a twenty year sentence in an LA prison for possession of drugs and furs, the warden releases Dolemite (R.R. Moore) in a scheme to catch his rival pimp, Willie Green (D'Urville Martin), who set him up for the arrest with corrupt white cops. Dolemite returns to his old haunts, but fellow pimp, Queen Bee (Lady Reed), who ran his nightclub, tells him his club is now owned by his rival Willie Green. The bad-ass rap rhyme-master, Dolemite, seeks revenge and uses his lethal karate female club dancers to help him get revenge.
