Found this, posted by Dolomite's myspace page:

Legendary actor, filmmaker, comedian, singer, Godfather of Rap and King of the Party Records, Rudolph Frank Moore better known as Rudy Ray Moore or Dolemite has left this earthly plane.


A 60 + year veteran of the stage, the first x rated comedian, one of the first African American filmmakers and the third most sampled man in the world, his self made comedy records and films have inspired and influenced generations from a thousand walks of life and a hundred nations.


He had recently finished work on "The Dolemite Explosion" with longtime friend and costar Jimmy Lynch (his first self made film in 30 years), an album of soul ballads called "Let Me Sing To You Before I Drift Away" with his daughter Rusty, and had been Highlighted by Hadjii in an episode of "Somebodies" and was looking forward to a resurgence and a country album.


After a long battle with diabetes and obscurity, he passed peacefully on Sunday at the age of 81.


He was a good God fearing man who loved his friends and family.

I have a few of his DVDs, including DOLEMITE, THE HUMAN TORNADO, and DISCO GODFATHER.  They're all bad, but all fun!

Sad to hear.  He was one of the few true originals.

I don't know what surprises me more, that he's dead or that he was that old.

Ladies and gentlemen, the kung fu pimp of comedy has left the building.

Rest in peace, Mr. Moore.

I feel terrible.... I've never seen a Rudy Ray Moore flick. I must pick up the Dolemite films and honor his memory. Rest in Peace Rudy.

The world might still be worth saving.  The news of his passing made the front page of CNN.com:

I'm uneasy about posting the link, but the reference to the Dolomite brought to mind the first place I actually heard of him (about a month or so ago)...

There's apparently a group of people who dub over Charlie Brown movies using stereotypical black lingo, slang, profanity, vulgarities/crudities, and ?ghetto? situations. It hysterical but quite racist.

Here's the Dolomite one (Linus is writing to the Great Dolomite instead of the Great Pumpkin):

(They spell it "Dolemite", but I'm assuming it's the same dude.)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
