No one understood him but his woman. RIP Isaac Hayes (1942 – 2008)

Isaac HayesJesus. First Bernie Mac, now Isaac Hayes. Yesterday, the 10th of August, Isaac Hayes was found dead in his home. The cause of death is not known at this time.

Over the last ten years of his life, Hayes was probably best known for being the voice of Chef on South Park, who crafted more smooth soul means for laying down with ladies than Hayes did in his entire real-life career but it shouldn’t be forgotten that he was also responsible for what is probably the best and best-known blaxploitation soundtrack ever (he also won an Oscar for it). Spend ten minutes with the Shaft soundtrack and dispute me. I dare you.  Aside from that, Hayes is also credited with roles as Truck Turner and The Duke of New York (A #1!) in my personal, all-time favorite movie, Escape From New York.

Another legend down. He will be missed.
