This is turning to be a very sad weekend. Isaac Hayes passed today at age 65:

Soul singer and arranger Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film “Shaft,” has died, sheriff’s officials in Memphis, Tennessee, said Sunday. Relatives found Hayes unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill. Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Our prayers go out to the Hayes family.

Classic Isaac Hayes and Chris Rock under the hood

    Damn!!! Two legends in two days?!WTF?? To all of u who dont know that Mr. Hayes was a legend just listen to the entire Shaft(the original) soundtrack & his body of work.. This is sad,the messed up thing about it is that someone will be getting overlooked when two major figures die but I will say R.I.P to both and they both can be an inspiration to us because they lead their lives to the fullest and both flipped their doe to become more successful.

    I’m from Memphis. Isaac Hayes is like, Memphis royalty. I’m shocked. But I guess we all have to go sometime. I loved Isaac regardless his religion-he made good music, so I wish the best to his family, and hopes he rest in peace.

    I was listening to Isaac’s version of ‘Walked on by’ when I found out…

    The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office says a family member found Hayes unresponsive near a treadmill on Sunday. He was pronounced dead about an hour later at Baptist East Hospital in Memphis. The cause of death was not immediately known.

    In the early 1970s, Hayes laid the groundwork for disco, for what became known as urban-contemporary music and for romantic crooners like Barry White. And he was rapping before there was rap.

    His career hit another high in 1997 when he became the voice of Chef, the sensible school cook and devoted ladies man on the animated TV show “South Park.”
