Isaac Hayes Found Dead

Isaac was a baaaaad man. This has been a weekend not so nice

First Bernie and now Isaac Hayes? Looks like the Man upstairs is organizing a party for the ages. I grew up on this man’s music. My Pop used to bang Shaft, Walk On By and Never Can Say Goodbye. People we gotta get in shape because this is getting crazy. I’m sure Chuck, Cube (the segment before me) and I will all be in a little shock on the show tonight with all this bad news goings on. More will be posted here as this unfortunate story develops. My stomach hurts. Here’s a few of his hits. R.I.P brotha.

  1. This has been an unbelievable weekend for the black and entertainment industry. I grew up listening to “I stand Accused”, and “By the Time I get to Phoenix”

    This is unbelievable, I come on here to comment on Bernie Mac and I find out one of my heroes is gone. One of my favorite photos is the cover for Black Moses. Issac Hayes was the essence of cool, a fearless Black Man that didn’t back down (see Truck Turner).

    People talk about how MJ brought dark-skinned bruthas to the forefront. F-That, we were always there Issac Hayes made sure of that.

    Rest In Peace my brother.

    RIP Issac…no other soundtrack will ever ever ever be better than “Shaft”.

    You can never fully brace yourself, but as the old folks say, deaths come in 3s…I’ll try and brace myself anyway.

    I have to say this is the man who started disco! He was also responsible for the full length album and the orchestral albums that Barry Whitewould follow and the rap that rap would follow.

    He is an innovator and a generator of soul music and the first successful black soundtrack to win a Grammy. Isaac Hayes you will never be forgotten. RIP

    First Mac now Hayes, what’s really going on??? R.I.P. Ike Hayes

    Spoke to my Pop earlier and he loved Hot Buttered Soul and specifically By the Time I Get To Phoenix. About to go on Chuck’s show and AG, Chuck started off by playing I Stand Accused in tribute. He said Public Enemy opened up for Black Moses in Africa. I should have the link by tomorrow.Thanks Isaac Hayes for influencing A Nation of Millions…

    Man this is getting depressing, Issac Hayes and Bernie Mac dead, Rush Limbaugh, Bob and Niger Innis, Sean Hannity and Patrick Buchanan still alive, those dudes must have made a great deal with the devil in exchange for their souls. Another one of our gifted giants dead God must really need Mac and Hayes.

    Once again, so sad. Issac will also be missed. This is just terrrible. Life just won’t be the same without him and Bernie.

  12. Teedee says:

    Shock and disbelief. This is getting really depressing with the death of two gifted giants. RIP Bernie and Ike. You’re both gone but never forgotten.
