Isaac Hayes Dead At 65

We’ve lost another legend, y’all.

They say death comes in 3’s but this is a bit much to bear. The world lost Bernie Mac yesterday, and now we’ve lost legendary musician, Issac Hayes. And only 10 days before his 66th birthday.


I remember always hearing Isaac’s music growing up but I didn’t really start to appreciate his work until I saw the movie Dead President’s and scooped the soundtrack. “Walk On By” caused me to reintroduce myself to this man. I remember his cameo in I’m Gonna Git You Sucka and thinking, damn, Isaac’s got some comedic chops in ’em. Haha. You rarely saw him without his signature dark sunglasses. They were as much a part of him as his deep, gruff voice.

Man, this is a shock. Two legends gone in the matter of two days. Life isn’t fair. This shit just isn’t right. An entire weekend wondering why. It started bad and it’s not ending any better.

My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Hayes’ family and loved ones.

RIP, sir.

Late musician, Isaac Hayes

Late musician, Isaac Hayes

Isaac Lee Hayes, Jr.: August 20, 1942 – August 10, 2008
