Soul legend Isaac Hayes died today at the age of 65. He would have turned 66 in 10 days.
Isaac’s wife found him unconscious next to the treadmill inside of their Memphis home this morning. When paramedics arrived, they tried to revive him and took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at around 2 this afternoon. No foul play is suspected, but a cause of death has not yet been announced.
Isaac has won several Grammys. He also won an Oscar for the theme song to “Shaft.” Isaac was the voice for Chef on “South Park” from 1997 to 2006. Isaac Hayes, who was a Scientologist, left the show because of an episode which made fun of Scientology.
Ugh! Bernie Mac yesterday and now Isaac Hayes today?! Bernie and Isaac did a movie together called “Soul Men” which comes out later this year. Samuel L. Jackson is also in that movie. Get Samuel to the safe house!
This shit too much, seriously. Isaac Hayes will be missed!
Rest in peace, Isaac…..
