Isaac Hayes, artist, producer, Chef, and one of first musicians to give blaxploitation an aural identity, passed away on Sunday morning.

Pop culture will remember him as that Grammy-winning, towering African American soul singer whose music was just as smooth as his hairless skull. I’ll probably remember him as that guy who looked a bit like Ritchie Havens, but sounded more like Barry White’s suave twin.

I even threw away a brand new copy of his 1971 album Black Moses in a fit of rage against everything R&B. Only after I heard “Hot Buttered Soul”, did I realize that Isaac Hayes wasn’t R&B.

He was soul music’s heart of darkness. A distant, cool summer breeze that once swept through the African American sonic landscapes during the Seventies.

May his soul chill out in peace.
