Isaac Hayes aka "Black Moses" died today after his wife Adjowa found him unconscious on the floor near a still running treadmill inside their home outside of Memphis Tennessee. He was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital and pronounced dead at 2:08pm, at the age of 65. The cause of death was not immediately known and foul play has not been suspected. The tragic irony of his death comes only a day after comedian Bernie Mac who was set to star in a comedic film titled "Soul Man" featuring Hayes & Sam Jackson scheduled for a Nov 12 release later this year succumbed to complications with pneumonia Hayes born Isaac Lee Hayes, Jr. was not only a soul and funk singer-songwriter, musician, record producer, arranger, film score composer, actor and known to a younger generation as the voice for the character "Chef" on the Comedy Central animated TV series South Park, but was also one of my favorite artists of all times simply off his funk laden rendition of Burt Bacharach's "Look Of Love" made popular to the Hip Hop generation as the sampled gem used on Jay-Z's "Can I Live" for his debut Reasonable Doubt. Hayes leaves behind 12 children, 14 grandchildren three great-grandchildren & wife Adjowa Hayes. RIP.
