RIP, Isaac Hayes


Black Moses of the Memphis sound, Stax. Remember the photo? Aside from Escape from New York, your career was an inspiration. Remember the Oscars, 1971, when you performed Shaft and pissed off all those old tools like John Wayne? Worth the price, for sure.
Rest in Peace. Pray for peace between the lunatic Russians and Georgians, by the way...

Hello there!

It is a shame that Isaac Hayes has passed away...and a day after black people all over the world were just bracing themselves after hearing about the passing of Bernie McCullough...

At the height of his career, Isaac Hayes represented a different type of black masculinity. He had a lot of mystery about him. Many women found him to be extremely sexy, although he was not the "all-American pretty boy type"...

I pray that he is resting with God.

He was a legend who did not make his people ashamed with any scandals...a lovely brotha...

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa
