R.I.P. Isaac Hayes (August 20, 1942 – August 10, 2008)

Composer of the theme from the movie Shaft and winner of an Academy Award as well as two Grammys, Isaac Hayes has passed away yesterday.

He was most recently known for his South Park character, Chef, and notoriously quit because they made fun of his religion, Scientology.

He was a true pioneer.

Rest in peace, Isaac.
