One of the greatest composers of the 20th century (and one of the most sampled artists of our era) passed away today. The legendary Isaac Hayes died on August 10, 2008. Hayes’ music has always inspired me, and added a larger-than-life feeling to any project that was associated with his work. (the theme song alone lifted John Shaft to super-hero status)

He also had a fruitful career as an actor. Hell, the soundtrack to “Truck Turner” made that movie an instant classic in my opinion. Singers, rappers and beatmakers worldwide are probably digging through their record stashes trying to work on a tribute right now.
