Isaac Hayes: August 20, 1942 – August 10, 2008 R.I.P
I have never really been familiar with the work of Isaac Hayes, only of his theme track for 'Shaft' and of course the voice of South Park's Chef. I found this mixtape today by Dj Wonder via The Fader which, brought a whole new perspective to his music. I realised that I had grown up listing to Hip Hop and Rap artists' track's which, like many soul legends, had mostly sampled from his music. For those unfamiliar with Hayes' work or those who are just general fans of Hip Hop, I suggest having a listen to this mix and realise how much influence Hayes had on the rap world.
