Isaac Hayes was a great songwriter and singer. His song "Theme from Shaft" has phallic overtones! I own all three movies: "Shaft", "Shaft's Big Score!", and "Shaft in Africa". I'll watch one tonight in his memory.
As a songwriter myself, one thing I like about Hayes is that he sometimes spoke rather than sing. You could say he influenced rap. However, for me I often speak in my songs because singing is inappropriate. In the a cappella coda to my song "Extinct Wolf Blues" recorded last week I stop singing and speak--because the topic is death, and I will not sing about death. A few of my songs are about astro-physics and it sounds foolish to sing about that topic.
Two of Isaac Hayes' hit songs, "Hold On, I'm Coming” and "Soul Man” are enough to prove he was a genius at songwriting.
Good riddance. One less hypocrite in the world.
Leaving South Park after they made fun of his "religion". Never mind all the other religions that were attacked on that show.
