Like millions of Soul, R&B, Funk, and Hip Hop fans around the world, I am deeply saddened by the death of this legendary artist. I was not around during his prime, so I will never know the impact of his music during the height of his career, but speaking as a life long Hip Hop fanatic, we have lost one of our forefathers. The casual listener may know Ike for Shaft, and the many, many, many times it was re-done, and spoofed, but to know him only for one song on one album is a huge discredit to his legacy. His compositions are parallel to none, his voice is one of a kind, his instrumentation is unbelievable, his style and charizma was his uniquely his. The point I'm trying to get across is THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYONE LIKE ISAAC HAYES. Period.

Shortly after hearing about Isaac Hayes' death on Sunday night, I got the sudden inspiration to make a Isaac Hayes tribute mix. For those who know me well, know I was actually thinking about doing this in the past, but since I never went through with it, I figured that this would be a good time to show people what Ike brought to the table, and to make sure his legacy lives on forever. Rest in Peace.
