Update On Isaac Hayes' Death

A bit more info about the surprising death of Isaac Hayes has been found out.    It is now known that the treadmill the 65 year old was found lying next to was still running.  And the authorities believe Mr. Hayes died from natural causes while/after working out.  His death also may have stemmed from his high blood pressure his family knew him to have.  According to the People.com: "The family had last seen him about noon," says Steve Shular, public information officer for that office. "Family members had gone to the grocery store and left him home. When the family came home around 1, his wife's cousin found him lying on the floor in the basement near a treadmill. The treadmill was running, so it is believed that he had been working out." Mr. Hayes also suffered a stroke in January of 2006 which was believed to be brought on by exhaustion.  Still, no foul play is thought to have occured.  Hayes reportedly had 12 children (his youngest just born in 2006), 14 grandchildren, and 3 greatgrandchildren.  R.I.P. Mr. Hayes. In some eerie news, Isaac is also in the upcoming Soul Men movie and his co-stars were Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson. According to one media source: Death is a big subject in the film. The entire plot of the movie revolves around Mac and Jackson eulogizing the death of their friend with music, only now two members of the film’s actual cast really are dead. Three days ago it sounded like a fantastic idea for a film, especially in light of the way Sam Jackson belted out blues tunes in Black Snake Moan. Now, it seems almost too sad to watch. Buying a ticket to Soul Men could end up feeling like you’re purchasing a seat at someone’s funeral. Very eerie. The movie doesn't open until November 14th and there's a chance Dimension Films will halt the movie.

RIP Bernie Mac and Issac

RIP Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes. And Samuel L. Jackson better be careful. Something is going on with the Universe is taking away great talents right before their movie is scheduled to come out. Heath Ledger, anybody?

Hello there! Thank you for

Hello there! Thank you for remembering Isaac Hayes....he was a different kind of brotha...he was pro-black at a time when black men were trying to be Barry "the good black" Obama in order to reach their goals in life...and he was a man's man...he was not afraid to portray a different type of black masculinity... People think Michael Jordan was fashionable with his bald head look...please...Isaac was rocking a bald head with his sexy self when Michael was still in diapers! *LOL* Thank you for remembering a unique man...his life journey was not in vein...he will be remembered with much respect by millions... Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS! Lisa

That is crazy!!! God forbid

That is crazy!!! God forbid anything happens to Sam. Now I know this movie will sell major... the company is probably acting like they want to postpone it, but by then everyone will be past the grief in a way. Look at Dark Knight. No one really sees your talent until you die, sadly.

Black folks believe in superstition?Lord. God forbid anyone predicting someones death.Someone last week before Bernie died said that he was dead, and on Saturday found out he died...it was weird, but when it's time to go it is time to go.Do you all think you going to live forever or something?Oh well, God bless them both.Sorry to say, but death is part of life's cycle.Blame on people thinking they can live forever.

Its weird because I saw a sneak preview of this movie a few weeks ago. I thought that it was kind of crazy how both of them being in the same movie passed away at the same time. The movie was good and Bernie Mac (may he RIP) was funny as heck. Lots of cursing but definetely a funny movie.

In 2003, U.S. citizens with roots in the West African country of Ghana, saw a business opportunity. They started arranging marriages of convenience, matching up West African immigrants with Americans, for a fee. An American gets a few thousand dollars. A facilitator gets up to 60,000. And the alien gets something priceless: U.S. citizenship. LOOKS LIKE ISAAC HAYES STUPIDITY HAS COST HIM HIS LIFE.

Isaac Hayes married a ghanian

Isaac Hayes married a ghanian african 2 years ago. Why am I not surprised that he was STRESSED to death. A man with his money can get all the blood pressure meds he needs to control it. No one with his money dies of blood pressure. Wake up people. Stop leaving our legacies in the hands of foreigners who secretly despise you. ___________________________________________________________ I have to say that I am truly offended by your asinine, no substance comment as I am a product of an Ethiopian father and American mother. Get off the xenophobic bus NOW!

So he died from a heart

So he died from a heart attack due to high blood pressure, huh???? What did the african do, replace his meds with a placebo and he thought he was taking his meds! Haters will do anything to get a greencard and money. He didn't have one well year after marrying that african booty scratcher.

Tasha! I said the same thing,

Tasha! I said the same thing, I read the plot of the movie the day that BM passed away and when my mom came home from church and said that Isaac had passed away, i had this terrible feeling in my stomach as I commented on the sad news yesterday. I immediately prayed for the safety SLJ and the remaining cast of the film. Goes to show you like someone commented yesterday, It doesn't matter how much money you have, goes to show you that death is enevitable!!!

"Buying a ticket to Soul Men

"Buying a ticket to Soul Men could end up feeling like you’re purchasing a seat at someone’s funeral." WT????!!!!!! that is the dumbest statement ever, as I oftentimes wonder if the movie Dark Knight would have performed as well in the box office if Heath Ledger were alive!!!!!????!!!!!! The fact that these two great men have passed away, makes me wanna view their last movie that much more, to remind myself of how genius they were!!!!!
