Legendary musician Isaac Hayes originally offered to work on the project in hopes of being cast as the black private dick. The role was already secured by Richard Roundtree, so Hayes was offered a cameo and the opportunity to compose the badass score of the classic blaxpoitation film. "Theme from Shaft" went on to win the 1972 Oscar for Best Original Song, and though it still amuses us that Hayes beefed with South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker over their jabs at his Scientology cult faith, we're positive that the Shaft soundtrack will outlive that fuckery.
