File this under wait what? Thanks to Hip Hop DX we stumbled on to this story. Apparently, John Legend was on The Russ Parr Morning Show this morning and in the conversation, he compared Rick Ross to Isaac Hayes. Well, yes of course, we clearly see where he’s going with this, wait, actually no, no we don’t.
“I feel like Rick Ross is kinda like a soul artist in a way because the way he uses music is very soulful. I was listening to his album yesterday and he just knows how to pick the right music to put around his voice. He has a very soulful voice. He’s almost like an Isaac Hayes of Hip Hop or something,” Legend explained.
Isaac Hayes fans everywhere are probably ready to chuck rotten tomatoes at us for even speaking about this comparison! We’re not sure what would make John Legend publicly say that, let alone think it. But since he did, we’ll turn it over to you! Do you see a comparison between Issac Hayes and Rick Ross?
