Isaac Hayes, Chocolate Salty Balls( Comedy Central )
Chocolate Salty Balls
Hayes was cast as the voice of Chef in the long-running Comedy Central series South Park, which introduced the artist to a new generation of fans. Chef, a sex-obsessed cafeteria singer, became one of the shows most popular characters, and a song from the series, Chocolate Salty Balls, was even a minor hit.
But Hayes relationship with South Park ended in controversy. Hayes is believed to have quit the show in 2006 after an episode mocked Scientology.
