If you don't understand Taz Arnold yet, give him some time. With all the mind-altering beats he and his Sa-Ra fam have served to Talib Kweli, Bilal and Erykah Badu, that was the start. Then there's the bold (and brave) directions he's taken fashion in recent years, making him truly ahead of the curve. Still lost? You'll have a chance to get the full scope of Taz's vision when he drops his solo album, Hood Love this year.
Like all things Taz, there's a balanced dosage of stunting and knowledge to be earned. He's a guy on the scene—around music industry cool guys and snooty fashionistas. He's got plenty to report. Some of it just-so-happens to be about the crack selling and sexual debauchery from his POV. At least he's got your attention to enlighten you about ancient history from Africa to Bloods and Crips in Chicago. Hit the jump for the science of Taz directed by Coodie & Chike.
