This already hot song gets the "Bad Boy" treatment!!!
Consequence feat. P. Diddy & The Lox - Whatever You Want (Bad Boy Remix)
TAZ IS THE ILLEST!!!
The word “crazy” gets tossed around unduly when speaking of people who may be on another wavelength or maybe even ahead of their time. The non-linear thought process of ‘tAz Arnold aka Ti$a’ has definitely garnered him the “crazy” moniker but his ability to curb that right brain thinking into efforts such as music and clothing would brand him more as an eccentric due to his ability to harness his creativity. From working with musicians such as Kanye West, Herbie Hancock, Erykah Badu, Iggy Pop and his own group, SA-RA Creative Partners to fashion brands such as MCM and Kanye West’s now defunct Pastelle, ‘tAz has proven that just because they can’t understand you doesn’t mean you’re not making sense. Creative Control spent some time with Ti$a’ in his L.A. studio to find a method to his perceived madness.
