Perfect example! Was watching more of his recent stuff lately and he definitely took a turn from sampling an took a step into more Neo soul direction. He's always had those funk bass lines but there's definitely something more creative and musically Inspiring about him now. I Agree you don't need to read sheet music or have a PHD in music theory but understanding basic chord progressions and playing an instrument won't hurt you. Especially when tracking musicians. Being able to talk and explain your self with knowledge and in a language they'll understand can only help for the better.
