Über Black Sheep
A charismatic duo who scored a few major hits in the early '90s, Black Sheep -- Dres and Mista Lawnge -- emerged in 1991 with their classic debut, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing. A hodge-podge of jazz and rock samples, neck-bending beats, humorous rhymes, and player bravado, it featured the much-loved singles "The Choice Is Yours" and "Strobelite Honey." Affiliated with the Native Tongues collective, Black Sheep clowned gangsta stereotypes while also indulging in lyrical sexcapades and an excellent posse cut ("Pass The 40"). Unfortunately, their 1994 follow-up, Non Fiction, was slept on, and the Sheep faded out of the spotlight. In 1999 Dres released a solo album called Sure Shot Redemption.
