Profile:
Members: Andres Titus PKA Dres and William McLean PKA Mista Lawnge

Black Sheep are one of the slightly lesser-known groups of the NYC-based Native Tongues Family (of which A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Jungle Brothers were the better known members.) The group rapidly gained success with their 1991 debut album "A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing" on the back of a string of well-received singles: "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Strobelite Honey", and especially after the release of the remixed single "The Choice Is Yours (Revisited)". The second album, "Non-Fiction", did not fare nearly as well, partly due to a tepid critical response, but also a lack of support from the record company. It spawned the singles "Without A Doubt" and "North South East West". After that album failed to build on the momentum of the first album, the group remained relatively inactive for the rest of the decade. It wasn't until 2006 when they returned with their long overdue third installment entitled "8WM / Novakane". Shortly after that, Mista Lawnge left the group and Dres continues to release music under the name Black Sheep.
