Black Sheep

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 Collective (of which A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, De La Soul, and Jungle Brothers were the better known member groups) The duo 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 with the release of the remixed single "The Choice Is Yours (Revisited)". The 1994 follow-up LP, "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 debut, the group remained relatively inactive for the rest of the decade, with exception for Dres, using the moniker Dres the Black Sheep, dropping a semi-successful solo LP entitled Sure Shot Redemption in 1999. It wasn't until 2006 they returned with their long overdue third installment entitled "8WM / Novakane". Shortly after that, Mista Lawnge left the group while Dres continues to release music under the name Black Sheep.
