Product Description

Amazon.com

Dres and Mista Lawnge kicked off their careers in high style as the bratty kid brothers--the, uh, proverbial Black Sheep--of the Native Tongue family. It's not a completely deserved reputation, since the pair's debut disc is a slickly produced effort with smooth rhymes and strong beats. The guest spots are kept to a minimum, though they remain choice, especially when kid MC Chi Ali raps, "pass the 40, 'cause my mother's not looking." The duo's style pulls toward humor, which they try to keep understated (in their sexual boasts), but it sometimes goes way over the top--most notably on the gangsta-rap parody "U Mean I'm Not," in which the narrator kills his sister for using his toothbrush. --Randy Silver

A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is one of the best old school records I've ever heard. It's seriously just an awesome listen straight through, all 70 minutes of it. For reasons unknown, the Sheep never really got recognition for there amazing beats and rhymes. They were members of the Native Tongues crew, along with The Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul. Those groups are all better known than the Sheep, but they're certainly not any better. This cd has tracks with smooth beats commensurate to Tribe's best tracks on Midnight Marauders (Butt In The Meantime, Strobelite Honey), hilarious rhymes on point with De La's 3 Feet High and Rising (Pass The 40), and straight up great hip-hop tracks (Similak Child, Black With N.V. and Blunted 10), as anything from The Jungle Brother's Straight Out The Jungle. This is really a great album. I recommend it to everyone.

This is one of the tightest and most underrated hip-hop albums ever. I don't know why the music fan in England said the lyrics are nothing clever. In my estimation, Dres is the wittiest MC I've ever heard. I've been listening to this album since '91, and I'm still discovering new stuff. This is one of those albums where you can throw it on and just let it play. Basically, if you're on this page already, go ahead and buy it. Play it a few times and you'll be hooked.

Newcomers of the Native Tongue (De La Soul, Jungle Brothers & A Tribe Called Quest) family, Black Sheep drops a debut, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing, with only one trait pertinent, lyrical skills. Dreaming to begin the album, off with a more comedic effort on "U Mean I'm Not" as more of a disrespect of gangster rap's street graphic tales. "La Ménage" featuring Q-Tip is a good song pertaining to sex as Dres and partner Mista Lawnge or alter ego Sugar Dick Daddy show you can't have a show without the DJ. A song with a down play of guitar chords looped with a subtle flute makes "Hoes We Knows" a standout. "Black With N.V. (No Vision)" is a different atmosphere for this album that was necessary as social issues are being confronted. This LP also contains both versions of the hit "The Choice Is Yours". Thoughtful, clever and quite funny interludes help to push this LP among such as "Are You Mad?", "L.A.S.M.", "Go To Hail" and "For Doz That Slept". One thing that kept this from being a classic is the fact that there are no original tracks besides the heavy sample of jazz tunes. For everything that wasn't mentioned about this album here's how to describe their personality and concepts: "...the doo-doo eating, vomit tasting, pee drinking, jelly doughnut making, hoe slapping, kitty cat licking, cesspool swimming, pre-marital sex having, you know the whole nine, so run for the hills and hide your hoes..."

Straight up Hip Hop....Dope beats and rhymes. Dres is an incredible MC that's been slept on....Mr long def does his job here as the beat maker/dj. The lyrics that Dres kicks on this cd are thought provoking and hilarious at times.

If your'e buying this for the 1st time, don't expect it to jump out at you on the initial listen, give it some time and it'll grow on you..

If you know that catchphrase, then more than likely you are already up on Black Sheep and really don't need to hear me tell you how dope and ahead of their time the two man crew from NY by way of "North Cackalack" were. As members of the "Native Tongue" collective, featuring The Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest, the self described outsiders of the crew, blessed themselves with the moniker Black Sheep to further certify their oddball point of view. This move aside, the music was as dope as anything the JB'S or Tribe put out themselves. "A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing" was damn near groundbreaking in the sense that it was far left of what dominated the hip-hop landscape at the time. Incredulous beats crafted by totally underrated Mr. Lawnge coupled with clever, "can't see me" lyrics from Dres were all over tracks like "Similak Child", "Gimme The Finga", "Try Counting Sheep". I first saw these cats in the video for "Flavor Of The Month" and knew they were bringing that different fire. Their impact is still heard right now in the game. Dres' arrogance can be heard in scores of underground MCs'. and you can still hear the classic "The Choice Is Yours" in many a club. The Sheep were true innovaters, and it's a shame they didn't stick around as long as other less talented acts did. Oh, and peep the very telling intro "You Mean I'm Not" which lampooned the landscape of gangsta rap that was major at that time. Dres' yelling delivery ala Ice Cube with a NY accent gave it away off the bat! Cop this album for a blast of timeless classic 90's era hip-hop. And as a pre-teen pre-felony Chi Ali says "Pass The 40 cause my moms ain't lookin"

Perhaps the most influential album you've never heard of. Sick rhymes, hypnotic beats, way ahead of its time, you dont need to believe me, listen for yourself. A classic.

When "The Choice Is Yours" came out, I was in second grade, and growing up in Stamford,CT which picked up all of the NYC stations. Naturally, I loved the song, but it isn't until now, my junior year in high school, that I have learned to respect and appreciate East Coast Rap at it's best (era 89-91). I was listening to my radio at sonicnet.com and I was able to hear more and more songs from their first debut cd, along with others I haven't heard. My favorite is "Strobelite Honey". I am probably one of the youngest people to review this cd, but because my musical preferences have always been of East Coast music and its style, Black Sheep is definitely a must have.
