*imagine "excursions" by atcq playing in the background* [imho, one of the best album openers in music history; also their use of the last poets sample = genius]

When you've looked for a shirt for so many years that you're happy to even find it in a size small! Late 80s UK Jungle Brothers tee.. Tuffff. Now just need to search another 10-15 years to find an XL. #JBeezOnTheRun #RapTees #NativeTongues

#sundayvibes | #Blacksheep - A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing ..... I'll never forget walking around downtown NYC playing this on my first visit to Manhattan it felt like I'd come back home to visit the smells the views and this in my ears fast was almost a spiritual pilgrimage... fast forward a decade or so later and I bumped into @blacksheepdres in Camden before his show and was laced with his signature on what is one of the best #HipHop albums ever made 26 years ago today. #RapTapes #NativeTongues #MisterLawnge #howwasyourflight #RIPChrisLighty

26 years ago on 22 October 1991, Black Sheep released their debut album. As part of the Native Tongues family @blacksheepdres and Mista Lawnge brought a new direction to hip hop. Back in 1991, I used to get my auntie to tape Yo! MTV Raps for me and on the top 10 countdown ‘Flavor of the month’ came on and that’s what introduced me to the duo driving their Ice Cream truck around, it didn’t fit in with the gangsta rap era of that time (Original Gangster was number 8). When they dropped the remix of ‘The choice is yours’ it blew up. The album was full of timeless music with ‘Have U.N.E. pull?’, ‘try counting sheep’ and even ‘Strobelite Honey’ could be applied to Tinder dates these days. The ‘Similak child’ remix came out late 1992 and surpassed the original with those squeaky horns, moody bassline and thumping piano which would be later used to drive Gravediggaz’s ‘Constant Elevation’. #blacksheep #awolfinsheepsclothing #1991 #dres #mistalawnge #thechoiceisyours #strobelighthoney #flavorofthemonth #trycountingsheep #similakchild #nativetongues #haveunepull

#SundaySoundtrack the debut of #BlackSheep entitled 'A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing' which was released on this day back in 1991! The duo consisted of Dres and Mista Lawnge among their accolades was being the first #HipHop act on Jay Leno's version of #TheTonightShow. As a duo their flows worked well with other...Mista had the braggadocio hard punchlines while Dres flow felt more witty and conversational with the listener.

Let's face it y'all already know 'The Choice Is Yours' since it is one of the recognizable tracks in #rapmusic...If you haven't sung along to 'Engine, Engine Number 9...' verse you haven't lived properly. 'U Mean I'm Not' takes a swipe at gangsta rap with a narrative of a kid with over the top reactions to normal morning routines. If you been in a club you can relate to 'Strobelite Honey' when someone looks good until the club lights come on 😂...'Pass the 40' seems to be an accidental posse cut with the late #ChrisLighty and a 15 yr old #ChiAli. 'Black With NV' is still relevant today speaking on race relations.

Overall, this joint still kicks and separates them from the rest of the #NativeTongues. The wordplay and satirical narratives on the album were ahead of its time in my opinion. In hip hop circles, this album is considered a landmark and one of the best rap albums ever.
