      Black Sheep Returning To Rap Game
      By Kye Stephenson
      Date: 6/27/2005 3:45 pm


      Rapper Dres and producer/DJ Mr. Lawnge are returning to the Hip-Hop scene with a new album, 8WM.

      According to Dres, re-entering the game is just another chance at furthering the Black Sheep legacy and continuing their success.

      In 1991, Black Sheep released their seminal debut "A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," which reached #30 on the Billboard charts and ended up selling over a million records.

      The album spawned two massive singles, “The Choice is Yours” and “Flavor of the Month.”

      "Our record plays in a party everyday of the year...a lot of artists can't say that," Dres said of his previous hits. "If we were to get paid for every time our album was played, we would be millionaires."

      Guests on the album include Showbiz, Lord Finesse, Kwame, Dinky Bingham, Vitmain D, Bean One and others.

      To commemorate their entrance back into the Hip-Hop scene, the duo will appear at the Knitting Factory on July 5th as a part of the Discipline Series.

      Joining Black Sheep on stage will be Medina Green, Tom Chase, Dirty Nichols and others.

      Tickets for the Discipline Series event are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Doors open at 10pm.

      Black Sheep will also be hitting the road with De La Soul beginning July 18.

      To listen to new tracks you can visit www.blacksheeponline.com.

      Greetings, Sister Kentake!

      I think that the best thing to do would be to check out the site for future releases. It might be in stores, though.

      I disagree with you about the current state of hip-hop right now. Yes, if you turn on mainstream radio stations that play hip-hop (you forgot the independent stations and the college stations are listener sponsored, so they can play what they want), 90 percent of the time you will get some bogus music. On the independent stations and college stations, however, it is the opposite: 90 percent of the time, you'll get music that is good, uplifting, and just all around nice.

      As for B.E.T.....I can curse, rant, and rave about how horrible that network has become but instead, I'm just going to say this: they don't represent US, so we shouldn't look to them to reflect the image of what it actually means to be Black in today's society.

      I appreciate your passion about this subject; it is definately something that needs to be discussed and re-discussed until we get to the point where we won't have to discuss it anymore.

      and :cheers:
