Black Sheep – The Choice Is Yours (Official Video)

 

Black Sheep is an American hip hop duo from QueensNew York, United States, composed of Andres “Dres” Vargas Titus and William “Mista Lawnge” McLean. The duo was from New York but met as teenagers in Sanford, North Carolina, where both of their families relocated. The group was an affiliate of the Native Tongues, which included the Jungle BrothersA Tribe Called Quest, and De La Soul. After getting together in 1989, Black Sheep debuted in 1991 with the hit song “Flavor of the Month” and later released its first album, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, which gained them praise and recognition in the hip-hop community for the album’s unique rhythms and intelligent often humorous lyrics. After six years together, Black Sheep disbanded in 1995, citing creative differences.

Initial career and break up (1989–1995)

Black Sheep was formed in 1989 by Andres “Dres” Vargas Titus and William “Mista Lawnge” McLean. Black Sheep was the first hip-hop act to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno after the departure of Johnny Carson.

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing charted three times on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1992 with “The Choice Is Yours (Revisited)” (#9), and “Strobelite Honey” (#1). Black Sheep was also featured on the remix of Vanessa Williams‘s single “Work to Do” (#8). The group’s relationship with its label, Mercury/PolyGram, allowed Dres to establish a boutique label through which he could sign his own acts. Mercury distributed the imprint, which was called One Love, through PolyGram’s Independent Label Sales division rather than PolyGram Group Distribution. However, only one full-length title was ever released, the only album by affiliated act the Legion, titled Theme + Echo = Krill (One Love/Mercury/PolyGram Records 124 029), from 1994.

The group’s second album, Non-Fiction, was released later that year. Because of virtually no promotion and a generally poor reception, the album managed only lackluster sales.

Aftermath

Dres was featured on the second Handsome Boy Modeling School album White People, on the track “First…and Then.” In 2006, Dres released an online-only album titled 8WM/Novakane8WM stands for Women with Women with Weed with Wine with Me. According to AllHipHop.com, Mista Lawnge has changed the spelling of his name to Mr. Long. He also released a solo project called “The Class of 89” in 2006. Dres appeared on the 1990s remix of Nas‘ February 2007 song “Where are They Now?

In 2008, the single “The Choice is Yours (Revisited)” was ranked number #73 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs. The song was featured in a commercial for the 2010 Kia Soul.
