Black Sheep "Flavor Of The Month" (The Source, 7/91)

"Along with DJ and incredibly talented Mista Lawnge, Dres busts out with fat rhymes on tracks. The Black Sheep should literally be viewed as the black sheep of the family - the Native Tongue family that is is (consisting of De La, Quest, The Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, etc). You won't find any dreadlocks here. The Black Sheep have more of a street approach combined with an image that makes them look like a pair of GQ cover boys ... "Flavor Of The Month" has a catchy mid-tempo beat (with a vicious kick) and an eerie bassline acceded by quick guitar samples, while the chorus hooks the ear with funky horns." Check out the visuals "Flavor Of The Month," cont'd below...

"The Black Sheep's multi-layered tracks are unique and progressive yet they definitely have the underground feel. Mista Lawnge's production abilities and Dres' smoothness-personified rhyme style make the Black Sheep something to keep an eye on in '91." - The Source, July 1991.
