Black Sheep are back and releasing a new album, From the Black Pool of Genius, on June 29th. Remember Black Sheep? I sure do. A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing is one of those albums I could go 10 years without listening to, but still know every word to every song. It was the shit in 1991!
But I couldn’t tell you what they did after that album. According to AllMusic, they put out a second album in 1994 and a third in 2006? Hmmm, somehow missed that.
Birds of a Feather is the first single on this new album and it includes other Native Tongues members, which makes it much more interesting. Q-Tip, Dave (aka Plug 2) from De La Soul and the Jungle Brothers‘ Mike Gee are all on the track.
Gotta say I did not think I’d be writing those names when I woke up today.
