The Source is back with another edition of Up in the Source, this time getting history gems with Dres of Black Sheep. The legendary rapper takes us on a road of his career, sparking the session with when he first fell in love with Hip-Hop.
Dres detailed where you could hear Hip-Hop when he was growing up and the energy that resonated from the genre when people would congregate at parks and how music would be passed by constant dubbing of cassette tapes.
The Hip-Hop history lesson continues with how Dres and Mista Lawnge ran into each other in the Bronx, meeting De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and what led to their first album, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.
With the release of their debut album, Dres details how there was a misunderstanding of a diss between Black Sheep and Big Daddy Kane, how tracks from their demo made the album and more.
This episode of Up in the Source ends with the decision to run with “The Choice is Yours” as a single and eventually owning your own company. Check out the entire episode to hear those details and more historic anecdotes above.
