Black Sheep

It's a bit of a throwback this Thursday, January 12, at the notorious Blunt Club's second throwdown of the new year. Nineties NYC rappers Dres and Mista Lawnge, a.k.a. Black Sheep, are back together and bringing their silver tongues to Hollywood Alley in Mesa, on a bill with resident DJs Hyder, Tricky T, and Richie Rich (a bit of a nostalgic presence himself, having been the DJ for 3rd Bass back in the day). We haven't heard much from Black Sheep since the mid-'90s, so we'll be curious to hear how the duo's rhyme styles have evolved since the days of "The Choice Is Yours," the hit from their classic debut, A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. As always, the 21-and-over party bumps from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., and for this round the admission is a ten-spot.
