The Song:

Hip-hop fans rejoice! Black Sheep frontman, Dres has managed to coordinate the Native Tongues reunion fans have been pining for. Dres joins Dave (Trugoy) of De La Soul, Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, and the elusive Mike Gee of The Jungle Brothers on "Birds Of A Feather" the latest scorcher off his new LP From The Black Pool Of Genius, now scheduled for release on June 29th. "It's a long time coming," says Dres of the track. "Birds Of A Feather" represents the beauty and strength of kinship and unity. Its even greater when your family is dope."

The track is a banger immediately standing out as one of the Black Sheep's most potent recent efforts. Thick kick drums and stinging snares provide a rocky backdrop sure to inspire the most jaded head-nodder. Tip and Dave's lyrical confidence blends well with Dres' melodic flow and Mike Gee's bravado. The track is not only another victory, but a coup for fast-rising producer Tough Junkie, who contributed a handfulu of beats to the new album.

The Background:

It all began with a thundering baseline and an unmistakably classic phrase - "this or that." One of the most widely recognized songs in rap music history, the 1991 classic "The Choice is Yours" was hailed by VH1 in 2008 as one of the best rap songs of all time. The highly respected Queens emcee Dres, along with DJing partner-in-crime William "Mista Lawnge" McLean took the music industry by storm in the early 1990's as part of the groundbreaking collective Native Tongues. Penning such Billboard standouts as "Flavor of the Month" and "Strobelight Honey" for the duo's platinum-selling debut album A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing in 1992, Dres would continue to crank out the hits on the group's second release, Non Fiction. After a brief reunion with Mister Lawnge in 2000, Dres again set his sights on recording. He released the innovative online-only album 8WM/Novakane in 2007. Now he's back in the studio, writing the next chapter of his storied career. Dres' highly anticipated new project, From the Black Pool of Genius, out Spring 2010, promises to pair thought-provoking lyrics with astounding beats constructed by a corps of new and established beatmakers. They include Bean One, Showbiz, Tough Junkie, P. Locke, Urban Soul Music Group, and Willie Evans. He's also got an impressive line-up of guest stars, including De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Rhymefest, AZ, Jean Grae, Rosie Perez, Psycho Les of The Beatnuts, and Tough Junkie, among others. Leading up to the release of his next full-length, Black Sheep have released a precursor EP, From The Black Pool Of Genius: The Prelude, available now. From The Black Pool Of Genius will be available on June 29th.
