We are very proud to present another HIP-HOP legend!
It all began with a thundering baseline and an unmistakably classic phrase – “this or that.”
One of the most widely recognised songs in rap music history, the 1991 sonic tour-de-force “The Choice is Yours” was hailed by VH1 in 2008 as one of the best rap songs of all time. The infectious anthem was also chosen last year for a voter registration campaign championing now President Barack Obama. And yet the man behind this masterpiece, Andres “Dres” Titus from the seminal group BLACKSHEEP, has barely scratched the surface of his nearly two-decade-long career.
He took the music industry by storm in the early 1990s as part of the groundbreaking collective Native Tongues. Performing alongside fellow rap heavyweights De La Soul, The Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah and A Tribe Called Quest, Dres instantly established himself as a gifted and masterful lyricist, being hailed by rap critics as “insightful, “prolific” and a hip-hop “trailblazer.”
Penning such Billboard standouts as “Flavor of the Month” and “Strobelight Honey” for the platinum-selling debut album A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing in 1991.
