Black Sheep, Back Together and On Tour

The hip-hop collective known as Black Sheep — rapper Dres and DJ Mister Lawnge (pronounced "long") — have reunited after more than a decade for a North American tour and a new album.

The duo come from the same Native Tongue "family" of artists that spawned De La Soul, the Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest. They talk with News & Notes producer Christopher Johnson about why it took 10 years to re-enter the fray, and what's on the horizon.
