Black Sheep - A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing [The Samples]



Members of the Native Tongues Posse, Black Sheep released their debut album A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing in 1991. A classic hip hop record, A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing never truly hit the mainstream as De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest's albums did. It's a shame... But A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing is a classic nonetheless. Thankfully, it's enshrined in The Source's Top 100 Hip Hop Albums list. Rightfully so. This album had everything: including raunchy references and obscure, diverse and eccentric samples! Just peep the tracklisting below and you'll get a feel for what I'm talkin' about. Plenty of rare ish to go around, no doubt! Fourty-eight samples in all, this sample set packs some serious punch: it's four and a half hours long! This set was pretty tough to compile, so I really really hope you get into it and enjoy it! Turn it up!!!

  4. I had a big post about the diparity in samples between the latest 90s sets and the ones from TI, Lil wayne, and Young Jeezy, but Firefox ate it. :(

    Anyway, this was like the 2nd hip-hop album I bought. Great job, Ivan!

  17. Any chance of a reup? This is one of the greatest selections ever assembled, from one of the greatest lps ever dropped, and it seems to be the only dead set on the site. Travesty of justice!

  24. A traditional hip hop history, A Hair in Sheep's Outfits never truly hit the popular as De La Spirit and A Group Known as Quest's collections did. It's a pity...
