Hear Every Sample On Black Sheep's Classic Debut LP On This 25th Anniversary Mixtape

On October 22nd, Black Sheep‘s debut album, A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing hit its 25th lap around the sun. Naturally, Wax Poetics and WhoSampled have teamed with the mighty Chris Read for another journey in sampledelic sounds with a 25th anniversary mixtape, that’s tailor-made for the crate-diggers, courtesy of their go-to selector. You can hear it in full down below, but if you’re looking to see and hear Black Sheep speak on their debut as well as the formation of the Native Tongues collective, there’s a first-of-its-kind Native Tongues documentary that’s in dire need of your support. Jump back to peep the trailer and pledge your funds.
