8WM/Novakane (CLEAN)

8WM/Novakane (CLEAN) by Black Sheep
Released: Oct 2006
Label: Bumrush
Black Sheep have fallen off the face of the earth and crawled back up a few times since 1991's acclaimed A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. Their most recent reincarnation still doesn't quite match the vibrant charm of their debut, but there's plenty to like here: the impeccably produced "Whodat?"; the smart, smoothly rhymed "Shorty" and "U Mean I Don't," a spot-on spoof of (trying too) hard MCs in the vein of Wolf's "U Mean I'm Not" that finds the MCs jocundly pimping substitutes, principals and Santa Claus.
