BLACK SHEEP
9 p.m., the Village. $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

You don't have to be an old hip-hop head to remember Black Sheep, a duo from Queens who rode the tail end of the Natives Tongues' wave (A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Jungle Brothers) of '90s hip-hop domination. If you went to basketball games or high school dances or listened to rap radio in the '90s, surely you remember “The Choice Is Yours” (“you can get with this, or you can get with that”). That song, along with an earlier single, “Flavor of the Month,” propelled Black Sheep's debut album, “A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing,” to gold status. A follow-up, released in 1994, didn't fare so well, and the duo, Dres and Mista Lawnge, soon went their separate ways. They reunited, briefly, in 2000 and then again in 2006, but Wednesday's show will feature Dres alone representing the Black Sheep name. Local heavyweights open. 607, who's lately been laying low, is bound to debut some new, really strong remixes he's been churning out on stage. He's joined by Rockst*r, who's fresh from a promo tour and an impressive set at the Showcase.
