Andres "Dres" Titus (born March 18, 1967) was the lead rapper of the alternative hip hop duo Black Sheep, which he formed in 1989 with Mista Lawnge. On its 1991 debut album, A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, Dres had a smooth rhyme flow, with a dose of light humor, which gave him praise in the hip hop community. Later, his style became more serious, with the release of Black Sheep's 1994 album Non-Fiction. Due to the lackluster sales of their sophomore album, Dres and Mista Lawnge split up and started independent projects.[1]

In 1999, credited as Dres the Black Sheep, Dres released a solo album titled Sure Shot Redemption. In 2000, Black Sheep reunited and recorded the EP, Redlight, Greenlight, and the title track of the film Once in the Life. In 2006, Dres released another solo album titled 8WM/Novakane. In 2009, Dres released an EP titled From the Black Pool of Genius: the Prelude, in preparation for his most recent solo LP, From the Black Pool of Genius, which was released June 2010.

Personal life

Dres was raised in the Astoria Houses in Astoria, NY and the Bland Houses (commonly known as "The Bland") in Flushing, NY. His family later moved to North Carolina.[2]

Dres is the father of Honor Titus, the singer of the punk-rock band Cerebral Ballzy.

Dres is of African American and Puerto Rican descent.[1]
