Dres & Jarobi Plug In, Amp Up & Rock Out (Audio)

Dres (n/k/a Black Sheep Dres) and Jarobi (A Tribe Called Quest) go way back. Before EvitaN (their group together), these two New York City MCs were founders in the Native Tongues movement, bringing knowledge for your mental over grooves for your backside.

“Ain’t No Day That The Sun Don’t Shine” maintains that level of lyrical density, as each artist (along with Yaw) tears into the mic. However, unlike the dancier and jazzy soundscrapes of Black Sheep and A.T.C.Q., this is sheer Rock & Roll with a downbeat. The Tommy Boy Records single has that edge, intensity, and bang to let listeners know it’s real—and these veterans shine like the sun, even in darkness.
