The 100 Best Native Tongues Songs

46. Black Sheep "Similak Child (Homogenized Remix)" (192)

Producer: Black Sheep
Album: 12"
Label: Mercury/Polygram Records

Black Sheep never disappointed with their B-sides and remixes, and the "Homogenized" remix to the brilliant album cut "Similak Child" testifies to their talents as producers and rappers. This version has a more plaintive feel, and Dres adjusts his lyrics just enough to make this remix practically a whole different song. The theme? Oh, typical Native Tongue fare: After a wild night of partying, Dres finds himself shacking up with a curvy but brainy Similac-reared farm girl from a part of Jersey so remote it feels like a different universe.
