Dres (born Andres Titus) is a rapper of the alternative hip hop duo Black Sheep. On their 1991 debut album A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, Dres has a smooth rhyme flow, with a dose of light humour. Later his style became more serious, which suits the name of the 1994 album: Non-Fiction. Shortly after this album, Dres and Mista Lawnge split up and started independent projects.[1] In 1999, Dres released a solo album Sure Shot Redemption. On the cover, he is credited as "Dres - The Black Sheep". In 2000, the duo reunited and recorded Redlight, Greenlight (EP) and the title track for the film Once in the Life. In 2006, just before the release of the Black Sheep album 8WM/Novakane, Mista Lawnge left the group to go solo. Mista Lawnge's contributions to the album are limited giving it the appearance of another solo album from Dres. A Tribe Called Quest member Q-Tip is his cousin.

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