Onyx

Biography

A proudly rowdy trio from Queens, Sticky Fingaz, Sonee Steeza and Fredro Starr have been unleashing their potent brand of microphone fury since the early '90s. They scored a huge crossover smash in 1993 with their debut LP Bacdafucup, largely due to their breakout single "Slam." Their heavy beats and in-yer-face shout/raps were welcomed by millions of record buyers hyped by their aggressive sound. Also one of the earlier hip-hop groups to collaborate with rockers, they appeared on the Judgment Night soundtrack (1993) alongside Thrash band Biohazard. Onyx released a follow-up in 1995 and a third album in 1998, continuing their Hardcore tradition. In addition to recording, they have also acted in television and film, and Sticky Fingaz released a successful underground single in 1999.
