Get ready because it’s all going down starting today with the release of platinum-selling group Onyx as they release their ninth studio album ONYX Versus Everybody, via Surface Noise/MNRK Music Group. Members Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz return to the boom-bap sound, the once signature sound of New York Hip Hop, to submit this 10-song album that captures the essence of what made the group a crossover hit with features by rappers Termanology, Harrd Luck, Ricky Bats, and Big Twin. Onyx Versus Everybody is produced by Fredro Starr and executive produced by Onyx and Omar “Iceman” Sharif. The first single, “Shoot Wit,” was received with much excitement by their fans, not missing a step with their lyrical wordplay and energy. Fredro Starr’s hardcore New York swagger envelops every lyric, and Sticky’s raspy voice and crazy energy, “Shoot Wit,” is a total headbanger. So, get your Tims and Carhartt suits because Onyx is coming to show you how it’s done.
From the first time, the legendary rap group stepped onto the music scene with their platinum-selling debut album Bacdafucup, they’ve always made noise. Songs like “Throw Ya Gunz,” “Slam,” and “Shifftee,” made them chart-toppers on both the Billboard and Radio charts and secured them into the pantheon of hip hop history.
Onyx is preparing for their highly anticipated VERZUZ battle against formidable opponents Cypress Hill, which takes place on Saturday, May 14 at 6 pm PT/9 pm ET at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles. The FIGHT NIGHT MUSIC face-off VERZUZ Battle will have Onyx and Cypress Hill going head-to-head for ten rounds rocking their illustrious catalog.
