Cold Case Files
Onyx's shouting, in-your-face brand of high-volume rapping proved to be more at home in the slam pit than on the dance floor and brought the rap quartet instant chart success. Originally formed in Queens, NY, during 1990, the members of Onyx (Fredro Starr, Sticky Fingaz, Big DS, and DJ Suave Sonny Caeser) met while working as barbers. The band honed their rhyming skills and act by performing at local clubs, which eventually gained the attention of Run-D.M.C.'s Jam Master Jay, who signed the group to his label, JMJ Records, and even helped produce Onyx's debut full-length, Bacdafucup, in 1993. The album turned out to be a platinum-certified smash and the rest was history and the group went on to sell millions of records. Due to the Deaths of Members Big DS, X1 and Jam Master Jay, Onyx has once again come together to bring you "Cold Case Files" after the unsolved deaths of Jam Master Jay, Big DS and X1. The new album features the original members, Fredro Starr, Sun Cee, Sticky Fingaz. Also features recordings of X1of Big DS before their deaths.
