Onyx Preview “Wakedafucup” & Recall Final Words With Notorious B.I.G.
by OMAR BURGESS
Onyx explain their global view of Hip Hop, working with Snowgoons and beating Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic” at the 1993 “Soul Train Awards.”
With aggressive tracks such as the iconic “Slam” or their latest track, “Wakedafucup,” it’s easy to fall into the trap of assuming Onyx simply reserves their high energy level for the recording booth. That would be an incorrect assumption. When Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz call from Samara, Russia at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time—due to the 12-hour time difference between Los Angeles and Samara—the pair are just as amped up as they sound on wax.
Sticky Fingaz yells, “Wake the fuck up!” at least twice. Maybe it’s in jest, given the early interview time, or maybe he’s dead serious in regards to how Onyx feel about Hip Hop. Either way, he and more.
