Onyx back with the raw on WakeDaFucup

CDS_ONYX

It seems that as I dig thru the archives of video footage from Shades of Hip Hop video mixtapes, I find all sorts of gems relevant to the conversations of today. Back in 1998, Shades caught up with Onyx for our first interview. Although we didn’t know what to expect from the trio of Sticky Fingaz, Fredro Starr and Sonsees, we got a lot more than what we bargained for. It turned out to be one of the best interviews we ever did. You can see it for yourself in our On-Demand section of the video library on shadesradio.com.

And now Onyx is back with some vintage Hip Hop reminiscent of their classic flow. On Wake Da Fucup with D.O.D, they illustrate classic hardcore rhyming with no flashy bullshit. Nice.
