From the first time the legendary rap group Onyx stepped onto the music scene with their platinum-selling debut album Bacdafucup, they’ve always made noise. As they prepare for their highly anticipated VERZUZ battle against formidable opponents Cypress Hill, members Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz return with their new single “Shoot Wit,” available today via Mad Money/MNRK Music Group. Onyx doesn’t miss a step with their lyrical wordplay and energy that made them a notable name within hardcore hip hop. With Fredro Starr’s hardcore New York swagger enveloping every lyric and Sticky’s raspy voice and crazy energy, “Shoot Wit” is a total headbanger.
With all this momentum, the Platinum-selling group is also preparing for the release of their ninth studio album ONYX Versus Everybody dropping on May 13. A return to the boom-bap sound, the once signature sound of New York Hip Hop, this 10-song album 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. So, get your Tims and Carhartt suits because Onyx is coming to show you how it’s done.
On Saturday, May 14 at 6 pm PT/9 pm ET, it all goes down at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles for the FIGHT NIGHT MUSIC face-off VERZUZ Battle between Onyx and Cypress Hill on their illustrious catalog. Fans can purchase tickets (click here) as well as check them out on Triller or at www.verzuztv.com.
