Onyx's new album #WakeDaFucUp is now available for streaming.
May the remaining hardcore hip-hop heads rejoice. South Jamaica, Queens veteransÂ Fredro StarrÂ andÂ Sticky Fingaz, AKAÂ Onyx, have returned with a new album titledÂ #WAKEDAFUCUP, a follow-up to their definitive 1993 debutÂ BacdafucupÂ two decades in the making.Â
The project, produced entirely by German production collective The SnowGoons, consists of fourteen original tracks and features guest appearances fromÂ Sean Price,Â Reks,Â Cormega,Â Dope D.O.D.,Â Snak The Ripper,Â Papoose,Â Makem PayÂ andÂ A$ap Ferg.Â Former Onyx members Big DS and Sonny Seeza (AKAÂ SuavÃ© / Sonsee) did not contribute to the project. It was executive produced byÂ Starr and DJ Illegal and mixed by J.S. Kuster, andÂ is brought to you by Mad Money Movement and Goon MuSick Records. (The artwork was handled by ALTERPROD.)
The SnowGoons have definitely been making a name for themselves in the rap game as of late, producing M.O.P.'s latest album Sparta as well their own Goondox project, a collaboration with EPMD's PMD and Sean Strange. Don't sleep.
Below, stream the albumÂ and watch the new video for "Whut Whut", a choice selection from the project. You can purchase a digital copy ofÂ #WAKEDAFUCUPÂ on iTunesÂ -Â CD and vinyl copies are also availableÂ here.Â
