Sticky Fingaz Biography
While he may have been originally known as the frontman for rap group, ONYX, Sticky Fingaz has now transcended all expectations and made a name for himself as a bonafide solo rap star and actor.
Born Kirk Jones, the Brooklyn native began his career by performing with his cousin Fredro Starr. The pair were soon discovered by rap legend Jam Master Jay of RUN-D.M.C. They formed Onyx and in 1993 released their first album, Bacdafucup. The group released two more records before Sticky began his pursuit of a solo career. After making appearances on Eminem's album "The Marshall Mathers LP" and on Biohazard's "New World Disorder", Sticky released his first solo album in 2000 titled, "Black Trash: The Autobiography of Kirk Jones." All Music Guide said, "Black Trash stands as an impressive debut that blends Sticky Fingaz' two loves: film and hip-hop."
He also sought a side career as an actor and starred in a number of high profile films like Clockers, Dead Presidents and Next Friday. He also found his way to the small screen in guest starring roles on highly acclaimed shows like New York Undercover, Nash Bridges and The Shield. Most recently, Fingaz signed on to play a lead role in the upcoming UPN show, "Platinum." Produced by John Ridley ("The Three Kings") and Sofia Coppola and executive produced by Francis Ford Coppola, among others, the show is bound to draw attention to Sticky's talents.
His new album, "DECADE (But Wait, It Gets Worse)" pays homage to Sticky's staying power in the business and further proves he is here to stay.
