Sticky Fingaz 'Jackin For Beats' (1999)


















Back in '99, Onyx's front man set off his solo career with this dope white label, throwing a few shots at a newcomer called 50 Cent over a barrage of late 90s Tunnel bangers.

For the uninitiated, 50 had worked with Onyx in '98 as they both came up under Jam Master Jay. He then signed with Trackmasters and dropped the excellent 'How To Rob' which caused a few rappers (namely Sticky, Raekwon, Ghostface and Jay Z) to catch feelings. I thought that was kind of stupid given that the chorus was 'This aint serious/being broke can make you delerious' but thats rappers for you.

  1. I thought I was the only person who felt that it was stupid for some of the artist to take offense to the how to rob record.

  2. This is certainly a helluva lot better than Sticky's solo album, but I fuck with that Onyx & Havoc Hold Up joint from 2002.
