The rowdy Queens crew Onyx invaded the HOT97 studio this week to chop it up with Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg. Leading the convo, Stickty Fingaz and Fredro Starr discuss how they tranformed from street kids to top barbers in nyc to rappers. When Queens needed some goons, these guys came calling.

Peter Says:Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz talk about the original Onyx origins (all the way back to the Profile Records days), Red Alert fronting on them, their chance meeting with Jam Master Jay that changed their lives, stepping to The Fat Boys over a sample clearance, Fredro Star being a legendary barber, and how they were originally gunning for Das Efx’s spot.
