    I like Sticky and it’s an interesting idea but I don’t know how viable it actually is…

    Good Idea! I wonder how long he’s been tryin to get this project off the ground. The Hollywood game can cold hearted.

  • Curtis75Black

    How viable ? Come on P, You’re tripping. This is what Hip Hop Needs – A horizen broader done right. This is something Every Hip Hop fans should be rep and get behind with !! We all lived thru ONYX and If you never heard his first solo disc – “Black Trash “The Autobiography of Kirk Jones” Your Ass – Not you personally because I truly believe you heard that CLASSIC !! If this is on DVD I’m picking one up for each of my boys ause they ain’t borrowing a Damn Thing !!

    • Pierzy

      I love the Kirk Jones album and I think it’s criminally slept-one. When I said, “viable” I meant that it may not make the impact that it should…

      I hope I’m wrong though.

      • $ykotic

        I hear you P. But at least he has good actors in this. Sticky wasn’t bad at all in “Blade”. This will probably be one of those cult DVD’s.

        Hopefully waaaaaaayyyy better than Belly2.

    • shone jones

      Sticky still hasn’t learned from the Black Trash debacle. That record was crap. Anyone who actually like that album is either blind, crippled, or crazy.

      Concept albums in hip-hop do not work.

      • DV8

        what do you mean by “work”? If you mean it wont move much units then your right. Anything that takes brain power to create something unique doesnt really move units. I mean really… who ever thought of being creative and having skills?

        Prince of Theives (Prince Paul) and Black Trash (Sticky Fingaz) are great works of art. Anybody who disagrees must like the shit force fed to you on the radio.

        • DownSouth

          Yeah. And thats why cats like Canibus, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, should I go on?, don’t sell millions. This movie seems interesting. I’m a check it out.

          DOWN SOUTH!!!

        • EReal

          And you all wonder why we call you ignorant.

  • BeerGangsta

    This will be something to see for the summer. I hope he is playing a different role this time. Black People get caught up doing the same gangsta movies. People need to see something different.

  • yoprince

    never been a musical fan

  • BeerGangsta

    Hardcore boy can never soft. If he say so the boy go off. RIP Eazy E! I will see this on DVD. They should have took this to big scream. I give the movie 2 thumbs up. I have not seen it yet.

  • Naxious

    This looks soooooooo hot. Pretty original idea. Onyx records (the first few at least) always sound like movies anyway. This is gonna be hot. Coppin the DVD. And just like his solo album from ’01 i bet this gets slept on too unfortunately

  • corlione39

    • $ykotic

      Last Days, Slam, Bacdafucup, Throw your Guns, Shut ‘Em Down…

  • Curtis75Black

    Fools always think of Hip Hop as “Hard Beats and Hard rhymes, Nice Metaphors and Similies, Great story telling”- never mentions acting though. This is something done from a 1st time writer in Sticky putting something on the screen, why not support it ? We have no idea how this is gonna sound. I’m intrigued to the fullest, especially with the cast he has brought together. The Wiz, Little Shop of Horrors, Chicago and now this. How can you you hate ?

  • http://www.b3ta.com Universon

    This is all cool.
    Had a dope idea for something similar years ago (11 to be precise) but could never get it off the ground… thing is, didn’t Carmen – the Hiphopera (with Mekhi in it?) do this same thing?

  • RAW

    Black Trash was a classic underground ablbum those who says otherwise know nothing bout this!

  • Coke C

    This is going to be crazy!!! I’ve been waiting for this to drop for a minute now. The trailer looks superb. It was a matter of time before this was going to come together because Onyx and Sticky have been making songs that tell stories and play like a movie in your mind for years now. So all you real hip-hop catz out there with enough brains and appreciation for something of this magnitude ya better get up, get out, and show a little love and support. Ya dig!?!?!?

  • shone jones

    @DV8

    The excuse is played out. Try something else

    • DV8

      what excuse are you talking about?

      somebody said the movie wont work and I simply explained that real creativity and skills are not marketable in todays “dumb it down” hiphop. Which is why it wont work, but a hiphop purisr such as myself would definetly check it out.

    MONUMENTAL FOR HIPHOP . SYMBOLIC THAT SLAUGHTERHOS ARE COMIN OUT SAME DAY

  • dolo
