The group released debut album ‘Bacdafucup’ in 1993, pro­duced by Run DMC’s Jam Mas­ter Jay and released on his JMJ Records label. The album which went plat­in­um, won awards and inter­na­tion­al recog­ni­tion, with the smash hit single ‘Slam’ peak­ing in the US Top 5, with magazine The Source hail­ing it as the record that intro­duced slam dan­cing into the hip hop scene. Two more songs from the debut ‘Throw Ya Gunz’ and ‘Shifftee’ garnered fur­ther hits. Onyx have released a total of twelve stu­dio albums, many remix albums, com­pil­a­tions and live albums. Three of the stu­dio albums went Top 10 in the Bill­board Hot 200 albums chart.
