Da Mad Face Evolution: A Phone Conversation With Sticky Fingaz

By Scott Tre

The early 1990's birthed a number of rap groups centered around a single, colorful personality.  Even a casual observer could pick out that one group member that seemed destined for greatness.  Some people just radiate a certain energy that demands its own showcase.  Though Sticky Fingaz never achieved solo success a la Busta Rhymes, one would be hard pressed to say that he squandered his chance at stardom.  Via numerous acting roles in film and television (including a stint as the small screen incarnation of Blade), Sticky has built quite the resume.  He has not left his recording career behind, however.  The Onyx brand is alive and well and Sticky plans to maintain that energy and channel it down as many unexpected avenues as possible.
