"Bacdafucup" was the 19993 debut from the Hip Hop group, Onyx. Consisting of Sticky Fingaz, Sonsee, Big DS and Fredro Starr, the group made a massive impact with their unique take on underground East Coast rap with a hardcore style taken from that which the Southern Rap scene had formed to make it what they would for this breakthrough cut. The production here comes from Chyskillz, Kool Tee and Run-D.M.C.'s late Jam Master Jay.
1. "Bacdafucup" (Intro)
Off a hyped introductory recording, you see that here they continue things here with a hardcore track which has them raging through with a track which has them ripping through the material as they take on all of the people who aren't down for what they are into. It is a banger of a cut and gets things off to a strong start.
3. "Throw Ya Gunz"
We move into one of the big singles which made them such heavy names in Queens Rap as they power through with a heavy tune which sees them on some slapping breaks to guide them through as they come with unpredictable rhymes which have them screaming it all out throughout to show how they differ from others.
4. "Here 'N' Now"
With the rough chant acting as an introduction to the music at the start, you see that they get you into a rage before they throw down their heavy rhymes on the bouncy Chyskillz beats. It has them continuing the same sorts of things with the content of the rhymes staying largely the same, but with some fresh elements to vary it a little.
5. "Bust Dat A*s" (Lude)
6. "Atak Of Da Bal-Hedz"
In one of a couple of appearance from Kool Tee, you see that here we have a dark tune which really reminds you what the time was like when it came to the underground sound in New York. It finds that they come with a flow which has them barking out their thoughts as they go hard on the beats which they were given.
7. "Da Mad Face Invasion" (Lude)
8. "Blac V****a Finda"
Moving content of their rhymes on a little, here you see that they turn their attention towards the girls on this one. They make little attempts to alter their style with their raging style as they ride the pounding beats which sample Run-D.M.C's "Peter Piper". It is just as explicit as all others up to this point and nothing you don't expect.
9. "Da Bounca N***a" (Lude)
10. "N***a Bridges"
Here you have your typical Gangsta rap track as the two of them show how well the West Coast material has translated over to this end with their approach and heavy murder raps which sound to be very much of-the-time in every aspect. It keeps the high standards up whiel they tick to what they are good at.
11. "Onyx Is Here"
With a bit of an Old School feel to the way the production is done, you see that here you get one which has them getting to the peak of the quality in the album with this one as it has them moving towards work which has them coming out with work which has them drawing clear influences from the early Rap Rock of Run-D.M.C..
This was probably the most well-known track form the album as it was a killer single form the group and finds tem working on come exciting material which you can't help but go down into as they make their Gangsta rap flows get to the stage where you aren't really bothered by the viciousness of the rhymes when the rest of the stuff is one such funky form.
13. "Stik 'N' Muve"
On this one you have a track from them which has them moving things on a bit with them riding beats which change the way they are made to rhyme as they must calm it down slightly in order to adapt to the production which they ride. They do ne as an instructional to tell people exactly how you get away with muggings.
14. "Bichasbootleguz" (Lude)
After expressing their disproval of boogleggers, you have a tune from them which has them returning to the extreme raps which take things to their limits to show just how far they are willing to take their rhymes to express how they see their life to be out in Queens. The erratic frequent switches in rhyme styles are backed up with their common tag team rhymes and in keeps you interested.
By this point you should have a good idea of what their music is aboout and I feel that by this point, this one just sounds very general form them and doesn't do anything that special, but the intense way in which they go about delivering the lyrics makes sure that you don't lose interest in what they do to any degree.
17. "Da Nex Niguz"
On the final proper tune from the album you see that they get some very different beats as Kool tee chooses to calm things out into a style which was the other side of underground East Coast work. It also them to do one which has them to get into some storytelling and adapt the flows to fit in to something which contrasted from what you got elsewhere on it.
18. "Getdafucout" (Outro)
If you like one track on here, then you will like them all, but for me its sound was a bit too repetitive, and the only real reason why you don't really notice this is because they are so powerful with each line of the album (and even in the interludes). However, if you are into your hardcore East Coast Rap of the early nineties, then you will certainly like this album.
