4.0 out of 5 stars Onyx is back........
This album is not as good as their last banger of 98 Shut Em Down, or as good as the ones before that for that matter. However it has some real bangers at the beginning of the album which vary and rid till about song 7 or so, after that it gets commercial and turns to the b.s. everyone is doing today, and if you know Onyx that is NOT them. This is still better than most...

3.0 out of 5 stars Well...... What Can I Say??? It's ONYX.....
OK..... Off the bat I gotta say its not necessarily a bad CD. Ive been listening to them since they first came out and if your lookin for innovative new shtuff then this isnt it. But if you want straight Onyx hardcore then you shouldnt be disappointed. Heres the pro's....... Some of the trax sound like they couldve been on the first CD, so this shows they havent lost...

3.0 out of 5 stars Well...... What Can I Say??? It's ONYX....., July 11, 2002

OK..... Off the bat I gotta say its not necessarily a bad CD. Ive been listening to them since they first came out and if your lookin for innovative new shtuff then this isnt it. But if you want straight Onyx hardcore then you shouldnt be disappointed. Heres the pro's....... Some of the trax sound like they couldve been on the first CD, so this shows they havent lost that Onyx power and ill be the first one to tell you I thought they did.
Heres the cons.... The title... I dont like it... Its kinda low to try to drain power off their first success by coming out with a BACDAFUCUP part II. The first one was a gem and they shoulda left it at that. Next is track 3 slam harder... I first heard this beat on AZ's new album Aziatic track 1. I thought it was real good but then I hear the same beat on this album... Wassup??????? Finally I didnt like how that track Slam Harder is censored on my CD when the rest of the CD is explicit. I dont get it...
But still it is Onyx... If you like their old shtuff go pick this up and give it some love... You cant be that disappointed unless you want ground breaking material.
Peace

3.0 out of 5 stars Just barely..., January 19, 2006
By 
Chandler "Infamous" (Atlanta (College Park), Georgia) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
I just barely give this 3 stars. I'll admit "Slam Harder" rocked my head about 3 summers ago, and I was DYING to get this album. I bought it and was pissed off. The first 4 or 5 tracks were good, then it goes down hill from there. The best song on there is the "Hold Up" song with the production from Havoc of Mobb Deep. No where near Onyx's expectations, and not even close to the previous 3 albums that they've made. I haven't given up on them yet, because I'm going to buy Backdafucup, All We Got Iz Us, and Shut Em Down, to hear how they really sound. This album is just unacceptable for any fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars very dissapointing, July 17, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
I love every onyx album except this one. The rhymes are still tight, but the beats on this album sound too mainstream, like nelly or jay-z, who I hate. I don't know if they changed DJs or something, but I would buy Shut Em Down or All We Got Iz Us before I bought this one. A waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Onyx is back........, July 13, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
This album is not as good as their last banger of 98 Shut Em Down, or as good as the ones before that for that matter. However it has some real bangers at the beginning of the album which vary and rid till about song 7 or so, after that it gets commercial and turns to the b.s. everyone is doing today, and if you know Onyx that is NOT them. This is still better than most of the records out there right now, and can supply any Onyx fan with some old style Onyx songs through song #7, so don't sleep because there is some whack songs on here (There is still some very good ones). Onyx is not pretenders they are the Kings of this hardcore crazy stuff like they say on the album, they just need to ditch the girly songs at the end and go back to Shutting them down with the full hardcore no nonsense albums we all loved. To diss Onyx because of this would be unfair, they have done so much for the hardcore and kept it real so much that they had to eventually drop a different type of feel for some songs to appeal to the masses of today (hip POP heads), and that does really suck to a hardcore Onyx fan. All and all if you aint down with these real cats then don't even bother listening to the first 7 songs, cop it for the commercial joints toward the end that you will enjoy. Onyx fans cop this for the 5 rugged songs that made Onyx famous and the ones we love to get wild too. Onyx is back, they can stay, peace.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to par but not all that bad..., July 15, 2002
By 
187 (Minneapolis) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
I must say that for only having 12 songs it really does a great job the ratio to songs I like to songs I hate is a very big difference. The only songs I dislike are Gangsta, Big Trucks, & Feel me. The songs that I cant stand but aren't the greatest are Calp and Rob 'Em & Onyx is Back. The rest of the tracks are great. I must say That Sticky Fingaz doesnt do the greatest to live up to his verses on past Onyx albums but Fredro steps up a bit. Overall a great album, could have used some more songs but still good...

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda dissapointed on this one guys, November 6, 2009
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
Yea so this cd is nothing like the first Bacdafucup they did back in what, 93? Well I guess that really explains why it isnt so great. As Onyx progresses threw their albums, they seem to get less and less gritty and grimmy. I think their first 2 cds were prolly the best sh** I have ever heard from these guys, which are Bacdafucup and All We Got Iz Us. This cd on the other hand, has a new style of beats and has really weak lyrics. They really took away their whole gritty N grimmy hardcore beats and their lyrics just arent as powerful. The songs worth hearing on this cd are Slam Harder, Bang 2 dis, Hood Beef, Bring em out dead, gangsta, and Hold up is an alright song too. Im not saying that I dont like this cd, its just that ever since JMJ died their music hasnt been at its greatest cuz JMJ really made them who they are today. I reccommend getting Bacdafucup first, then All We Got Iz Us, then either get Shut em Down or this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Onyx is Back !!, July 13, 2002
By 
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
First of all I must say...
For who ever thought Onyx CD will be like the others,they
must need a reality check.The world change,people change
and mature and they also get older,you cant stay immature
all your life,Onyx has come along way (10yrs) and they
still strong.They got deep on the song "Feel Me" with
the Sept 11th tragedy and that beat is nice and wise,
yeah the song makes you think.I also just ordered the
album "Shut'um Down" that came out back in 1998 I always
wanted to get it.Onyx is the best hip hop group ever,they
have energy and Drive.If your a true Onyx fan like I am
I would recommend this album and you will see how they
have grown,Stickys solo album was also tight last year
that he bought out last year

2.0 out of 5 stars WHY!?...I Don't Get It!!, July 10, 2002
By 
J. Harris "J-who" (Jacksonville, FL USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
What happen to the raw/shoot em up/just don't give a [you know what] onyx? I still like them, but every track is soft sounding....why did they name there 4th album after the 1st album?..It doesn't have the same vibe like "Bacdafucup" "Bacdafucup II" sounds like your everyday stuff you here and see on the radio and tv (sweet & weak) If you have this album already and you feel the same way I do, just take or send back "Bacdafucup II" and pop the 1st album back in you audio players if you want to hear some ruff and raw onyx that we all know

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to Bacdafucup Again, July 13, 2002

Chance McCrary (Winnetka, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bacdafucup, Part II (Audio CD)
Onyx came correct on this one. The whole album had me noddin' my head. Slam Harder's Welcome Back sample made it beyond gangsta. Everyone should buy this sequel to the classic original.
