It seems that Sticky Fingaz has experienced something of an epiphany. On Black Trash, the former lead screamer of Onyx has found humility and a metaphysical alter ego, Kirk Jones, an unrepentant player whose short life and death is related on this record in wide-screen psychodrama. But have no fear, Sticky Fingaz may have developed a cerebral edge but he's as raucous and rowdy as ever. Among the other superstar actors on this boom-bap teleplay is Raekwon, who features on the hook to the introspective Rockwilder-produced "Money Talks." Rah Digga plays a formidably frosty judge on the courtroom drama "State vs. Kirk Jones," while (as defending attorney) Redman fails to keep his client from the clink. Eminem provides the honky chorus on the operatic "What If I Was White," in which Kirk muses what would happen if is he was the "color of cocaine." Fellow Onyx thug Fredro Starr (now known as Firestarr) appears on the fiery "Get It Up." Once Kirk reaches his predicted (sticky) end, Mr. Fingaz is left with the realization that "it's easier to get a gun than an education" before unexpectedly breaking into a faithful rendition of Louis Armstrong's "Wonderful World"; a fitting conclusion to this ghetto cabaret. --Chris Campion

This album is one of the most underrated albums I've ever heard in my life. It's never mentioned among the classic albums that the Hip-Hop culture has produced in the last 30 years. Sticky Fingaz here presents to us a very entertaining story of his maniacal alter ego Kirk Jones and the trials and tribulations he went through. Sticky Fingaz's energy and flow never fails in any track on the album, but there are a few songs have less repeatable value, but they are still top-notch songs in their own right. The whole story flows together very well, and only a couple times does it seem to get a little cloudy to understand what is going on. All the songs match with where the story is headed to as well.

Sticky Fingaz opens the story with the intro. The very beginning of the intro sounds like a start to a movie anway, and then it starts with the story. "Come On" is the very first song on the album. He has a lot of energy in this track, but at times I just can't feel it, but the song is still very good, with a good beat and good lyrics. "My Dogz Iz My Gunz" is a real banger for the album. It features Black Child of Murder Inc. Black Child really spits well on the track, but he can't outdo Sticky's antics on the track. It's cool how he compared his guns to dogs in the song. "Not Die'n" is another banger on the disc. It's short (2:21) and sweet. He talks about how he done all kinds of stuff and he's still alive to tell about it and how nobody can kill him. Sticky has that mad energy showcasing on this track as well. "Money Talks" featuring Raekwon is unique in a good way. He is money on this track, and it is awesome how he describes himself being money. Everything he said about himself (money) is true too. "Why" is an excellent track with X1 and Still Livin.

Look as hard as you want but chances are pretty good that you'll never find an artist who can mix so many crazy topics into one album. Sticky Fingaz manages to speak on everything from ghetto politics to greed to religion and do it all with the same out-of-control insanity that put him on the map as the frontman of Onyx. While the idea of creating an alternate universe seperating a rapper's stage name and his government one is nothing new, Sticky brings one of the most unique and incredible adventures ever captured on wax while watching it all play out like a Broadway musical.
As "Blacktrash" opens with the loud sound of the Universal theme blaring through the speakers, we immediatly know that this album will be like nothing that we've heard in a long time. Sticky Fingaz (a.k.a. Kirk Jones) doesn't just tell wild stories in his rhymes, he connects them all together for one crazy LP. He speaks as the "almighty dollar" on "Greed" and ponders what it would be like to be Caucasion on "What If I Was White". During the interludes, he has a heart to heart with his conscience (played by Omar Epps). When Sticky's Jones is finally nabbed for a robbery turned homicide, he is called before a court of his hip-hop peers including Redman, Canibus, and Rah Digga on "State Vs. Kirk Jones". As crazy as things get through out it all though he dares to slow it down and aplogize to all the sisters for the physical and mental abuse that men have caused them on "Sister I'm Sorry". The same angry guy with the crazy methaphors is able to pull off a type of sensitivity that hasn't been seen since Pac did "Keep Ya Head Up".
"Blacktrash" isn't the average solo debut.

On his solo debut, Sticky Fingaz brings forth a solid collection of tracks, meshed into a real nice storyline. From beginning to end, the album suffers from very few weak points.
State vs. Kirk Jones features an all-star cast, which creates the perfect courtroom setting on a bangin track, helping to elevate the album's storyline.
Other noteworthy tracks include Come On, Money Talks, and the poignant Sister I'm Sorry.
The one real weak point the album has is on What If I Was White, an awful track featuring an unfunny cameo by Eminem.
Other than that, "Black Trash (The Autobiography Of Kirk Jones)" is a bangin album from start to finish. Sticky's charisma and delivery are at the usual peak we've come to expect from him. And the production for the most part is top-notch.
If you're a fan of good, solid hip-hop, this album should be in your collection.

For anyone who is not familiar with Sticky Fingaz front man from the iconic and influential rock/rap group Onyx you must not be a true hip hop fan. Onyx had their run in the 90's with a few hits and created an entire high octane, adrenaline filled brand of hip hop. Their front man Sticky Fingaz who was far more lyrically inclined than his band mates managed to crank out a classic album in 2006. I enjoyed this album very much due to the fact that it was wasn't just a run of the mill rap album. It was more of a cinematic hip hop rhapsody...The order flows well and only compliments the story that is this album. I can go on and on about how this album is overlooked when it comes to classic hip hop albums, but I dare you to find flaws in this project. The creativity, the word play and even the guest appearances all make this album one of the best in the last ten years. The only thing I regret is that Sticky Fingaz will not be able to produce another album that will rival this one. Stand Out tracks: My Dogz Iz My Gunz, Cheatin', Lickin' Off In Hip Hop...
