Kirk Jones (born in Brooklyn, New York, alias Sticky Fingaz or Sticky or Lay-Z-i) is an American rapper and actor, a member of hardcore hip hop group Onyx.
In 1991 Jones entered the Queens based rap group Onyx along with cousin Fredro Starr, Sonsee, and Big DS. In 1993 the group released their debut album entitled Bacdafucup. It proved to be a commercial success and eventually went multi-platinum, largely due to the well known single "Slam".
Since then he has released four other albums with Onyx, as well as two solo albums. He released his debut solo album in 2001 which was titled Black Trash: The Autobiography of Kirk Jones, a concept album that followed the (fictionalized) life of Kirk Jones in a story line fashion as he is released from prison and then ultimately his death. The album was a critical success being noted as very creative with substantial content, though it didn't gain much commercial recognition despite featuring well known artists such as Eminem, Raekwon, Redman, Rah Digga and Canibus. In 2003, he released his second album Decade "...but wait it gets worse" which was less well-received by critics and gained even less mainstream acknowledgement. Featuring on this album were performances from Fredro Starr and Omar Epps. Read Full Bio >>
He has also collaborated with various artists, including Eminem on his Marshall Mathers LP, and Snoop Doggy Dogg on No Limit Top Dogg. He has also appeared on albums by MC Eiht (Underground Hero), Biohazard (New World Order), Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz (Make It Reign), Pete Rock (Soul Survivor), Mobb Deep (The Infamous Archives), Dead Prez (Turn Off The Radio Vol 2), and others, as well as miscellaneous tracks by Benzino (Go Hard Remix), Knoc-Turn'Al (Eastwest Shyt), Da 5 Footaz (Unleash), Bang Em Smurf & Domination (One Way Or Another), and others.
He has stated that he enjoys reading specifically Marvel comic books particularly X-Men.
