Onyx... only hardcore rappers left
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In a time (1998) when rap was ALL commercial and about money and cars, Onyx kept it real even though many critics said that Onyx was getting tired and their sound was getting old. The Rolling Stones have sounded virtually the same for 50 years and no one complained, why should Onyx change their sound? I guess these 40 year old reviewers from Chicago shouldn't be reviewing rap albums, because Shut Em Down was in a class all it's own in 1998. Still bumped heavily by me till today it showed Onyx doesn't care about what's making money or what's cool, they care about the meaning of the name "Onyx". A hardcore hip hop group.Check out the new site for more."

"When I bought this CD is picked it up w/ some extra money I had on a gift certificate for my birthday. Damn...I must say that it was the best blind investment of my life. Sure I had heard Onyx before and liked them but never got really into their music or bought one of their CD's. As soon as I listened to this I was blown away. It is just amazing....they lyrics, the beats the whole attitude and feel of the album. This is without a doubt the best rap album of '98 and one of the decades best. Despite no mainstream attention of any kind, this is ablum is easily one of my Top 5 for all time and you need to buy it."
Onyx strikes for a final time
