The group was formed in 1988 and Onyx released its first 12" single, "Ah, And We Do It Like This", in 1990. The song revealed a jazz influence, unlike their later work. In 1991, Onyx was going to present a demo to Jam Master Jay at Def Jam, but Big DS and Sonee Seeza (then only known as Suavé) were in Connecticut at the time, so Fredro Starr called up his cousin Sticky Fingaz (who lived in Brooklyn). Once Sticky Fingaz joined the group, the group released Throw Ya Gunz in 1992. This is the Original/1st Pressing of their 1992 hit single "Throw Ya Gunz". This original pressing features the original artwork, not that black background with a yellow mean face cartoon image that was re-released in 1993.
