Onyx all we got iz us 1995 full album tracklist


All We Got Iz Us is the second album from American hardcore rap group Onyx. It is widely considered to be a great follow up to their debut Bacdafucup (1993) with many fans actually citing it as Onyx's best album. Turning away from the more humorous approach of their debut, All We Got Iz Us had an overall darker and more serious tone, dealing with subjects such as suicide, heavy substance abuse and racism. For example, the intro/opening track features a split-personality monologue: Sticky Fingaz threatening himself at gunpoint, eventually committing suicide.

Two charting singles were released from the album, "Last Dayz" which made it to 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 and 10 on the Hot Rap Singles and "Live Niguz", also known as "Live!!!", made it to 17 on the Hot Rap Singles and 81 on the R&B charts.

Music videos were released for the tracks Last Dayz, All We Got Iz Us, Walk In New York and Live Niguz, the last being influenced by the 1995 hip-hop film The Show.

In 2008, Vibe magazine named it the best-produced album of 1995 and listed it as one of twenty albums all hip hop fans must own (but may have missed).

The instrumental of "Last Dayz" was used in the film "8 Mile" during the rap battle scenes. Sampled excerpts from Sticky Fingaz' (third) verse in "Last Dayz" makes up the chorus of the Vinnie Paz song "Drag You to Hell" (2010, produced by DJ Kwestion).
