Rapper-actor Fredro Starr has reteamed with his former Onyx bandmate Sticky Fingaz to record a new track for Starr's upcoming album, "Firestarr," which is due out early next year.
Hailing from Queens, New York, Onyx featured Sticky Fingaz, Fredro Starr, Big D.S., and DJ Suavé Sonny Caesar. The group is best remembered for its 1993 LP, "Bacdafucup," which sold over a million copies and spawned a crossover single, "Slam."
Starr had originally planned to issue the solo record in October, but he has since delayed the release in order to cut more music with Sticky Fingaz and rap outfit Tha Outlawz.
Starr also apparently will be keeping his current rap handle. His label, Koch Records, had first announced that Starr would be changing his onstage moniker to Firestarr, but that will instead just be the title of his new album(see "Onyx's Fredro Starr Inks Deal, Adopts "Firestarr" Tag").
to working on the "Firestarr" LP, Starr has just signed a seasonlong commitment to reprise his role as musician and romantic interest Quinton "Q" Brooks in the UPN TV series "Moesha."
Quinton proposed to Moesha during the show's September 6 season premiere, and Starr is scheduled to turn up, along with soul singer Ginuwine, for the October 16 episode of "Moesha."
Starr, who has appeared on the big screen in such films as "Clockers," "Black And White," and "Light It Up," has already completed his role in another flick, "Save The Last Dance," due out on January 12.
