Bald-headed, headbangin’ early ‘90s rap group Onyx are being rebirth as Yung Onyx. The new version of the group features rowdy teenage rappers instead of the founding members (who are now in their 30s...ancient in rap years) yet keeps the brand name.

"There's no more groups in the game now who bring that raw street s**t," original member Fredro Starr told Allhiphop.com of the young rappers, one of which is the son of Onyx's Big Kie. "They don't rap about jewelry and cars…they rap about the block."

The group is being launched by Starr, who sees them as sharing the “same rough edge, [but] with their own contemporary spin.” Yung Onyx features MCs Khaos, 18, Khaos' cousin Skitso, 19, M.I., 16, and R&B singer Primo Starr, 19.

Wait...an R&B singer? The Onyx didn’t have no R&B singer! They screamed their hooks like guys who were about to burn your friggin' house down!!!

"They bring energy to the game and a crazy stage performance," Starr says of the new group. "Onyx already had a million fans worldwide for over ten years, [and] Yung Onyx is for their little brothers. Like they say, history always repeats it self."

I hope not, bro…’cause if you recall, Onyx was kind of a one hit wonder and disappeared off the charts after that first album. Yikes!

Yung Onyx’s debut CD is titled Bangout, and was released on Sept. 11 through South Side Records. The first single is "In Da Hood Like."
