Bio

Very few personal details are known about rapper/actor Kirk Jones, known by the stage name of Sticky Fingaz or Kirk "Sticky" Jones.

He was born in New York City sometime after the Watts riots and lived in all five boroughs of New York

Joining the multi-platinum rap group Onyx in 1992, Sticky Fingaz broke into the music industry with one of the most menacing rap groups the East Coast had ever seen. Their first album, Bacdafucup, had double platinum success, at a time where multi-platinum rap sales were practically unheard of.

Sticky went on to release more albums with his crew Onyx but not without an eye on an acting career. He started as a drug dealing sidekick to cousin and Onyx member Fredro Starr in Spike Lee's Clockers while doing TV work on New York Undercover. His love for acting is intertwined with his love for making music.

As time went on, so did the albums and acting appearances. In 1995, Sticky and his crew released the acclaimed All We Got Iz Us.

During this time Sticky went on to do countless TV show spots, movies, modeling gigs, and more. He then returned in 1998 for Onyx's 3rd album, Shut Em Down.

But Sticky Fingaz' time to shine by himself off screen was in 2000, upon the release of his first solo album Black Trash: The Autobiography of Kirk Jones.

The album was a critical success, receiving four mics from The Source and most complimenting it as one of the most creative and energetic albums in hip-hop history.

However, due to weak publicity, no club/dance tracks, and extreme amounts of delay for the album's release, the album was not a financial success.

Jones was a regular on the short-lived UPN series Platinum, as Grady Rhames. He also played the part of Pvt. Maurice "Smoke" Williams in the drama series Over There, which depicts life as an American soldier in Iraq.

He played a recurring role as Kern Little, a gang leader and hiphop musician/producer on the FX series The Shield and also appeared in the Direct to Video and Sci-Fi Channel release, House of the Dead 2.

Jones' biggest TV role to date was when he was cast as the half-human/half-vampire Blade in Blade: The Series, based on the Wesley Snipes movies, which premiered in 2006 on Spike TV in the US.
