What is Sticky Fingaz's Net Worth?

Sticky Fingaz is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and director who has a net worth of $1 million. Also known as Kirk Jones, Sticky Fingaz is best known as a member of the hardcore hip hop group Onyx. In addition to his many albums with the group, he has had his own solo recording career. As an actor, Fingaz has appeared on television in such series as "Over There" and "The Shield," and in such films as "Clockers," "Lockdown," "Breaking Point," and "A Day in the Life," the lattermost of which he also wrote and directed.

Early Life and Education

Sticky Fingaz, whose real name is Kirk Jones, was born on November 3, 1973 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Growing up, he was involved with a local street gang whose primary criminal activity was petty retail theft; this is what earned him the sobriquet Sticky Fingaz, referring to the proclivity for stealing. After moving with his family to Bloomfield, New Jersey, Jones began attending the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan. When he was 16, he moved out of his mother's house and started living with his cousin Fredro Starr in Queens.


The rap group Onyx was formed in 1988 by schoolmates Fredro Starr, Big DS, and Sonny Seeza. In the summer of 1991, the members were stuck in a traffic jam when they met music producer Jam Master Jay, who gave them two months to submit a demo to his record company. Upon the arrival of the deadline, Big DS and Seeza were unable to come to the studio to record, so Starr was asked to bring his cousin Jones instead. After recording two songs with Starr, Jones joined Onyx under the stage name Sticky Fingaz. The group went on to release its debut studio album, "Bacdafucup," in 1993. Fueled by the success of the hit single "Slam," which reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100, the album eventually went multi-Platinum. Onyx released its second studio album, "All We Got Iz Us," in 1995. That was followed by "Shut 'Em Down" in 1998, which debuted at number ten on the Billboard 200 and launched three singles. After that, in early 1999, Onyx was removed from Def Jam Recordings due to a corporate acquisition.

Three years after leaving Def Jam, Onyx returned with the album "Bacdafucup: Part II," released by Koch Records. Following that, in the summer of 2003, the group released "Triggernometry." Onyx didn't put out another original studio album until 2014's "#WakeDaFucUp," on which Sonny Seeza doesn't appear. The group's next studio album was "Black Rock," released in 2018. The year after that came "SnowMads." Subsequent albums have included "Onyx 4 Life," "1993," "Onyx Versus Everybody," and "World Take Over." Onyx also released a collaborative album with the Dutch hardcore hip hop group Dope D.O.D. entitled "Shotgunz in Hell." Elsewhere, Onyx has worked on various soundtrack albums, including for the television series "Silicon Valley" and "Ted Lasso."

Solo Recording Career

In 2001, Fingaz released his debut solo album, "Black Trash: The Autobiography of Kirk Jones," a concept album focused on a fictionalized version of himself. It was a critical success. Fingaz released his second solo album, "Decade: '…but wait it gets worse'," in 2003. His third solo album, "It's About T.I.M.E.," didn't come out until 2019; released exclusively through his website, it was accompanied by a musical film telling the story of his life.
