Founding Onyx Member Dead After Cancer Battle

Rapper BIG DS, a founding member of hip-hop act ONYX, has died after a battle with cancer.

Big DS reportedly succumbed to the deadly disease on 22 May (03), leaving his rapper pals distraught.

Onyx initially consisted of STICKY FINGAZ, FREDRO STARR, Big DS and SONEE SEEZA, but following the release of the group's 1993 platinum debut, BACDAFUCUP, Big DS left the group to pursue a solo career which never materialised.

The remaining members of Onyx; Starr, Fingaz, and Seeza will release the group's fifth album TRIGGERNOMETRY on 31 October (03).
