    Sticky Fingaz, otherwise known as Kirk Jones, presents an ambitious hip-hop outing that draws on a wide variety of influences in service of a theatrical vision of rap as multi-media experience. BLACK TRASH is packaged as the soundtrack to a nonexistent film. While this is an idea that's been pursued before, Jones so thoroughly transforms the gangsta aesthetic through his cinematic conceptualism that it seems like a completely fresh notion. The use of film soundtrack-style backing tracks and melodic structures that could have come straight from a Broadway musical, as well as the theatrical context, make the violent elements of the lyrics much more palatable. And the spoken interludes have a much more substantial reason for being than on most rap albums. The gem here is undoubtedly "What If I Was White," which features Eminem, and finds Jones tackling the racial turnabout in a novel, winningly humorous way. And the misogynist's apology "Sister I'm Sorry" is as welcome as it is overdue.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (2/15/01, p.78) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...[This] has some great moments....[It] manages to bring some new ideas and energy to the rap game."
    Uncut (8/01, p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Kirk Jones' extraordinary LP merits reassessment: it runs the gamut from satiric outrage to gospel rapprochement..."
    Vibe (p.76) - "[E]ven when he deviates from the script, like on the Eminem-assisted single 'What If I Was White,' he's funny, insightful, and one helluva storyteller."
    Vibe (12/00, p.199) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...An engaging fictional account of the life of an ex-con, Sticky finds balance between acting and rapping....proving that [he] is a lot more thoughtful than he used to be..."
    The Source (12/00, p.252) - 4 mics out of 5 - "...An artistic apex....arguably hip-hop's most visual work of the new millenium...a cinematic experience....a hip-hop treasure."
    NME (Magazine) (6/9/01, p.40) - 7 out of 10 - "...Magic realism, hip-hop style..."
