Bacdafucup: Part II is the first album released by Onyx after the group left Def Jam. Onyx returns after Sticky Fingaz, Fredro Starr and Sonny Seeza took time off to do solo albums and become film stars. Onyx made a deal with Koch Records to release one album and came back with the sequel to their very successful debut LP Bacdafucup. Onyx reunited for Bacdafucup: Part II.[1] The album cover even echoes that of the debut, although only the three remaining members of Onyx are featured on the new album.[2] The album consisting of 12 new tracks and included a return to their biggest hit with "Slam Harder", DR Period track uses a clever sample of the theme song from the TV show "Welcome Back, Kotter" to introduce the song and provide melody throughout.[3] However, "Slam Harder" is censored on the album when the rest of the LP is explicit. The song "Feel Me" was recorded on the night of September 11, 2001 and dedicated to the events that happened that day in the USA.[4]


Four singles from this album were released: "Hold Up", "Big Trucks/Bring 'Em Out Dead", "Slam Harder/Hold Up" and "Slam Harder/Bring 'Em Out Dead"

Bacdafucup: Part II came a decade later, and the passion and energy behind it wasn't nearly as believable as it was back in the early 1990s.[12] Onyx claims they're back, but not in the form we expected them to be in. They should have thought about what they were naming this LP before it was released, because with this title, many had high expectations, it's nowhere near being a complete travesty. Is this album commercial? More than one may expect.[13] This LP has gotten horrible reviews by critics as well as die hard Onyx fans. After the incredible Sticky Fingaz solo album or the last very dense Onyx LP ("Shut 'Em Down"), this album does seem somewhat lazy and sloppy.[14]
