According to Film Junk, former Onyx rapper Sticky Fingaz has started making movies. Â And just not any movies – hip-hop musicals. Â It’s definitely an interesting idea, and it’s been by tried before to modest acclaim. Â But Sticky Fingaz’ movies, called A Day In The Life and Caught On Tape, appear less likely to garner much love from critics. Â Although they’ve got well known casts, including Mekhi Phifer, Michael Rapaport, Omar Epps, Vivica A. Fox and Cedric the Entertainer, their plots look unoriginal and their characters cliched. Â Now I ain’t hatin’, cause I know Sticky Fingaz is charting new territory with these projects, and I support any and all attempts to broaden hip-hop’s horizons. Â I just hope the films are more polished than their previews.
