Onyx member and actor Sticky Fingaz reached out to HipHopDX Monday to clarify reports by website TMZ.com, on a gun-related accident.
Reports from Sticky’s Major Independents production company confirmed a “firearm mishap” while shooting the rapper’s directorial debut, A Day In The Life, bearing the tagline “one bullet leads to another.” Spokesman for the company told HipHopDX, “Last week when Sticky was showing off his baby Desert Eagle to a friend named Luce, the gun accidentally went off and shot Luce in the leg. The bullet shattered a bone in Luce’s shin and he had to have surgery. He’s doing fine now, but the bullet is still lodged in his leg and he’s going back this week for a second opinion. No charges were filed and the two are still friends.”
Sticky Fingaz added to HipHopDX, “This incident was unfortunate , but could have been much worse. I’m just happy Luce is recovering and in good condition.”
Aside from directing A Day In The Life, Sticky also wrote and stars in the film which will be released July 7th by Major Independents and Lionsgate Films. It’s the first movie to be told entirely in rap and stars Omar Epps, Mekhi Phifer, Fredro Starr, Ray J, Michael Rapaport, Bokeem Woodbine, Faizon Love, Malinda Williams and host of others.
The soundtrack is out August 18th from Tommy Boy Records featuring music from the film and four all new songs from Sticky and Onyx. Look out for Onyx’s The Black Rock Tour of the US and Canada starting July 9th.
