With over three million albums sold, New York City-based rap group Onyx, discovered by the late legendary Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC and most famous for their hits “Slam” and “Throw Ya Gunz”, formed three of Golden-Era rap’s most indelible faces. One of those faces was founding member Sonny Seeza, an emcee known to hold his own on tracks with DMX, 50 Cent, Big Pun, Lost Boyz, Wu-Tang Clan, Noreaga and more.
Sonny is now set to finally release his definitive solo album Bridges Volume 1 on Empire Music. Recorded in PW Studios in Basel, Switzerland, Bridges contains 13 new and exclusive tracks, mixed by Thomas “Jakebeatz” Hof and Sonny. The beats were contributed by DJ Tray (Delinquent Habits / Underclassmen), DJ Def Cut and other Swiss producers. Album, single and video publicity is being handled by NYC/L.A.-based Dunn Deal PR, whose client list includes RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Chuck D of Public Enemy, Bootsy Collins of Parliament/Funkadelic, Murs and many more.
Bridges is set for release in the first quarter of 2013, with the first single doc help dropping in 2012. The music video for "Doc Help" was realized by Thomas "Jakebeatz" Hof (his best known being the clip for Swiss pop icon Baschi’s “Kennsch Mi No Oder Liebsch Mi Scho” single, released by Universal Music Switzerland in 2011) and Manuel Wiedemann, the award winning director behind the short film "A Disruptive Element".
