Sticky Fingaz To Promote Gun Safety In New PSA

Sticky Fingaz has issued a statement to clarify the details of a gun mishap that left friend and fellow rapper Luce Cannon with a shattered shin bone.

 

Last week, Sticky Fingaz confirmed he was displaying his baby Desert Eagle weapon to Luce when the gun accidentally discharged.

 

The shot lodged into Luce’s leg, and resulted in the rapper undergoing emergency surgery.

 

Although the bullet is still lodged in Luce’s leg, Sticky Fingaz revealed that he is still on good terms with Luce, who at press time is seeking a second medical opinion on his recovery.

 

“This incident was unfortunate, but could have been much worse,” Sticky stated to AllHipHop.com. “I’m just happy Luce is recovering and in good condition.”

 

The Queens emcee elaborated that he’ll use publicity from the incident to work with a non-profit gun safety organization, and film a PSA cautioning others on the importance of firearm safety.

 

In addition, Sticky is making his directorial and writing debut with A Day In the Life.

 

The film, which ironically has the tagline “One Bullet Leads to Another,” is the first film presented entirely in rap form, and stars Omar Epps, Mekhi Phifer, Fredro Starr, Ray J, Michael Rapaport, Bokeem Woodbine, Faizon Love, and Malinda Williams.

 

The motion picture soundtrack is set to be released August 18 through Tommy Boy, and features four new tracks from Sticky Fingaz and Onyx.

 

Starting July 9, fans can catch Onyx on their latest US and Canada tour, entitled “The Black Rock.”
