Records: Black Moon - Enta Da Stage 12"s

Brothers who Lyrically Act and Combine Kickin Music Out On Nations.

Black Moon is one of those groups that helped make early/mid 90's Hip-Hop one of the illest eras in music. Their debut album Enta Da Stage is a certified classic and every single off the album are easily classics in their own right. No joke, every song on every side is a banger. Buckshot, 5Ft, and DJ Evil Dee crafted a sound that was heavy on samples, boom bap drums, and hardcore lyrics. There's nothing pretty here - no club jams, no radio friendly joints, no shiny suits, and no cute dances. Black Moon during this era is what Hip-Hop should be, what Hip-Hop is, and what Hip-Hop probably never will be again.
