BLACK MOON
ENTA DA STAGE : THE COMPLETE EDITION
Label: FAT BEATS
Cat No: FB5170LP
Barcode: 659123517010
Packaging: 6LP Box Set

Composed of members Buckshot, 5ft, and DJ Evil Dee, Black Moon

simultaneously kicked off and defined the rap renaissance of New York

with the release of Enta Da Stage in 1993. Whereas plenty of earlier

groups had spit rage-filled rhymes to tear down the world's unjust

establishments, no one had evoked brooding pathos or introspective

anger quite like Black Moon. Underground hip-hop might have been

dominated by the sunny sound of G-Funk when Enta Da Stage

dropped, but from then on the scene turned to the dark side. Black

Moon was rising.

Working closely with the original members, Fat Beats Records is proud

to present the definitive Enta Da Stage box set. Reissued together for

the first time across three formats - 6xLP, 3xCD, and 3xCassette -

this album is the complete encapsulation of an era for anyone seeking

to understand the origin and the essence of New York's Golden

Age. All formats include the Da Beatminerz (Evil Dee and Mr. Walt)

instrumentals and remixes, plus extensive liner notes by David Ma

(Pitchfork, Wax Poetics) with rare and unreleased visual ephemera in

an 18 page booklet. The story of Black Moon, alongside their peers

Biggie, Big L, Nas, Kool G Rap, and Wu Tang, reminds us that the

bleakest times produce the most profound agents of cultural change.

And as we stand at the precipice of a new age of anxiety, Enta Da

Stage has never been more relevant... or more necessary.

Although Black Moon would go on to release three more albums - and

its members would go on to greatness with Da Beatminerz, Boot Camp

Klik, and various solo projects - Enta Da Stage remains the perfect

distillation of tight lyrical menace, rowdy crew hooks, stripped down

breaks, and deep basslines on all of its fourteen tracks. Although Enta

Da Stage might stand in the shadow of East Coast albums such as

Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Illmatic, Liquid Swords, Ready to

Die, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, and The Infamous, history will remember

that Enta Da Stage preceded those releases. To understand Enta Da

Stage is to understand the origin and the spirit of New York hip-hop

once and for all.
