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.
