Black Moon was rising. Although Black Moon would go on to release three more albums - and it's 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 it's fourteen tracks. Although Enta Da Stage might stand in the shadow of East Coast albums such as Enter the Wu- Tang (36 Chambers),.

Black Moon were comprised of DJ Evil Dee, Buckshot and 5Ft. The album’s content is fairly bare-boned, so expect nothing less than braggadocios rap and vivid violence throughout. That being said, Black Moon know how to stick to the plot well, and while lyrically they might not be up there with the best, the production is some of the darkest to date. Definitely an essential underground album worth listening to as you could see their influence permeate through to latter artists who employ a dark theme both lyrically and production-wise in their albums.
Perhaps no other album of the '90s musically exhibits the shift in the hip-hop ethos that occurred in 1993 better than Black Moon's classic gemstone Enta da Stage. Listen to this album and you can hear hip-hop change. Prior to this, many of hip-hop's most confrontational vibes were presented as gifts from bellicose outfits like Public Enemy, Ice Cube, and other acts whose music raged. Enta da Stage features enough of that, but it also offered, perhaps even introduced, a brooding vibe. It was a pioneer sound
Each variant features the original album, Da Beatminerz instrumentals and remixes across six LPs, three CDs and three cassettes, respectively, along with an 18-page booklet with new interviews, extensive liner notes, and unreleased photos from the original Enta Da Stage photo shoot and additional visual ephemera. The vinyl and cassette releases are limited to 1,000 and 500 copies, respectively. 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. Working closely with the original members, Fat Beats Records is proud to present the definitive Enta Da Stage box set. Reissued 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.
