Listen To The History Of Black Moon In 3 Minutes (Audio)

When the trio of Buckshot, 5ft and Evil Dee, otherwise known as Black Moon, hit the Hip-Hop scene, they brought a sound that fused dark Jazz chords and boom bap drums with gritty Brooklyn flows. The group is the latest subject of Ed Lover’s “Behind The Hip-Hop” segment, which takes a look at the history of artists in 3 minutes.

The Black Moon episode chronicles the group’s journey from 1992 to the present. It details their meteoric rise as one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved groups with the release of their underground classic album “Enta Da Stage,” as well as the breakups, law suits and reunions that followed. The audio history also delves into Black Moon offshoots such as Da Beatminerz and Boot Camp Clik.

Even the group’s deepest fans will learn something from the succinct but informative clip, which kicks off by breaking down the acronym that has been attributed to the group over time, “Brothers who Lyrically Act and Combine Kicking Music Out On Nations.”
