Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States (1992 – present)

There are four bands by the name of Black Moon:

1) Black Moon (Brothers who Lyrically Act and Combine Kickin Music Out On Nations) is a Hip Hop group from Brooklyn, New York which debuted in 1992, with the release of the single “Who Got Da Props?”. The song became something of an underground phenomenon, and charted on the Billboard Hot 100. With the help of DJ Chuck Chillout, the group landed a record deal with Nervous Records for the release of their debut album Enta Da Stage, released in late 1993. The album included “Who Got Da Props?”, as well as the singles “How Many MC’s…”, “Buck Em Down”, and another Hot 100 hit, “I Got Cha Opin (Remix)”. The album went on to sell over 350,000 copies in the U.S., and is now regarded as an underground hip hop classic. Following the album’s release, the group temporarily broke up.

During the group’s hiatus, DJ Evil Dee continued his production career with his crew Da Beatminerz, and lead MC Buckshot headed out and formed his own supergroup called the Boot Camp Clik, featuring fellow Brooklyn locals Smif-N-Wessun, Heltah Skeltah and O.G.C… Following the releases of the debuts from Smif-N-Wessun (Dah Shinin’), Heltah Skeltah (Nocturnal), and O.G.C. (Da Storm), Black Moon reformed on Buckshot’s label Duck Down Records. In late 1996, Nervous Records released a Black Moon compilation album titled Diggin’ in Dah Vaults, which featured a number of remixes and B-Side tracks. After the group’s split with Nervous Records, Black Moon became entangled in a legal battle over the licensing rights of their group name, which lasted for a number of years.
