Black Moon Rising

Back in the mid-Nineties, Brooklyn's Black Moon -- Evil Dee, Buckshot, and 5Fter -- spat out brutal, amoral gangsta chronicles while its crew the Beatminerz ran samples through bass filters, achieving a relentless, dub-like, and callused feel. Just as the world seemed to be catching up, Black Moon disbanded in a haze of creative and legal hostilities. With only three albums in more than ten years (most recently, 2003's Total Eclipse), this posse clearly believes in quality not quantity, and knows its hardcore style doesn't need fifteen high-profile guest stars to get it across.
