Black Moon has re-entered the stage. Buckshot, 5 FT and DJ Evil Dee have released Rise Of Da Moon, the group’s first album since 2003’s Total Eclipse.
“We’re carrying a lot of the weight of Hip Hop on our back because people are riding on this,” Buckshot tells HipHopDX. “They’re riding on this album. They’re hoping this album can give them some type of relief to what they don’t have right now as an option. There’s nothing wrong with the music that’s out and the things that’s happening, but that doesn’t exclude the fact there’s no option. So people are depending on Black Moon to be an option and to be a good option.”
The trio’s fourth studio LP is produced entirely by Da Beatminerz. Guests on the 15-track project include Method Man, Smif-N-Wessun and Heltah Skeltah’s Rock a.k.a Rockness Monsta.
