Oct. 19, 2013 will mark the 20th anniversary of the release of Black Moon's debut, Enta Da Stage, a defining album of the Golden Era of Hip-Hop which took jazz samples and were flipped into dark, deep-in-the-basement instrumentals provided by the legendary Beatminerz, accompanied by Buckshot Shorty & 5FT's effortless rhymes. In the above teaser clip, Dru Ha and Buckshot reminisce on the environment they grew up in as well as the in-depth studio sessions they had to create the album. The full clip / doc drops later this year. Those of you attending SXSW, make sure to catch them TODAY at the anniversary show at Haven (409 Colorado St.) with appearances by Talib Kweli, Roc Marciano, Statik Selektah and more!

    man, they need to release a remastered 20th anniversary edition of this lp. this is one of my fav. albums ever but shit needs to be mixed a little better and a little louder along with dah shinin'.

    man listen, i used to come from that same train of thought that it "makes the album grimy and is part of why the shit is dope" but i'm past that. I just want the whole album to be listenable rather than have to turn the volume way up when i switch from another album to that one. there's nothing worse than having an album with horrible volume and sound especially in 2013. i'm done with low quality shit, there's no excuse given our modern technology to have a CD sound as bad as a cassette. remaster that shit dru ha, sell it and make some extra dough. i'll cop.

    Absolutely legendary! One of the best hip-hop albums to ever be released.

    I agree with that sound quality issue! I hope they remastered that joint seriously!
