Enta Da Stage is the debut album from East Coast hip hop group Black
Moon, released October 19, 1993 on Nervous Records. The album was
produced entirely by DJ Evil Dee and Mr. Walt of Da Beatminerz. Enta
Da Stage features the debut of popular underground duo Smif-N-Wessun,
as well as appearances from Havoc of Mobb Deep and Dru-Ha, the
co-founder of Duck Down Records. Though critically acclaimed, the
album sold poorly, despite having two Billboard Hot 100 hits ("Who Got
Da Props?", "I Got Cha Opin"). Furthermore, the album is often
overlooked in the midst of subsequent East Coast albums, such as Enter
the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Illmatic, Ready to Die, Only Built 4 Cuban
Linx, and The Infamous. Nonetheless, Enta Da Stage preceded the
aforementioned releases —serving as a precursor to the resurgence of
the New York hip hop scene in the mid-1990s.
