Black Moon and Killawatt Crew (Live) [Photos/Review]
Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver was lucky enough to experience Black Moon for the first time – well, at least Buckshot and Evil D – and it was a wild one. Check out the photo set and review below to get a feel for the packed show at Bar None.
Flipout started the nights off and the Killawatt Crew opened up, giving the crowd a run for its money with a high-energy set that infused some reggae vibes, gritty rants and the typical West Coast tree-smoking lyrics. Red1 dropped a jam off his upcoming solo album which features Method Man, giving us a taste of good things to come, and Tre Nyce stopped by for a number as well. Joose and HeatWave rotated with their team leader, each dropping verses in a variety of styles, each member backing each other with succinct rhymes and synchronized rhythms.
Black Moon was a whole other phase, Evil D coming on first to build the hype with Buckshot bursting onto the scene and rocking everybody’s world. Black Moon played a set that never lagged: their most iconic songs – “Who got da Props” and “Enta Da Stage” had the crowd in a frenzy and each transitional piece created a seamless flow of straight good music. A couple of songs off the Buckshot and 9th Wonder project The Formula brought us back into the less distant past and proved that Buckshot is still relevant and lacking for nothing.
