War Zone (album)

War Zone is the second album from Hip Hop group Black Moon, which was
War Zone
released almost six years after its influential debut Enta Da Stage. The group began
a lengthy legal battle withNervous Records in 1995 over the licensing of their name,
which finally settled soon before the release of War Zone. Though many of the
albums released from the Boot Camp Clik family between 1997 and 1999 received
mediocre reviews, War Zone garnered some strong acclaim and moderate sales. The
album features the singles"Two Turntables & a Mic", "War Zone" and "This Is What
It Sounds Like [Worldwind]".

MC 5ft, who only appeared on three tracks on its debut Enta Da Stage, makes the
most appearances of his career here, dropping verses on six songs.
