"MOAN - Belife"

Hailing from Sheffield and combining soulful vibes with crippling words of truth about today's society, MOAN (Message of a Nation) release their single and music video for their debut track Belief.

The group is a close-knit crew of three friends consisting of emcees; Lucid Behaviour and Sean Dee, with producer Ben Woodward on the buttons. They inject a sense of reality into their tracks through both positive and negative sources stemming from situations that they have all been through in life, which is lyrically and visually displayed in their debut video.

With their debut E.P Finding Home dropping later this year, they are definitely a group to watch in 2019! - Wordplay Magazine


Tipped to be one-to-watch out for this year, the UK hip-hop collective MOAN (Message of a Nation) have become known for their gripping tracks of soulful vibes and crippling words of truth about today's society.

The trio of Lucid Behaviour, Sean Dee and beat-maker Ben Woodward ‘take inspiration from situations they have been through in their lives injecting reality and heartfelt sounds into their tracks.’

The three Yorkshire lads first collaborated early last year during a time of financial and social instability and have since made many public appearances including Mayth Festival, Peace in the Park After Party, as well as charitable performances to raise money for mental health charity MIND and homeless prevention charity Charity Depaul UK.

The debut single titled "Belief" sends a positive message of taking on the challenges life will throw at you whilst holding your head up high and strive for peace in mind.

Taken from their upcoming album, ‘Finding Home’ which is expected for release in March, "Belief" is the second song released by the MOAN and the second that the group have written together.

The group will showcase ‘Belief’ live at a special performance at Peddler Market on March 2.

Keep an eye on the group’s Facebook page for any updates on the new album and future performances. - VIBE

"MOAN is all about "Belief""

MOAN is a UK hip-hop collective known for their profound, heartfelt music. The moniker stands for Message of A Nation and it's made up of three individuals who joined forces during a time of financial and social instability. The trio consists of two emcees – Lucid Behaviour and Sean Dee – and beat-maker Ben Woodward.

The debut single titled "Belief" is an uplifting track that solely focuses on the positive side of things. Far from trying to sugar coat or ignore the everyday struggle they go through, the emcees instead face the reality and opt to just keep their head up high and strive for peace of mind. The visual concept is minimal but stresses the theme of the song with its forever moving motif. The use of the treadmill for the emcees drives the forward-thinking movement mindstate of the song and also adds a fun-filled vibe to it.

"Belief" is the second song ever created by the trio, and it's taken from their upcoming album slated for release early this year. -

MOAN “Belief”

Sheffield UK based hip-hop trio MOAN (Message of a Nation) recently dropped a visual for their debut single “Belief”. The group states, “As we all experience struggle within our lives, we strive for peace of mind. The single expresses forward-thinking movement.” -


MOAN (Message Of A Nation) is a three-man hip-hop group from Sheffield, UK. The group made up of 2 emcees Lucid behaviour & Sean Dee and beat maker Ben Woodward kick-start the new year with the video for their debut single “Belief”. The single is an uplifting gem that details the everyday struggles we all go through as we look for individual peace of mind. Sean Dee delivers a picker upper type verse while Lucid gets you thinking on your feet with his profound lyrics. Ben Woodward, on the other hand, gives life to the emcees with his mellow, reflective instrumentation.

The group has also spent time over summer running songwriting and hip-hop workshops from Hybrid 3 Studio’s in Sheffield for the young homeless people of DEPAUL UK homeless prevention Charity. This has influenced the music and stories coming on the Deut E.P. MOAN are pretty keen to use the power of music to help build awareness of sensitive subjects such as homeless and mental health issues in society and young adulthood. - Word Is Bond Hiphop

"January is finally over"

anuary witnessed Legendary Warlords of Afrobeat K.O.G & the Zongo Brigade sneak out sizzling teaser single For My People from their much awaited upcoming debut album Wahala-Wahala (check it out here!). The Steel City’s very own conscious hiphop collective MOAN dropped Belief, a check-your-head sonic guarantee of big things to come from these tight and wild emcees in 2019. Big up! We also heard rumours on the grapevine of an elusive link-up between electro-babe DIMITRI and leather-clad jive king Joey Mojito under the moniker Kinky Sex Club. KSC’s debut single Be In Love is the sound of airborne erotikons transported from 1984 and hybridised with the DNA of Pet Shop Boys at their most sensual, and is available from beneath the counter of all reputable adult outlets with a Sheffield postcode.
