Diggin' in dah Vaults is a compilation album by Black Moon. The album features seven remixes of tracks originally released on their debut Enta da Stage, and a few songs originally released as B-Sides on past singles.

The album was not authorized by the group, Nervous Records (US) bootlegged it after Black Moon refused to submit a new album and went to court with the record label.
