Chances are the paper on the backside of the drywall is covered with mold.

Drywall is cheap and easy to replace. If you're planning on using the space for your man cave or to hang out in, I'd cut a hole in the bottom and check it out.

If you think the moisture is just in this corner of your basement, go outside and make sure your downspouts are connected to extension or PVC pipes that direct water away from your foundation. And make sure the grading near your foundation is directing water away properly.

This may solve the moisture problem in your basement. But you'll still have moldy walls.
