Critical Praise for Tanya Morgan:

“Brooklynati” is Tanya Morgan’s latest project, and it basically cannot disappoint. In fact, it’s genetically engineered to be better than you. For good measure: Von makes brownies better than your mom, Ilyas reads more books than Reading Rainbow, and Don is meaner than the guy that stole your lunch money yesterday. And they all still rap better than your cousin’s best friend’s ex-boyfriend’s brother. Yep better than all that."- MSNBC

"Tanya Morgan make... messages that resonate with the everyday listener and accessible beats that captivate the spirit of Hip-Hop’s most devout followers, not to mention their reputation for dominating live stage shows." - 215Mag

"With all due respect to Talib and Hi-Tek, I'm actually more inclined to revisit team Tanya's likeably loose, bordering-on-sloppy inaugural effort than said ballyhooed backpack-crowd classic." - XXL - Chariman's Choice

The Background:

Tanya Morgan is back with their third project, Brooklynati, following the success of Moonlighting and The Bridge. Since Von Pea, Ilyas, and Don Will formed Tanya Morgan in 2003, they have received high praise from media elites such as Spin, The Source, XXL Magazine and a resounding seal of approval from the blogosphere. Considered by many to be our generation's torchbearers for De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, Tanya Morgan will once again put their skills on display with the unique hip-hop Americana sounds of their Brooklynati album this spring. Based on the fictitious city of Brooklynati, this release pushes the boundaries of a concept album by incorporating not only lyrical imagery but also cultivating a culture and mindset, which can be experienced through the City of Brooklynati Chamber of Commerce website: The sites, sounds, memories, and events of Brooklynati will be unleashed on May 12th through Bay-Area based record label Interdependent Media, the architects behind the funding and development of Brooklynati.
