Critical Praise for Tanya Morgan:

"Tanya Morgan's sophomore album, Brooklynati, is their most accomplished to date, a milestone moment for their already contagiously soulful sound." - XXL - Chariman's Choice

4 Stars - Time Out NY

"Tanya Morgan means ill f*cking new millennium underground hip hop....I’m glad I got woken the f*ck up. A group hasn’t instantly impressed me this much, maybe ever." -

“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

The Song:

The big move day has finally come. Tanya Morgan has left the building and are now happily ensconced in the city of their dreams, Brooklynati. Mayor Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson welcomed Donwill, Ilyas, and Von Pea at a special ribbon-cutting ceremony at Yancey Park. Brooklynati's DJ Laureate King Most commissioned a special public works project for the event. The results can be heard here:

In closing, Mayor ?uestlove issued the following statement:

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.
