From Michelle at Audible Treats:
Critical Praise for Tanya Morgan:
"This Brooklyn-Cincinnati hip-hop trio summoned old-school cheer, goofy skits and indelible hooks for a left-field masterpiece." - Rated #1 Album across all genres for 2009 by Steve Smith, Time Out New York's Music Editor
Brooklynati featured in dozens of Best Of 2009 lists including AllMusic.com, The Village Voice, eMusic.com, Amazon.com, Onion AV Club, Time Out New York, PopMatters.com, LAMusicBlog.com, TheSmokingSection, CokeMachineGlow.com, TheUrbanDaily.com, and more.
Back with another cut from his highly anticipated upcoming debut album Don Cusack In High Fidelity, Donwill, one third of critically acclaimed Tanya Morgan, is proud to release the latest single, "Pu**y Rules The World." Don't let the name of the track fool you though. "The song is about being more critical of chasing skirts," says Donwill. "It's not a song degrading women, but more so questioning motives." The song also features west coast emcees Mykestro and Bad Lucc who spit well-crafted verses about their own experiences and motives when dealing with the fairer sex. A drum infused beat and grooving bass line collide yet leave enough space on the sonic landscape for the emcees to tell their lyrical tales. Echoing the overall theme of the song, Donwill reminds listeners that life has much more to offer than what many people get caught up with. "If your world is ruled by cash, clothes, cars or girls, you should improve your life. 'Cus there is A LOT more out there." Be sure to take note, as a little insight from Donwill goes a long way.
