Tanya Morgan's three members -- Cincinnati-bred Donwill and Ilyas, and Brooklyn's Von Pea -- met through an online message board, and composed much of their 2006 debut, Moonlighting, by sending files to each other over the Internet.Their sophomore effort, Brooklynati, hit record stores this week -- and you can get a free taste right here!

"Tanya Morgan are like the sons of De La Soul -- soulful, stressed, effortlessly smart flows, intricate production, the whole package," SPIN Music Editor Charles Aaron says of the up-and-coming rappers -- high praise, indeed.
