Behind the Scenes with Tanya Morgan: "So Damn Down"

By Lorenzo Escalantefeatures
May 9, 2009 - 12:45 AM

Despite what you might think when you hear the name, Tanya Morgan is a rap group. And a damn good one at that. Gaining acclaim for the true school aesthetics displayed on their 2006 debut Moonlighting, and further propelled by 2008's The Bridge EP, the trio of emcees Donwill, Ilyas and emcee/producer Von Pea are ready to put forth their most polished body of work to date: Brooklynati (out May 12 on Interdependent Media).

"If you've heard anything we've put out before, [Brooklynati] is just a step up," Von Pea says.

The group, whose members are spread between Brooklyn and Cincinnati (hence the album title), journeyed out west to Oakland to shoot the video for their first single, "So Damn Down." [Download "So Damn Down" and more below.] We caught up with Tanya Morgan, director Roy Miles, Jr., the Interdependent Media team and their Bay fam at KTOP studios to give you sneak peak of the music video and to find out more about Brooklynati.

Clearance sale is another good place. Shoes at clearance sales maybe slightly outdated but nobody cares when you wear them out on the streets. People will hardly notice if the shoes men wear are in vogue or not though this is not the case with women. Even if men wear the same shoe that they wore to office for a party as well nobody will notice unlike women.

Although you'll be able to't steer clear of the demand for keeping accounts, you can offload the obligation for these accounts to a external supplier [url=http://www.total7otfake2.com]super real[/url] if you're feeling you may not pay back from the agreed period of time then you'll be able to extend the contract further, if your lender agrees.

Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

As participant preferences change and new expertise is developed, somebody while using precise programming abilities should be there to fill the gap between what players need, and what are the gaming trade can supply. All sorts of common games plus they are of numerous genres. But triple buffering also melts away memory for the graphics card, possibly lowering performance, though nowhere nearby the 50% hit VSync could cause without it.

The truth is, at times, men do not have enough testosterone. The majority of the children supported with Edwards ' syndrome seem weak and fragile, and they are often of insufficient weight. Rather they are just simple tasks that would not need super human intelligence or talent. Feel free to visit my blog post: [url=http://webdesignpeoriaillinois.page.tl/]web design peoria[/url]
