In the beginning, there was Tanya Morgan. And Tanya Morgan was good. Comprised of gifted Cincinnati rappers
Ilyas Nashid and Donald “Donwill” Freeman, along with equally talented
Brooklyn, N.Y., MC/producer Devon “Von Pea” Callender, Tanya Morgan was
hailed as one of Hip Hop’s brightest young groups.
It's been an eventful seven years since
Cincinnati MCs Donwill and Ilyas forged an alliance with Brooklyn MC Von Pea to form the renowned Hop Hop group Tanya Morgan. The unit came together in 2003 when Donwill and Von Pea, who had collaborated after meeting on okayplayer.com, decided to record a full-length album together.
