Tanya Morgan Moonlighting
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Loud Minority Music
On Moonlighting, Brooklyn/Cincinnati hip-hop crew Tanya Morgan (an all-male trio) sets out to convince listeners not to judge a book-er, CD-by its cover. Is the music behind all the masquerading worth checking out, though? For the most part, yes. These guys are as quick to clown as A Tribe Called Quest circa People's Instinctive Travels, and their lighthearted vibe makes for some entertaining listening. Of course, their soulful and hard-hitting production doesn't hurt either. While their rhymes can be heavy on complaints, they make sure to keep them comical; the proof is in the hilarious anti-thug rap anthem "Rough It Up."
