Tanya Morgan – YGWY$4 [Album Stream]

Von Pea and Donwill are back with a new Tanya Morgan album titled “YGWY$4”, which stands for “You Get What You Pay For”. Von Pea and Donwill are clearly masters in this arena, with the latter taking some well-placed shots at critics who try to put the duo in a box. “They say that we ‘A Tribe Called De La’ or ‘Smaller Little Brother’/ All I know is that we do it better than the others.” Don’s point is that while he and Von have made some ill-as-hell Boom bap joints to date—arguably “Trunk Shit” is among them—people need to stop trying to classify them as this or that. Anyone who’s heard all of their projects will say the same, and “YGWY$4” further demonstrate Tanya Morgan’s versatility. Want proof?—just head over to the digital retailer of your choice and support this duo that’s been keeping your iPod and tape deck satisfied since ’05. Take a listen below and cop a copy via iTunes. Watch the music video for “Trunk Shit” after the break.
