Okay, I love that Cuddle Bums song so much I decided to do my research on Tanya Morgan. Now, I've been known to exhibit blond traits (no offence if you happen to be a blond), so forgive me if I'm the only one who thought Tanya Morgan was the lady who provided us with the hook.
Anyway, this is what I discovered... Tanya Morgan is a Rap Group
LOL...yes, Tanya Morgan is a rap group and if you dont believe it, click on the link above and download the mixtape aptly titled...err... Tanya Morgan is a Rap Group! Thanks for the clarification!!! : D
Kinda reminds me of that scene in the movie Clueless where the guy asks Cher if she listens to Billie Holiday, to which she replies with great enthusiasm, 'Billie Holiday? I LOVE HIM!!!' *LOL*
They've got that Little Brother (Big Pooh & Phonte) vibe going on, which I love!!!
Tanya Morgan consists of Von Pea, Ilyas and Donwill. They've also got an EP out at the moment called The Bridge. Their debut album, Moonlighting (2006) was amongst Questlove(The Roots)'s Top Albums of 2006 (number 6). I'm guessing they realised that quite a few people would confuse them for the newest soul singer on the block and the album cover is a play on that.
So, for those who didn't know, Tanya Morgan is a Rap Group! : D

As I was listening to Adam's Case Files - 88 Keys, this one song came up. Lets just say it is officially MY song; in more ways than one : ) / : (

I came across these Giuseppe Zanotti shoes first, a while ago (I already told you I have a penchant for looking at things I can scarcely afford... : D). Anyway, I was reminded of them again while I was watching Samantha (Sex and The City) get wasabi in places wasabi shouldn't be (her words not mine!)...LOL...and the good news is this...they are now at a reduced (discounted is such a harsh word) price of £358 over at http://www.matchesfashion.com/

Nas 'Be a Nigger Too'
I believe that the word is only as powerful as you allow it to be
Nas - Be A Nigger Too (New)
Nas has also put out a mixtape with DJ Green Lantern called The Nigger Tape and if this is any indication of what his album is going to be like I suggest people run out and cop it when it drops cos this mixtape is FIRE!
Look for Association feat. Stic Man, Black President, Legendary, N.I.G.G.E.R (Slave and Master) and Be a Nigger Too (remix) feat. Dante Hawkins.
Moving from one controversial MC to another, was listening to Tha Carter III and noticed that he sampled one of my favourite songs by the great Nina Simone, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood on the Don'tGetIt track...both the original and the sample are HOT!
Here's Nina Simone's Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

I ADORE Destiny's Child and although they have supposedly retired, we all know its only a matter of time before we hear some new music from the ladies; as there have already been rumours of the groups reunion with an extra member... Solange (who by the way; may i say, is on top of her game right now). Anyway, this tune still has that similar independent woman vibe (well it is called "Gots my own") and it pretty much a typical DC3 song. Listen
