Big Brother Beat: New Segment from CSV

Here at CSV, we are dedicated to offering readers a wide array of indie music.

Personally, I am not a big rap fan, but once in a while, my brother directs me to some good hip-hop. And so, my brother and I have conceived the idea to have a "Big Brother Beat" (BBB) segment where we explore some up and coming rap groups that are sure to make your ears tingle.

Big Brother beat, of course, refers to track 13 on De La Soul's 1996 release, Stakes is High:
Check the lyrics here.

On that note...

Hey everybody, this is AD with a BBB update. Right now, there's something brewing in Cincinnati and it isn't just the Reds leading the wildcard race. 2 Cinci MCs, Ilyas and Donwill, along with Brooklyn native Von Pea have teamed up to create rap group Tanya Morgan. Much like De La Soul of the early 90's, TM uses eclectic beats and socially-conscious lyrics to bring back and old school flavor to hip hop. Their sophomore album, Moonlighting, presents TM on the map as legitimate hip-hop force. Their earlier work of the mixtape variety can be found for FREE here. Definitely pick this up, along with their EP, Sunset. I know personally that many think that rap is on a downward swing--and I'd agree--but all hip hop heads will love these funky beats and lyrical proficiency.

The track "Paper thin" features frequent collaborator Jermiside and samples of a classic MC Lyte track. Enjoy.

Listen to Paper Thin.
