All Day: Tawn P and Preemo
Hip-hop, like any genre, changes and evolves, but one thing you could always count on (at least until the early part of the last decade) was the notion of the hip-hop group. When you look at MTV's rankings of the greatest hip-hop groups of all time, you'd have a hard time finding any group -- hell, one group -- today that could even stand amongst the list's honorable mentions with a straight face.

Perhaps we are in the era of individuality. And that's okay. Maybe this era of hip-hop artists didn't grow up learning how to share their toys in the sandbox, but if there's a valuable lesson we could all be reminded of by looking at MTV's list, it's that some of hip-hop's greatest works were put out by...groups.

There was something incredibly enticing about the contrast of lyrical delivery and sound of say, UGK -- Bun B's deep vocals next to Pimp C's high-pitched country twang. And there was something very comforting about knowing that you could count on that consistency of those two teaming up on every record.

So it was refreshing to hear that two of Houston's most talented underground artists, Preemo and Tawn P, were teaming up to form a hip-hop group called All Day. They have both had their share of success in the scene.

Preemo's Concrete Dreams and The Magic Bullet were No. 2 and No. 10 on Rocks Off's lists of Houston's best rap albums in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

Tawn P's The Wake Up Kiss made it to No. 7 on the 2011 rankings. She also was No. 6 on About.com's 10 Houston Rappers to Watch in 2012.

Rocks Off's Shea Serrano once described her as "jagged and aggressive and smoldering," which is true. Match that up with Preemo's silky-smooth, high-as-a-kite lyrical delivery and you have some pretty incredible chemistry.

Rocks Off got a sneak-peak listen to "I Just Wanna Piece" off All Day's upcoming album, which is about 30 percent done. If that's any indication of what's to come, then the Houston rap scene is going to have a lot to talk about with the pairing of these two artists.

History has proven to repeat itself. Let's hope All Day.

Old soul cool... I buy anything she's selling. Def looking forward to seeing her put her thang into a new project. I'm not as familiar with Preemo, but I'm a fan now!

Tawn P is a beeeeeeast! And Preemo has awesome flow! This is a great connection, we need more like 'em! I was unaware of Tawn P's electric stage presence until I had the privelege of seeing her at FlyFest 2012. VERY UNFORGETTABLE performance! Preemo backed her & it was just magic on stage with those two! You now have my ears tuned into your sounds!--J MAK "Tha Monster"

I have the pleasure of knowing Preemo in a way that most will never experience...knowing him so well allows me to see where he gets his passion for his music and lyrical word play...and just when I thought he couldn't get any better along came Tawn P. I've never seen him so excited to collaborate with an individual, much less a female! The two together are strong representation of modern, and old school Hip Hop! #TawnPree #AllDay

Tawn killed it on stage with Preemo at Flyfest2 this past weekend. Her dedication and drive to succeed is astounding so I trust she wouldn’t pair up with someone unless it was going to be epic! I’m a big fan of Tawn’s latest EP and I’ll be checking out Preemo’s work soon. I am excited to see what Allday will bring to our world.

This article belongs to Tawn P. She is a revolutionary with a pioneer's character. The way the article focused on the absence of the hip-hop group was precise. Eric B/Rakim, EPMD, DTMD, Pete Rock/C.L.Smooth, Run DMC, etc.... Its good to know that hiphop is still alive and well when you see goddess MCs like Tawn P.still progressing

This will be an incredible duo. Music lately has been so dull and boring and it's great that two of Houston's up and coming artist are collabing together. I'm a huge Tawn p fan. Her music is very honest, you can feel her passion though her lyrics. I can't wait I know their music will exactly what the doctor ordered!
