A certain other female MC might be receiving all the teeny bopper attention lately but if you like your rap fast and furious then Rye Rye is your gal. Hailing from Baltimore, she’s signed to M.I.A.’s record label N.E.E.T. Recordings and will release an album entitled Go! Pop! Bang! — three words that pretty much sum up her stage energetic presence — sometime in 2011.
For her new song “Sunhsine” she slowed down the tempo (but not her machine gun flow) and recruited M.I.A. to sing the chorus. If you’re planning on attending one of M.I.A.’s three remaining west coast tour dates this month, be sure to arrive early enough to catch Rye Rye’s Fly Girl moves.
Rye Rye’s fall tour dates (with M.I.A.)
Oct 12 – Oakland @ Fox Theatre
Oct 14 – Los Angeles @ Mayan Theatre
Oct 17 – Seattle @ Showbox
