It’s about time the Baltimore-bred MC and dance party guru Rye Rye (Ryeisha Berrain) got some attention. This 18-year old girlie was the first artist signed to M.I.A.’s N.E.E.T Records, and as far as I see it, bringing back the fun of dance routines and booty-shaking. Her heavy bass, catchy lyrics, and conceptual style is reminiscent of the earlier, more enjoyable days of Hip-Hop. No wonder she’s partnered up with the none other than the creative “Bamboo Banga” herself- MISS Rye Rye has an image that compliments the past, present, and future of refreshing young talent, especially in the context of upcoming young female artists.
Diplo, Afrikan Boy, and Baltimore rapper Blaqstarr are just a few of the artists who have collaborated on Rye Rye’s music. If you need to get a download now “Shake It To The Ground” ft Blaqstarr is available on iTunes and at the end of this summer you can catch her live August 7 at Lollapalooza 2009!!
