RYE RYE IN ELLE!



EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT…. RYE RYE

On her firs album, Go! Pop! Bang!, 20-year-old Baltimore rapper Rye Rye barks out breakneck, tongue-twisting rhymes that pair perfectly with her frenetic knee-shaking, windup-toy dance steps—moves that make you wonder where she would hide a caffeine drip under those neon unitards. Growing up in the projects, she mimicked moves from Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, and Destiny’s Child music videos, and in high-school (where she joined a step team and the cheerleading squad), she caught the ear of local DJ-producer Blaqstarr by rapping on his answering machine. He quickly introduced her to M.I.A., who signed Rye Rye to her N.E.E.T. imprint, took her on tour, and appeared on the single “Sunshine,” and electro-pop school-yard anthem that’s irresistible (nearly one million YouTube views) to the inde and urban crowds alike. And although Diplo helped produce the record, don’t expect a debut filled with hyped guest spots. “You know how most people are dying to work with mainstream producers and artists?” Rye Rye says, “I really want to collaborate with people who can dance.” –Julie Vadnal

RYE RYE PERFORMING SELECT DECEMBER TOUR DATES!

After wow-ing crowds at Art Basel in Miami last weekend, dance-rap dynamo Rye Rye hits the road on a select seven date tour kicking off on Decemeber 8th in LA, wrapping up in her hometown of Baltimore on December 18th. Rye Rye is gearing up to release her eagerly awaited debut album Go! Pop! Bang!, on February 22nd.

The 19-year-old with the rapid-fire flow gives fans a taste of what’s to come with her new single “Sunshine Ft. M.I.A”

Rolling Stone raves, “Sunshine is a sweet, percolating electro-pop cut that sounds like Judy Jetson’s fave double-dutch jam.”

The New York Times calls Rye Rye’s music “eminently danceable, with up-tempo break beats, electronic flourishes, and double-Dutch-like rhymes” while URB declares “the future is here, and her name is Rye Rye.”

Go! Pop! Bang! features production by Blaqstarr, M.I.A, Count and Sinden, and Diplo amoung others.
