Baltimore rapper Rye Rye grabs her mentor M.I.A. and heads down to the playground for a bit of rhyming, dancing and double dutch in the video for the infectious “Sunshine.” Man, where was this sunny clip—an infinitely more entertaining affair than M.I.A.’s “The Message”—in, like, June or July?
Nineteen-year-old Rye Rye is signed to M.I.A.’s label, N.E.E.T. Recordings, and her debut LP, amusingly titled Go! Pop! Bang!, is due out early in 2011. (Color us far more excited for this than we were for MAYA.)
We’re totally digging her spunk. Hmmm. Should Nicki Minaj be worried?
