Rye Rye’s debut album Go! Pop! Bang! was set to drop last year, but was delayed when the young Baltimore MC had her first child. The album is now due out in Jan. 2011, and the promotional cycle seems to be revving itself back up with the premiere of “Sunshine.” Rye Rye’s verses are delightfully brash, offering a nice contrast to the laid-back beat. Her mentor M.I.A. pops up again, taking care of hook duties as well as the wordless bridge section. Give it a listen over at Stereogum.
Once again, Go! Pop! Bang! is expected to drop in Jan. 2011 via M.I.A.’s N.E.E.T. label.
