Go! Pop! Bang! Here comes the 20-year-old rapper from Baltimore who is about to take over the world with her unique and hard-hitting club-rap beats and energetic dance-moves, watch out!

Ryeisha Berrain, aka Rye Rye, got discovered by M.I.A. and was the first artist to get signed to her label N.E.E.T. This girl has already opened for The Gossip, performed at an Alexander Wang party and toured with M.I.A, and now she releases her debut album: Go! Pop! Bang! We expect it to be nothing but a great success. Styled by her mentor at large and fashion icon M.I.A, Rye Rye builds her rebellious style around her music.
