Three years ago, with the endorsement of DJ Blaqstarr and M.I.A., teenage rapper Rye Rye was poised to take the hip-hop world by storm. She toured with M.I.A. and was even featured on two of her remixes. Then she got pregnant and was forced to hang up the mic. Now after having her daughter, Kennidi, last September, Rye Rye is back on the horse. She’s playing three SXSW shows, along with an in-store in Austin. Check out her full tour schedule on MySpace and her 2009 album Bang.
