**Our Interview With Rye Rye!**

MADS EXCLUSIVE!

Mads got in touch with Rye Rye, the up-and-coming rapper who is opening for M.I.A. on April 11th. She was nice enough to answer a few questions for us...

Mads: When did you start rapping?
Rye Rye: When I was 15 getting ready to turn 16 (the summer of '06).

M: What's it like to compete in the industry at a young age?
RR: To be honest it's a good feeling and I enjoy it, but at times it gets tiring. You have to deal with school and the music thing all at once. But I love it!

M: Lots of our readers are fans of Perezhilton.com. Perez wrote that you are "the future of female rap in America" and praised "Shake it to the Ground." How did it feel to be featured on his blog? Do you read Perez?
RR: I mean it was shocking at first when I found out who Perez [was] 'cause most people were like, he usually say[s] bad things about artists. But it was positive with me, so I was like, that's good! It [brought] lots of exposure to my page as well, so I thanked him very much! After I found out who he was I started reading.

M: What's most-played on your iPod right now?
RR: Natasha Bedingfield - "Love Like This." Sara Bareilles - "Love Song." Chris Brown, Ray-J - "Sexy Can I." Leona Lewis, Shawty Lo and more (LOL).

M: What has it been like to tour with M.I.A.?
RR: It has been fun. Crazy. I had a lot of great experiences, met tons of different people. It was cool, dope! Fun times, hard times, tiresome times (LOL)...a lot! But I loved it!

M: What's the real M.I.A. like?
RR: She is fun, outgoing, always geeking. She is real, basically herself. Gets along with people very well. One thing she is not [is] stuck up! If a fan got the chance to speak with her, she will def speak and won't be stubborn! So M.I.A. is just the same as people view her...

M: Have you played at any other schools? Which has been your favorite?
RR: I played at a high and elementary school in D.C. Pretty cool it was, but the best was a show in Dallas that I played with M.I.A. I can't remember the name of the joint but it was amazing!

M: What's next for you? Are you working on any new projects?
RR: I plan on releasing an album this year, and [...] I am touring with M.I.A. again!

11:41,
that is a common journalistic practice.
you are a moron.

SPRiNKLES said...

AGREED with 11:55 p.m. - Vassar has manymanymany haters and it sucks like w0ah. =/

and for those of you who are still under the delusion that mads is a gossip blog... look at the most recent posts.... very few have anything to do with anything like gossip.... gossip was just used as a way to get started, but as time went on, mads started getting more and more legit until now, where it's prob the most viewed legit NEWS site on campus, even getting more hits than the misc....

congrats, mads!!
XD
