From The Vault: Rye Rye

In 2008, long before M.I.A.'s song was on the soundtracks of Pineapple Express and Slumdog Millionaire, her Grammy performance, or her marriage, pregnancy, retirement, comeback, and controversial new video, she took the stage at Vassar's ACDC with an up-and-coming named Rye Rye. Last Saturday the two performed on Governor's Island to thousands of concert-goers, including many Vassar students.

"She is fun, outgoing, always geeking," Rye Rye told us about M.I.A. back in 2008. In honor of Saturday's concert, check out our interview with the rapper from when she was just getting started in the business.
