The "Voice of Baltimore," Rye Rye, has a new single out today. "Boom Boom" is a bouncy jam that will sound familiar to any late '90s pre-teen with its sampling of "Boom Boom Boom Boom" by the Vengaboys. (We also like the intro, which combines a Missy Elliott circa "Pass that Dutch"-style "Hootie Hoo!" with a pinch of Ke$ha's "Tik Tok.")
The hip-hop artist has remained a steady fixture on the indie rap scene since signing with M.I.A.'s label, N.E.E.T. Records a few years back. Though she's had modest success with songs like "Shake It to the Ground" and collabs with M.I.A., Blaqstarr, Diplo and Robyn, fans have had to wait a few years for Rye Rye's debut album, GO! POP! BANG!, which finally comes out on May 15th.
