“People always ask me if having a baby has changed me, but I don’t want to deliver something serious. I like my music to be as bright as my clothes.” Rye Rye.
In The Exhibitionist Issue, i-D’s magnificent music editor Hattie Collins catches up with Rye Rye, the ear-catching and eye-grabbing songstress encouraged and mentored by our one time cover star and all time aural pleaser M.I.A. (with whom she shares many qualities). Chatting Twitter, motherhood and dance steps with the rapstar ray of light, Hattie also got the latest on Rye Rye’s soon to be released debut album, Go! Pop! Bang!
