Cool to see someone else giving De Tropix a bit of recognition.

Rye Rye could also be called the “M.I.A.’s hype-girl”. She sang paper plane with her, and she’s amazing. Her song “Shake it to the ground” is incredible.

Yeah, Rye Rye kicks tons of ass. The talent that surrounds M.I.A. is mind boggling. She’s THE artist of the decade(in my opinion), and she has all this talent around her yet it doesn’t eclipse what she does. In fact, M.I.A. seems to elevate those around her. Very few artists are capable of doing that.
