Since we’re afraid we might have ruined your day earlier, with this awful new track by Leighton Meester, we feel like we need to make a positive contribution to your musical diet. And here it is: a brand new mixtape from Rye Rye. As Baltimore CityPaper notes, it doesn’t come with any tracklisting or credits, but we’re enjoying its manic, dancefloor-friendly hip-hop nonetheless. (We’re also digging that she sampled Ninjasonik’s “Art School Girls.”) You can download it for free, as long as you’re willing to give Rye Rye your email address.
And if that isn’t enough Charm City goodness to get you through the day, there’s also a great new video of Rye Rye covering Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the U.S.A.” — totally unironically, and with a trio of great male dancers. We saw her do this one live, and it totally killed. Watch it after the jump.
