Our favorite party people over at Hard French welcome Baltimore’s 22-year old emcee Rye Rye to Public rye ryeWorks on Saturday, August 3rd!

According to the 2013 BET Awards, Rye Rye is one of the reigning queens of hip-hop. Rye Rye’s Bmore beats and sharp lyrical stylings have attracted collaborators like MIA, Drake, Robyn, and the Scissor Sisters. Her BET nomination came in the middle of a stint (following in the footsteps of fellow rap diva heavyweight Lil Kim) making the A-list queer party circuit. Her recent gigs have included LA’s Mustache Mondays and New York’s Westgay.

For her opening act on August 3rd, Hard French has tapped Bay Area queer rapper Micahtron, who has held down party cyphers for years on the strength of her dope, lyrics-forward stage presence. The two are joined by DJ sets from Hard French (Carnita, Brown Amy), queer hip-hop monthly up-and-comers Swagger Like Us (Boyfriend, davO), and long-running dance party Mango’s Olga T.
