Baltimore rapper Rye Rye will tour with M.I.A on the Sri Lankan-British rapper's Fall tour. She will appear in 11 stops altogether, including dates in Philadelphia and Boston, Interscope records announced today.

Rye Rye was one of the first artists signed to M.I.A.'s vanity record, N.E.E.T. Records, at Interscope and will release her first album, "Go! Pop! Bang!" next year.


It's not clear from the press release if Rye Rye will appear with M.I.A. at her headlining appearance at Virgin FreeFest. But a festival spokeswoman said there are currently no changes to the lineup.

Meanwhile, the Baltimore native has been defending Kanye West post-Video Music Awards on her Twitter.
