Did you hear the news? Rye Rye is expecting! Unfortunately, she had to dip out of opening for A-Trak on his most recent 10,000LB Hamburger Tour, and couldn’t play Lollapaloza as she has a child due in October. And to add insult to injury, her boyfriend, Evan Battle, was gunned down a few weeks ago during a drive-by in Baltimore. He was shot 4 times, one of the bullets piercing his spinal cord paralyzing him from the waste down. On the plus side, yet another hipster icon is going to be having a kid to cary on her legacy (M.I.A. paving the way earlier this year). Having played with Rye Rye in the past, I can tell you that she is one tough cookie and I doubt this is the last we’ll be seeing of this one. We’re all with you, Rye Rye! (via washington post)
