A video from one of the sleeper releases of last Fall Piñata. Freddie keeps his grit at all costs, trudging around in this lo-fi number. He puts a day in his life inside the lens of a trip to Harold’s. That’s terrific metaphor sprinkled with the most times you’ve ever heard the word “b*tch.” At the bottom of the gutter, there’s a story he always finds. Watch it after the jump.

Either Hov has some extracurricular friends who are getting waaaaaaay out of pocket or this broad cray. We like to think it’s both but the evidence won’t skew in one direction. She doesn’t use her own name to boost this track’s profile, so we won’t either. “Mrs. Carter” is the scream from the abyss of fifteen lost minutes of fame infamy. This is a blow to the Main Chicks and Wifey party. One it may not ever bounce back from. Video after the jump.

The kick and the snap on this one makes it the ideal blend of ATL crunk and Bay Area bounce. This duo could put out an album of only these and we’d be cool. Rich Homie is a revivalist in this unique way, finding a groove where his melodies fit and sticking to it. Check the fraternity stepper inspired video after the jump.

From Retro Hash, here is a hippie Asher Roth with a soul infusion from ZZ Ward. This is a better look for him than the smug frat boy ethos of “I Love College” and that era. The grainy filter and hazy images give light to already sparkling harmonies in a full musical experience unlike AR’s previous stuff. Check it out after the jump.
