Watch: Sasha Go Hard “Pretty Fly”

Taken from the forthcoming mixtape Round 3, "Pretty Fly" sees the Chicago rapper Sasha Go Hard cleaning up both lyrically and sonically in an attempt at reaching a wider audience. The ghetto-claustriphobia of her previous "drill" mixtape Do You Know Who I Am? is replaced on "Pretty Fly" by a more care-free party atmosphere. Thankfully, Sasha's rhymes work just as well in this new context, though the video is a bit questionable (I'm not sure if the inclusion of the white hipster types is an embrace or ridicule of her newfound fanbase). Whether or not this new direction is a reflection of Round 3 as a whole, we will have to wait for its release on Febuary 4 to find out.
