Biography: Ace Hood
Florida's heat has been radiating over hip-hop for many years. From the legendary “Uncle” Luke Campbell, Trick Daddy and Trina to DJ Khaled, Flo Rida, T-Pain, Rick Ross and Plies, the sunshine state has always produced hot music. The next artist to emerge from this sizzling climate is Ace Hood!
Ace was the first artist signed to DJ Khaled's label We the Best distributed by Def Jam Records. His hot new single Cash Flow featuring T-Pain and Rick Ross is currently blazing the radio waves everywhere. Once I played the song for Rick Ross he loved it and he put his whole swag to it” explains Khaled. The song was pretty much done but we felt to make it more of a hit record, get somebody like T-Pain who's running the game right now, on the hook to make it go that much further. The song is setting the stage for Ace's debut album, Gutta, with guest appearances from some of rap's elite including Trick Daddy, Flo Rida, Akon, Plies and production from Cool & Dre, The Runners, Danjahandz and J.U.S.T.C.E. League, Ace’s deck is definitely stacked.
This album is definitely gonna be a classic, Ace says confidently. People are expecting a lot out of me not only because I'm on Khaled’s label, but because everyone knows that the ace is ranked as the highest.
