Florida rapper Ace Hood has always been the underdog when trying to squeeze his way into the commercial realm of things. Though he had a bit of success with track “Cash Flow,” it was his explosion comeback of “Hustle Hard” that sealed the deal. At first glance at Ace Hood, he appears to be a talented, more buff Lil’ Wayne clone to some. But, those who have been listening for a while understand that he has his own style with how he flows. His street rhymes of hustling and grinding mixtapes with DJ Khaled, have finally paid off for him musically. Many artists have not been able to dip away from the music scene and come back as strong as he has with an edge to the game like no other. Reciting the lyric of “Closed mouths don’t get fed on this boulevard,” lets you know he’s serious about climbing to the top. Not only has he mastered the mixtape arena, he’s now at #8 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop charts with his single “Body to Body” featuring Chris Brown. Chris was a great asset to the track as he’s notorious for putting the right mix of R&B spin on a rap single. Though released earlier in the year, the single is still an in-demand listen for many fans. The popular Jay-Z and Kanye West hip-hop classic, “Otis” now bows down to this slow jam setting new ground conquered for Ace. He’s toned things down a bit, switching over to something more of a mature nature. Coming from #8 to #9 on the charts, shows the true hustle and validity of the artist. He’s been holding down the charts with the track for 16 weeks thus far. Anyone who can compete with the Roc Nation and G.O.O.D. music presidents must be doing something right.
