Ace Hood Artist Management
Ace Hood was born on May 11, 1988 in Deerfield Beach, Florida and raised by his mother in Deerfield Beach, part of Broward County. Following a football injury in the 10th grade and after realizing he wouldn’t be able to become professional, the Broward County native began to seriously consider rapping as a career. In 2007, he met DJ Khaled outside the offices of WEDR 99 Jamz, a South Florida radio station that mainly plays hip hop and contemporary R&B music. After Ace gave him an autobiography and demo tape, Khaled asked Ace to rap over the instrumental of “I’m So Hood” and later signed Hood to his label, We the Best. Ace was named with several others to the Freshmen of 09 by XXL magazine.
His first album, Gutta, was released in 2008. Singles included “Cash Flow” featuring T-Pain and Rick Ross and “Ride” featuring Trey Songz. Hood also released a mixtape, Ace Won’t Fold, and made a guest performance among several rappers on DJ Khaled’s single “Out Here Grindin'”.
