Ace Hood Releases “Jamaica” Video

Fridays are typically slow on the news front, but this afternoon Ace Hood broke the day’s silence with the release of a killer video for “Jamaica.”

Five months have passed since Ace Hood released his Starvation 3 mixtape, and in that time he has released a series of visual accompaniments for the record. “Jamaica” continues that trend with a series of slick, high-gloss performance sequences that feature Hood and a gaggle of beautiful ladies. The setup and execution is pretty much by the numbers as far as hip-hop is concerned, but for fans of Hood it’s more than enough to …


MIXTAPE REVIEW: Ace Hood – ‘Starvation 3’

Artist: Ace Hood
Album: Starvation 3
Genre: Hip-Hop

Ace Hood has spent the past several years on the cusp of being the next megastar in hip-hop, and by all accounts 2013 was his biggest year to date. “Bugatti” paved the way to a national audience unlike any of his previous efforts, but his album, Trials And Tribulation, failed to leave the lasting impression made by similarly timed releases from many of his peers. Fall followed soon after, and though Hood had a few headlines in the final months of 2013 he remained largely quiet while focusing on …

DJ Khaled Streams “I’m Still” Featuring Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Ace Hood, and Wale

No one can ever say DJ Khaled does not know how to choose his collaborators. Even when the songs are a bust the lineup brings the clicks, and in the digital age that is all you need to be a Buzzworthy name.

Khaled surprised fans last night by releasing two new songs over the course of several hours. We’re going to give each its fair time to shine, so for this post we’ll be discussing “I’m Still,” which features Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Ace Hood, and MMG member Wale.

REVIEW: Ace Hood – Trials & Tribulations

Artist: Ace Hood
Album: Trials & Tribulations
Genre: Hip Hop

Three albums in, Ace Hood seems as determined as ever to prove himself with the release of Trials & Tribulations. His first studio release since 2011’s Blood, Sweat, & Tears, Hood has spent the past two years skyrocketing through the hip hop ranks on the back of monstrous singles and star-studded remixes. Now, with more eyes on his career than ever before, Hood delivers fourteen tracks that play like an autobiography, and the results leave a bit to be desired.

Ace Hood Debuts “Before The Rollie” Featuring Meek Mill

Less than a week away from the highly-anticipated release of Trials & Tribulations, Ace Hood has debuted a new single entitled, “Before The Rollie.”

Ace Hood has been unstoppable in 2013. Kicking off the year with the release of his massive single “Bugatti,” Hood has spent the past six months going from notable hip hop player to a contender for best in the game, and on July 16 the album release everyone has been waiting for will finally occur. “Before The Rollie” is a deep Trials & Tribulations cut featuring Meek Miller, and like the singles that came before …

Nino Brown 2013

MUSIC VIDEO: Nino Brown Ft. French Montana, Ace Hood & Yo Gotti – “Tryna Come Up (Remix)”

If there is one thing that Nino Brown and the crew know how to do it’s get money.

Nino Brown invites French Montana, Ace Hood and Yo Gotti along for the official remix video for “Tryna Come Up” and show us how it is done. This song was released back in November and has not received visual treatment until now. I guess they were too busy counting all those stacks.

Watch the music video for Nino Brown’s remix to “Tryna Come Up” and blast this on your stereo.


MIXTAPE: UTG’s Ignorant Anthems 2 – Up All Night

Summer is here, and if you ask us there is no way to better celebrate the arrival of the season than by creating a mixtape that can serve as a fitting soundtrack for the memories waiting to be made.

Last November, we released a mixtape called Ignorant Anthems, and the response from our readers was overwhelming. We loved the songs included in the mix, but always thought it could have been better. Six months passed, a few dozens ridiculous songs found their way through our inbox, and now we are confident we have the most outrageous, fun, crazy, wild …


STREAM: Ace Hood Ft. Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Meek Mill, French Montana, 2 Chainz, Future, DJ Khaled & Birdman – “Bugatti” (Remix)

Holy shit. Call the rest of hip hop and tell them to take the day off because Ace Hood just released the remix of the year.

Recruiting essentially every major rapper outside of Kanye and Jay-Z, Ace Hood has assembled the most star-studded remix for “Bugatti” that anyone could have imagined. Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Meek Mill, French Montana, 2 Chainz, Future, DJ Khaled, and Birdman all add verses to the chart-dominating hit, and though the quality of each verse varies the overall result is second-to-none. Personally, I think Meek Mill steals the show, but with this many features there is …

Not to mention featured verses on Rant 2 from the likes of Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Ace Hood, French Montana, and Whoo Da Kid, among others.
