Since he dropped his street anthem, Cash Flow, this past February, rapper Ace Hood has made a name for himself (and plenty of money). With his forthcoming debut, Gutta, inching closer to its August 29 drop date, DJ Khaled’s young artist has chosen his all-important follow-up single. On Ride, Ace is accompanied by the trendy hook-singing of Trey Songz and the production talents of The
Inkredibles, as he lays his feelings on the line for special someone. Following the blueprint of many emcees before him, the Broward Country native is clearly appealing to the music-buying female demographic–a smart A&R move after dropping a debut single directed at a completely different crowd. So, will Ace’s career ride or die? Check back on August 29.
