On his latest street single, Bout Me, Khaled protégé Ace Hood makes a few shocking admissions: for example, he doesn’t really consider himself a G, and he hates making money… just kidding! The truth is, of course, just the opposite. Set for inclusion on his sophomore LP (set to drop this summer), the cut finds the Ruthless rapper joining forces with fellow South Floridian Ball Greezy to make it known that he’s all about his paper, and that he does what he does, first and foremost, for the streets. Both collaborators bring plenty of energy to the time-tested subject matter, and the appropriately-named Cardiak adds to the pulse-pounding vibe, kicking off the low-frequency, synth-driven instrumental with his trademark ‘heart monitor flatlining’ effect. This hard-hitting cut is sure to please the “young O.G.‘s” the emcee shouts out on his hook—here’s hoping this audience will do their part to make Ruthless the success Hood deserves, not a repeat of Gutta‘s disappointing sales numbers.
