Thanks to the success of Ace Hood‘s second single, Ride (and its star-studded remix), it seems as though the long-delayed Gutta has finally secured a release date: November 18. Thanks to the support of top-shelf industry DJ/promoter/hype man DJ Khaled, and his status as one of XXL Magazine’s Top 10 Freshmen, the Deerfield Beach, Florida native has already picked another single. Drawing obvious inspiration from Def Jam labelmate Young Jeezy‘s summer anthem, Put On, Hood performs Get Em Up with nearly identical delivery, rhyme pattern, and “eastside…westside…southside…” ad-libs on the hook, over another heavy-banging Drumma Boy beat. Still, when Jeezy put all the pieces together, the result was a smash hit; there’s no reason why Ace’s Get Em Up shouldn’t be the same.
