By my estimation, there are few emcees who pour more Blood, Sweat & Tears into their hustle than the Ace Hood; despite a career that’s had its share of setbacks, the indefatigable Panhandle State repper has responded to every setback by continuing to grind ever-harder. That can-do attitude is on full display on Go N Get It, single numero dos off Hood’s forthcoming full-length. Here, a characteristically street-ready instrumental by production wunderkind Lex Luger (who, notably, manages to make harpsichord sound hard as nails) clatters in the background as the freestyle series alumnus updates listeners on his eternal quest for cash. In between declarations of commitment to his paper chase, Hood gives us a little insight into the personal struggles that motivate his grind: ”Bills due, money runnin’ low / Plus my cousin lost her mind and had an overdose.” Will Ace’s third studio album finally bring him the success he needs in order to make financial worries a thing of the past? We won’t know for certain till Blood, Sweat & Tears arrives on store shelves later this year.
