As an L.A. resident I’m accustomed to living a certain life style: beautiful weather, beautiful women and the occasional riot, but even my sunniest days can’t compare to the cash soaked Life Style southern flamespitter Ace Hood and teen sensation Sean Kingston have in mind. Ace, whose last Booth offering Bed Room Music didn’t exactly light sheets on fire, goes radio-hit-or-bust on Life Style as he follows the blueprint laid down by Whatever You Like with rhymes about, what else, having money and spending money, sentiments echoed by Kingston (wait, is he even old enough to go to a strip club?). On the production tip Boi-1da, who’s been absolutely murdering beats lately (see his work on Not Afraid), takes it light and easy, offering Ace and Sean a lightly snapping beat to do their stunting over. Love it or hate it, I’ve got a feeling this one’s gonna be making its way over to radio soon. And if it does, I’m sure we’ll get more concrete details on Ace’s as yet untitled and unscheduled new album.
