Ace Hood’s new song, You Already Know, operates on the premise that you’ve already heard of his prior exploits as a hustler and a drug dealer. Actually, Ace, I haven’t. Admittedly, I probably should have, as he likely won’t stay unknown for much longer. You Already Know is a radio-ready street anthem, complete with ginormous southern production and a sneakily catchy hook to boot. Hood brings enough swagger to the table to make each and every word he says believable, regardless of how outrageous some of his claims are. Kane Beatz’s production features a wailing organ and hyperactive drums that fittingly complement his barking. This track will appear on Ace’s debut album, Gutta, due out in August.
Note: The streaming of “You Already Know” has temporarily been suspended.
