As promised, the first release out this year coming from Cash Money is from Ace Hood. Probably not the most demanded rapper out there, he is coming from a different breed. Within the past couple months, he is able to keep his name out there. For the second installment of the Starvation, Ace Hood feeds the street with 15+ new records.
From the previous damage he did on records such as my personnal summer anthem ”We On” and ”Balling Like a B*tch”, the motivation coming from this is to hustle like he was going broke. On the intro ”Root Of Evil” produced by Young Chop, compliments Ace’s flow for the whole length of the record. In the same way, Meek Mill and Plies are able to increase the hype of the tape for the next 2 joints following. On the first ”Starvation” showed the sort of versatility that a lot of people have been hesitant to believe Ace Hood possesses. By comparison, records like ”Why” or ”Art of Deception” the trap beats has been put aside to display his thoughts on life. ”Fuck The World” the realist shit he ever wrote is the way he vent his frustrations from all the misleading things the government has brought and how life events like the loss of his daughter has affected hi m as he spits: ‘‘Money is the root of evil/But thats that shit that gets me focused/Sometimes I still can believe I’m a father/No pain can describe and how to reside when losing a daughter/ ” . There is no way we will deny Mr. Hood got a nice flow, and a lot of rappers in the game has stole his flow from his ”Hustle Hard” winning comeback flow. Thereby, DJ Khaled is making sure people are paying homage to Ace Hood flow on the last record of the tape December 31st(the original release date of the tape.). Other than the previous mentionned, the mixtape featured French Montana, Kevin Cossom and Yo Gotti. Standout performances from The Renegades, Young Chop and Jhalil Beats for the vibrant beats.
There is no way we will considered him as a contender for the number one spot, but one thing for sure, Ace can rap his ass off(pause). Far from annoying, the tape is pretty good and we should all have winning picks on this one. No release date for his album due later on this year, but he’ll keep on expending his street hits catalogue and his strive for the hustle will bring him somewhere soon. After this tape, all the cliché towards him should be dropped if you still have some. The lane he’s occupying his loaded but there is always room for those who ”HUSTLE HARD”.
