Biography

Port St. Lucie, Florida (2007 – present)

Antoine McColister (born May 11, 1988 in Port St. Lucie, Florida), better known by his stage name Ace Hood, is an American rapper signed to DJ Khaled’s label, We The Best Music. Following a football injury in the tenth grade he began to seriously consider rapping as a career. In 2007, he met DJ Khaled and gave him his demo tape. Khaled asked Ace to rap over the instrumental of I’m So Hood and then decided to sign him. His debut album, Gutta, was released in 2008 and featured appearances from T-Pain, Rick Ross, Akon, Flo Rida and Trey Songz.

    honestly i love ace hood but he has released atleast 4-5 mixtapes that i enjoy more than the latest album :/ idk why his albums dont match the tapes in quality in my opinion... its still not bad just nothing great, his latest Starvation 2 blows this away imo. not hatin, ace is consistent this just didnt deliver for me, on listen one at least...

    I remember French Montana said, "Don't pray for me, pray for the weak". So why does he ask somebody to pray for him? lol
