Ace Hood, born Antoine McColister in Broward County, Florida, knew he was destined for greatness. After an injury derailed his burgeoning football career, Ace turned to his true passion, rapping. At the age of 17, Ace teamed up with the Broward-County-based entertainment label, Dollaz & Dealz, to record the hit quot M.O.E.quot; (Money Over Everything) which sparked an immediate buzz in South Florida. After fine-tuning his craft on local crowds, he set his sights on performing for DJ Khaled at his annual birthday bash. That meeting turned into Ace becoming the first artist signed to quot;We the Best Music Group,quot; an exclusive partnership with Def Jam Recordings. Since then, Ace has released two singles, which are setting the stage for his debut album, GUTTA.
