Backed by his biggest hit to date, “Bugatti,” Ace Hood‘s forthcoming album, Trials & Tribulations, is one of rap’s most anticipated albums of the summer.

Ace Hood has provided a video for the realest street single of the moment–“Have Mercy.” Although the plot-less video is less entertaining than the video for “Bugatti,” it completes its task–prepping fans for the bigger picture: Trials & Tribulations. Read More
“Underreated” isn’t a word I toss around loosely; Ace Hood, however, is indeed underrated. I’m not sure if this derives from his affiliation with DJ Khaled or his lack of mainstream hits, but he approaches every beat with this sort of focused, raw aggression that enthralls the most casual listener.

“Death to the competition, may they rest in peace,” he raps on his latest hood testimonial, “Have Mercy.” It’s over an eerie backdrop crafted by Cardiak. With more cuts like this and the Future-assisted “Bugatti,” Trials & Tribulations will be flying off shelves come July 16th. Read More

R. Kelly, 45, makes it rain in the strip club with Ace Hood, 23, while the ladies twerk to his synth-heavy new song, “It’s On.” Evidently, the song was released in hopes of attracting the younger crowd to his forthcoming project, Black Panties, not to be confused with his other album, Write Me Back, which is due out later this year. He even recruits DJ Khaled, 36, to add unnecessary adlibs to the mediocre track.
Shad Moss, commonly known as Bow Wow, will demonstrate his R&B taste on his forthcoming album, Underrated. The 24-year old recruited frequent collaborator Chris Brown, Miguel, and Musiq Soulchild for his first release on Cash Money Records.
