Ace Hood – Trials & Tribulations
Out of all his bodies of work, Trials & Tribulations is Ace Hood’s premiere platform for showing that his position in the new school of hip-hop is well deserved. From the production, to the way he spits bars, the confidence is noticeable—and as a result makes for some quality material. Trials is a street album for sure, but smooth cuts like “The Come Up” with Anthony Hamilton sneak their way into the mix with great ease. Plus, you can’t say with a straight face that “Bugatti” didn’t knock at every party you’ve been to all summer. You just can’t.
