Less than 8 months after releasing his debut album, Gutta, on Def Jam Records, South Florida rapper Ace Hood returns Tuesday, June 30 with Ruthless.
The 21-year-old from Broward County has been slowly gaining buzz for his association with DJ Khaled (of WEDR 99 Jamz) and his 2008 single "Cash Flow."
Ruthless features the hit single "Overtime" with singers Akon and T-Pain, plus appearances from Ludacris, The-Dream, and Miami rappers Rick Ross and Ball Greezy.
I caught Ace opening for Method Man and Redman in Gainesville last year, and although he didn't overly impress me live, he's managed to achieve some mainstream success, especially in South Florida.
Look for my review of Ruthless in The Miami Herald on Monday, July 6.
