Who Does Ace Hood Think He Is?

As he returns to WHITE Dubai, Ace Hood’s spirituality and Zen make for a pretty chilled life in the spotlight

With four albums to his name, 29-year-old rapper Ace Hood is already a veritable veteran of the rap scene. After he had the cajones to approach DJ Khaled outside a Miami radio station and hand him his mixtape, the uber-producer signed the Florida-born star to his We The Best Music Group label, and he’s since worked with the likes of Trey Songz, Akon, Rick Ross and Birdman.
Best known for his hits Bugatti, which went platinum with over one million single sales, and Hustle Hard, the title of the latter is pure autobiographical thanks to Ace’s early days spent hitting up open mic events and talent shows to spread the word of his burgeoning talent and drive.
As Ace hits the stage at Dubai night club, WHITE Dubai, on Friday March 23, we dug around to find out exactly who this guy thinks he is…

He’s really into fitness: “Sometimes I do MMA training, sometimes I go cycling, sometimes I do weight training. Right now I’m in the calisthenics phase, and once that’s over I might pop back into weight training.”

He’s pretty zen: “…I started getting into meditation, and I ended up connecting with a healer and learning more about myself. It helped me calm down and remain centered. I meditate every day.”

He values artistic freedom: “I’m free from restraints, free from stigmas, free from the industry standards. I’m living out my purpose and living my life according to what inspires me and what moves me.”

He’s a story teller: “I’m always trying to be present as possible. When I’m writing, I’m trying to think about what’s really happening to me. That’s why if you listen really closely, you can tell all my projects have a story.”

He trusts his instincts: “I had to understand that the glow is in me and the more centered I am, the more I’m able to identify who’s right for me and helps me to remain strong.”
