“Trials & Tribulations” by Ace Hood
On July 16, 2013, Broward Native Ace Hood released his 4th album “Trials & Tribulations.” He has been an underrated artist since he first came out onto the scene. While being signed to DJ Khaled’s “We The Best,” Ace Hood has released 3 albums and a heavy amount of mixtapes that have separated him from all the rest. Although he is still trying to figure the right formula for his success, he is starting to really impress fans with his work ethics and his drive for success.
The album begins with a church sermon intro, pretty much setting a tone of personal conflict. Ace Hood has always been unsure if he’s a man of God or the streets and he devotes most of his songs trying to answer the question. A lot of his songs have to do with his struggles whether it’s in the streets or his own home. He even takes on events that have happened in the world like the Aurora and newton shootings in the song “F*** The World” the priorities of political officials in the aftermath.
Of course, not all of “Trials & Tribulations” is introspective. Ace Hood still comes with the club banger joints like “Bugatti” featuring Future and “We Outchea” featuring Lil Wayne but other tracks like “Rider” featuring Chris Brown, seem out of place. Regardless of its hiccups, “Trials & Tribulations” is a big step forward for Ace Hood. Signing to Young Money is not always a good move because they never put you out but it doesn’t seem like it’s a problem for Ace Hood. This will definitely be the album that will put him up there with the rest. If you haven’t heard it by now, make sure you check it out.
