With ace on his sleeve, Antoine McColister began his domination in hip-hop world. Better known as Ace Hood, he turned to his true passion, rapping after an injury derailed his burgeoning football career. He teamed up with the Broward-County-based entertainment label, Dollaz & Dealz, to record the hit "M.O.E." ("Money Over Everything") which sparked an immediate buzz in South Florida and helped him gain exposure like never before.
He then set his sights on performing for DJ Khaled at his annual birthday bash, and he ended up being the first artist signed to the disc jokey/producer's label. Immediately, he dropped another hot new single "Cash Flow" featuring T-Pain and Rick Ross, and followed it with his major-label debut album "Gutta".
