After Ace Hood signed to DJ Khaled's We The Best Music label, he took a fast trajectory toward stardom. His decision to become a rapper was cemented after suffering an injury while playing football during his sophomore year of high school. Soon afterward, he scored a local hit with "M.O.E. (Money Over Everything)." A short time later, Ace decided to wait outside Miami's 99 Jamz building, where Khaled had a radio show, with the hope that the popular DJ would allow him to perform at his birthday party. Instead, Khaled signed him to a record deal. Ace quickly grabbed the national spotlight scoring hits with the Rick Ross and T-Pain-assisted "Cash Flow" and the Trey Songz-assisted "Ride." Ace recently released his debut, DJ Khaled Presents Ace Hood Gutta.
