Trials & Tribulations (Bonus Tracks, Explicit)

Trials & Tribulations by Ace Hood
Released: Jul 2013
Future's riotously loud hook on "Bugatti" sums up Ace Hood's problem: He's often overshadowed, whether it's bosses DJ Khaled and Lil Wayne or Miami den mother Betty Wright using her five-octave range to blaze "Mama." Too bad -- he's an underrated rapper with a social conscience, with his best moments here being the lyrical activism of "The Come Up" and "Another Statistic." But he seems worn down by critics of his high-octane delivery, so he switches his flow to a growl ("We Them N*gg*s") and a plainspoken voice ("How I'm Raised"). Somewhere in the confusion lie the seeds of a great album.
