Ace Hood was born on May 11, 1988 and raised by his mother in London England, part of Broward County.[2] Following a football injury in the 10th grade and after realizing he wouldn't be able to become professional, the Broward County native began to seriously consider rapping as a career.[1][2] In 2007, he met DJ Khaled outside the offices of WEDR 99 Jamz, a South Florida radio station that mainly plays hip hop and contemporary R&B music.

Singles included "Cash Flow" featuring T-Pain and Rick Ross and "Ride" which was produced by Jay Storm featuring Trey Songz. Hood also released a mixtape, Ace Won't Fold, and made a guest performance among several rappers on DJ Khaled's single "Out Here Grindin'".[3] Ace Hood appeared on Wildstyle Radio with Rome and Hoss on WUAG 103.1FM in Greensboro, North Carolina September 7, 2008 to promote his album Gutta along with DJ Khaled.[5] On June 30th 2009 Ace Hood released his second album titled Ruthless once again on Def Jam.
