Ace Hood closes out the year with a new banger.
Ace Hood has been putting out a steady stream of dope music, including the underrated Trust The Process. Today, the Floridian rapper has come through with another banger, the hypnotic “Be Calm.” Over a reverse-delay-laden instrumental from Foreign Teck & Oz, Ace Hood wastes little time before going in, calling out the competition with a relaxed, cocky flow. “Fans tellin’ me to keep goin’ gotta stay true to my purpose,” raps Hood. “Seein’ n***as through a real lens, they tough guys on the surface.” Appropriately enough, Ace sounds notably calm on the record, which might be a little frustrating for those waiting for him to really spaz on a beat that undeniably calls for it. He does, however, kick things up in the third verse.
What did ya’ll think about this one? I know fans have appreciated Ace Hood’s recent output, and from the look of it, the once quiet emcee seems to be intent on continuing his run well into the new year.
Fans tellin’ me to keep goin’ gotta stay true to my purpose
Seein’ n***as through a real lens, they tough guys on the surface
We ain’t buyin’ that hype, we ain’t buyin’ our lights
Run around for that cheque, I ain’t talkin’ about Nikes
