DJ Khaled finally made it big for Miami in 2007. He posted a major hit with “We Takin’ Over” and did not look back. The DJ quickly landed a deal with Def Jam to take over the Southern extension of the label. Along with the CEO deal, Khaled also launched his We The Best Music Group.
While DJ Khaled was making it big in 2007, Ace Hood was just trying to get noticed. During the fall of 2007, Ace got his big break and DJ Khaled took him under his wing. When he landed his vanity label, Khaled made Ace Hood the face of both his record label and the revived Def Jam South.
During the summer of 2008, Ace Hood exploded onto the scene with his “Cash Flow” single and his Gutta album. However, things slowly declined for Ace Hood from then on. His popularity waned and his follow-up album, Ruthless, did horrible numbers. Ace Hood acknowledged this and he openly discussed it.
Early last month, Ace Hood said he was going to get his career back on track. Within weeks, he released his current hit single, “Hustle Hard.” The song has become an anthem for all of those who are trying to make it to the next level. Ace Hood received a major boost when heavyweights Rick Ross and Lil Wayne jumped on the remix to his hit single. Now, with his third album, Blood, Sweat, &Â Tears, will be released on the heels of his biggest hit so far and is said to be full of even more anthems.
