Ace Hood Net Worth
Ace Hood Net Worth: Ace Hood is an American rapper who has a net worth of $5 million. Antoine McColister (aka Ace Hood) was born May 11, 1988 in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Raised by his mother in Deerfield Beach, 20 miles north of Miami, rap music became his full-time obsession after he suffered a football injury in his sophomore year in high school, effectively putting an end to any notion of a professional sports career. By age 17, he was recording tracks for local imprint Dollaz & Dealz and even had a few street singles, including 2006's M.O.E. (Money Over Everything). In November of the following year, Ace maneuvered his way into meeting DJ Khaled at local radio station 99 Jamz and handed the Miami DJ his demo. Within a matter of weeks, DJ Khaled signed Ace Hood, then 19 years old, as the first artist to his newly formed We the Best Music, which obtained distribution through Def Jam just a few weeks later. Ace's Def Jam debut single, the Runners-produced Cash Flow, featuring Rick Ross and singer T-Pain, arrived in early 2008 and turned out to be a smash hit on South Florida radio. A few mixtapes and guest appearances later, Hood released his first full-length, Gutta, in summer 2008. The album Ruthless followed the next year and peaked at No. 5 on Billboard's R&B albums chart. Two years would pass before the ambitious album Blood Sweat & Tears was released, featuring some of Hood's best work to that point. His album Trials & Tribulations followed in 2013 and landed the rapper on Birdman's Cash Money label. Hood released his Starvation 3 mixtape on January 17, 2014. The free project included features from We The Best label-mates Vado and Mavado, as well as Betty Wright and Kevin Cossom. Production for the mixtape came courtesy of Cool & Dre, The Renegades, StreetRunner, and The Beat Bully among others.
