Ace Hood – one of DJ KhalidThe former artists – since becoming completely independent – were given a fabulous Christmas gift to celebrate their success … and it comes courtesy of his wife, who has found the right way to explain it.
The Florida-based rapper was welcomed with a custom memento from his wife, Shella maryOn Christmas day … which he documented with his camera. Since leaving Universal Music Group and all of its subsidiaries (We The Best), he has documented the millions of streams he has documented.
Shella writes, “When @acehood was on a major recording label, they excelled at celebrating victory. Ace has a lot of plaques in the house from that era. Since Ace became independent, he had to go through his projects. No plaque was found. Ace is very talented that he does not have flowers while he can smell them. “
She points out that the plaques honor her first two independent projects – ‘Trust the Process’ and ‘Trust the Procedure II: Undefined’ – while adding, “Because in this house we don’t wait on the verification we want . – We give it to ourselves. I love you @acehood. “
You can tell how much this meant to Ace … he was close to bursting as he unpacked the gift of sweets. It also symbolizes how difficult it is for independent artists to have it if they are not part of the giant machine that is a major record label. Not only are you no longer formally recognized … but most albums may later dub “Mixtape”.
Ace overtook the big label in 2016 … and is doing his own thing (a lot of success, as we can see). Great that he has found a support group that recognizes him.
