I've got a certain amount of love for Ace Hood. For starters, he's the first rapper to go major out of Broward County in a long time, possibly ever. There's been a few "could have been/should have been's" out there, but nobody has made it stick to the degree that Ace has as a rapper. He rose to the level that he's at now because of hard work, not just because DJ Khaled cosigns for him.
He's also not shy about representing Broward instead of just claiming Miami on his MySpace page like other local bands. (Don't worry Postmarks, I'm not looking at you.) So I give him props for that as well.

I'm wondering if anyone can count all of the rap celebs that pop up in his new video for the remix of his popular song, "Ride." If anything, at least we know Def Jam isn't afraid to spend money on the guy, which is a good sign.
