Last night, Ace Hood came through with his brand new album Mr. Hood, a treat to the loyal fans who have been riding with him since the beginning. Rest assured that they are legion; Hood's following continues to sing his praises, championing him as an underrated voice in the hip-hop pantheon. Multitalented as both a melodist and a spitter, Ace Hood showcases many elements of his skillset on his latest album.
Still, there's a simple pleasure to be gleaned in hearing him snap over a banger, as he does on the early-listen highlight "Trampoline." Taking to some urgent production from KiloKeys Beatz, Hood kicks back with an effortless flow-scheme. X-rated and debaucherous in nature, Hood's night out finds him prowling for some companionship, preferably of the "centerfold" variety. "I told them bring the Henessy, no gold bottles," he declares, staying true to his principles even in inebriation.
While Mr. Hood is worthy of a listen in its entirety, "Trampoline" should prove a solid starting point for casual listeners and die-hard day ones alike. Be sure to show some love to the Floridian lyricist in the comments below.
Man she got a big booty, she wobble-wobble
Looking like a top model or Coke bottle
She know that I'm a ball player
Like Globe Trotters
Leading every lost mind, no role model
I told them bring the Henessy, no gold bottles
