The Low Point: Ace Hood Speaks On The Struggle, “I got an eviction notice at my condo.”

23-year-old rapper Ace Hood spoke to Complex magazine about struggling financially, professionally, and personally. His first two albums 2008’s Gutta and 2009’s Ruthless didn’t do too well or spawn any major success. But the Miami native didn’t give up. In fact, he hit the studio and went harder. Hood came back  with “Hustle Hard”—the biggest song of his career. On August 9th, Ace Hood will be dropping his third studio album Blood, Sweat & Tears. The disc has collaborations from T-Pain, Yo Gotti, Chris Brown, Kevin Cossom, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. Below are some excerpts:

“The low point of my career was after my second album dropped. My second project wasn’t exactly what I wanted it to be. Nothing went wrong [with my situation]. But it was a little rushed and it just kinda happened.

“I was going through a lot of personal issues and financial issues. I was feeling fine, but being in that star light, people don’t like to admit to the struggle. It was definitely a huge struggle for me at that time. It was a struggle not having a record out, not being played on radio, and not doing as many shows as I’d like to.

“My family going through things, dealing with eviction notices. I got an eviction notice at my condo. My girl called me and she was upset telling me what happened. I was trying to work it out with the landlord to get an extension and pay everything off.

“We ended up moving out to a townhouse and stayed there for a while. After I stayed there for a while, we ended up moving to an even bigger condo after “Hustle Hard.” I found a way. I don’t make excuses. But these were things I was actually introduced to at a young time in my career.”
