Where else would Ace Hood shoot the video to a strip club anthem but in a strip club itself? The We The Best franchise player took to Miami's G-Five to "bring the money home" to the tune of Starvation favorite "We On." Here's to a good weekend!

R. Kelly, you've made good music for decades. Key word: decades. Can't we just keep getting tracks like "Share My Love" instead of these attempts to hold on to the fountain of youth? No. Alright.
Kels premiered the single "It's On" a matter of minutes ago, and just like that we have the video to the Ace Hood and DJ Khaled featured record. Hit up the comments with your thoughts below, and hit the jump to download the track.

How did this collaboration come about? I guess Birdman and Mack Maine saw how popular Kendrick Lamar has become (just like Drake did) and reached out. Watch below as he leads off with an insane verse and then hands it off to Ace Hood, and the two Cash Money/Young Money honchos.

My mind's still blown about Jadakiss being able to grow hair on his head, but his mixtape Consignment is the real story here. Think of everybody in rap right now that's hot in Hip Hop and there's a good chance they're on this tape. Jadakiss alone should be enough for you to check this one out.

Fix the side eyes, Gangstas. I know Talib Kweli and Ace Hood on a track isn't something you probably ever saw coming, but I think that's a great thing. Stream "Let 'Em In" from Talib's We Run This, Vol. 7 below, and be sure to pick the project up on iTunes now.

Ace Hood has proven that he's not your average trap rapper. Although he may make generic sounding tracks from time to time, his lyrics have always seemed to stand out because of how real he gets on his music. Starvation is a continuation of the Miami rapper's growth and shows off his darker side. Featured among the mixtape are Game, Kevin Cossom and more.

Ace Hood continues to impress as the release of his upcoming mixtape Starvation nears. He links up with West Coast vet Game on "Different People," a nice change from Ace Hood's usual sound. Can't wait to hear the whole project because it's sounding good so far!

Dallas rapper Dorrough never disappoints with club music and I think he's got another one on the remix to "That Lowend," which features production from Jahlil Beats and sixteens from Ace Hood, Nipsey Hussle and Yo Gotti. Dorrough's DJ Ill Will hosted mixtape Highlights drops in exactly one week!

MMG representative Gunplay serves up the prequel to his mixtape Bogota with Bogota Rich, a collection of freestyles and original tracks. I'm still getting a feel for the Miami rapper so I've got no opinion on the tape as of yet. If you do, hit up the comments and let me know!

Ace Hood shows off his darker side in the music video to "Hallucinations," the lead single from his Starvation mixtape. I appreciate Ace for showcasing his versatility on this one, so I'm looking forward to the tape.

Bow Wow's Underrated album has been pushed back yet again to April 10th, but I think it's a smart move since his single "Sweat" hasn't made a strong impact commercially. The album's second single "We Going Hard" featuring Ace Hood may do the trick. Listen to the Cardiak produced track below and hit up the comments with your opinions!
