Bamboo Miami Beach: Most of the talent, whether it be DJ’s, rappers or pop artists, that make their way onto The Local Miami, had planned on being in the music industry most, if not all, of their lives. However this time we have an exception – Ace Hood. Born Antoine McColister, Ace Hood was a rising football star at his high school with hopes of playing in college, and presumably, the NFL. However an injury in the 10th grade left him with the unfortunate realization that football wasn’t going to be a part of his big plan. But being a problem solver, Hood figured out a way to make it big, even without the NFL…music.
Ace Hood got his big break back in 2007 after meeting hip-hop heavyweight DJ Khaled outside of Miami radio station 99 Jamz. He eventually signed with Khaled’s label, “We The Best” as well as Cash Money Records and Republic. Now with 4 studio albums out on shelves as well as quite a few mixtapes and some BIG hits such as Bugatti, Hustle Hard and Go N Get It, it seems as if Ace Hood has certainly achieved the successes, and riches, he wanted to achieve being a professional football player.
On Sunday, June 1st, Ace Hood will be hosting a special edition of Prestige Sundays at Bamboo Miami Beach. Young Money/Cash Money Records member DJ Efeezy will be in the house on the 1’s and 2’s along with DJ A-N-D & DJ Kootz. (We’ve also heard Juvenile, yes that Juvenile, will also be at the event with Ace Hood, but we haven’t been able to confirm it.) Tickets are just $20 for the ladies and $30 for the gentlemen, which can be purchased by CLICKING HERE. For VIP information, please call 305-904-5909. This event is 21+. Doors open at 11pm.
