Ace Hood has confirmed his departure from Def Jam and is currently with DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music via Cash Money Records.
During an interview with Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, the Southern rapper said that he signed a three-album deal with Def Jam at the onset of his career. After fulfilling his contract with Gutta, Ruthless and Blood, Sweat & Tears, Ace explained that he wanted to take his label situation elsewhere and that he has nothing but love for his former imprint.
“The situation was over with Def Jam. What I have with them? I had three albums with them. My situation with them was up,” he said. “We chose to take the label situation to another place, to another home. It’s no knock to Def Jam, shout out to Def Jam. I will always be forever grateful to Def Jam for supporting my career and being there. I’m definitely a lot more happy with the situation I got now, in all honesty, because I’m able to do me. There’s no pressure. Nobody’s calling me, forcing an album on me or forcing this on me. It’s what’s your vision? What do you want to do? We’re willing to do what you want to do.”
Ace, who recently released his single “Bugatti” featuring Rick Ross and Future, debuted in 2008 withGutta, which entered the charts at No. 36 with 25,000 copies sold. The following year, he droppedRuthless, which bowed at No. 23, and in 2011, he released Blood, Sweat & Tears that topped at No. 8 with 26,000 copies sold. He is currently gearing up for his fourth album Trials & Tribulations, releasing this summer.
