At first glance, ACE Primo can be mistaken for a young-looking Lil Wayne. They both share a Southern swag thanks to his North Carolina upbringing. And, similar to the back-in-the-day Weezy, he’s got the long-hair-don’t-care braids. But, most importantly, it’s the teen’s talent which has attracted the likes of Geechi Suede of Camp Lo who gave him his first shot in the studio.
The 15-year-old, who started actively pursuing rap in 2007, caught the attention of super-producer Rodney Jerkins who ultimately signed the teen MC to Dark Child Records. Just because ACE is signed doesn’t mean that Young Money can’t partner up with Dark Child and scoop the young spitter. Considering the Charlotte native’s delivery, style, and flow reminded us a bit of Young Money’s general, it seems he could fit into the YM family easily.
At the moment there doesn’t seem to be any Young Money/Cash Money affiliation, but bheck out Ace Primo’s videos and let us know what you think. Should ACE Primo be Young Money’s next signee? Share your thoughts in the comment section. —Nicole LoPresti
