On this day, May 11, in hip-hop history…

1988: Ace Hood is turning 25 today.

The 2009 XXL Freshman has seen much success since signing with DJ Khaled’s We The Best imprint. That affiliation with We The Best has received support from Cash Money. Ace has been involved in many guest appearances on DJ Khaled’s posse cuts including the remix to “Bitches & Bottles (Let’s Get It Started). He has recently been in the spotlight again for his street single “Bugatti,” which is currently No. 38 on the Billboard Hot 100.

A few days ago, Ace released the “Bugatti (Remix)” that had guest appearances from Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Meek Mill, French Montana, 2 Chainz and Birdman. Now, the single should be ringing off in the streets awhile longer. His fourth studio album, Trials & Tribulations, is scheduled for release on July 16.
