Ace Hood got the best Christmas gift any independent artist could ask for.
On Friday (Dec. 25), the Broward County native unwrapped his Christmas gifts and received two commemorative plaques to celebrate his recent success as a fully independent artist. One plaque is dedicated to his 2017 album Trust the Process, which has garnered over 100,000,00 streams, and the other is dedicated to Trust the Process II: Undefeated, which accrued over 78,000,00 streams. Ace couldn’t help but shed some tears as he gazed at the plaques he deserves. His wife, Shelah Marie, captured the touching moment and posted it to her Instagram timeline.
After spending nearly a decade releasing music under DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music and Universal Music Group, Ace Hood left the labels behind in 2016 to release music independently. Since then, the “Cash Flow” rapper dropped a handful of projects including Starvation 5, Body Bag 4, and Body Bag 5 via his Hood Nation imprint and Empire Records. On Christmas Day, Ace’s wife made sure the indie rapper knows that his music is appreciated on every level.
“I got plaques made for his first two releases (Trust The Process 1 & 2) since going independent because in this house we don’t wait on the validation we want — we give it ourselves. I love you @acehood,” Shelah wrote in her caption.
