Southern Rapper, Ace Hood has announced that he has left Def Jam Record and is currently operating under DJ Khaled’s “We The Best Music” imprint. He is now signed to We The Best through Cash Money Records.
In an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club the former Def Jam signee revealed that his three album deal with Death Jam has been satisfied with the releases of Gutta, Ruthless, and Blood, Sweat & Tears. He explained that it was to take his label situation elsewhere, and iterated that he has nothing but love for Def Jam.
“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 is currently getting ready to produce his fourth full featured project, “Trials and Tribulation” which is set to be released this summer.
