Ace Hood Drops New B.O.D.Y. Album

“I’m super excited about the project,” Ace Hood said in a recent Instagram video about the release. “I can’t wait to bring this to you guys, so you guys can listen. B.O.D.Y. is build or destroy you. These are concepts that I would allow to build me rather than destroy me. If you appreciated records like “Uncomfortable Truth” and records like “Energy,” then stay tuned, I got more in store for you.”
