Ace Hood has been relatively quiet recently but after announcing that he’d be dropping a new project this month, the former We The Best artist comes back strong with his new single “To Whom it May Concern.” Serving as the first single to his upcoming mixtape, Trust the Process, Ace Hood fills the fans in on his absence. Addressing the obstacles he’s had to face, it’s a record that sounds like Ace Hood turned a recording booth into a confessional. He wears his heart on his sleeve over the smooth piano based production of Foreign Tech, who was responsible for Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange.” Featuring deeply personal lyrics and piano keys that sound like a new beginning, “To Whom It May Concern” serves as both Ace Hood’s personal exorcism and a PSA to fans who’ve rocked with him from the start. To help him with that goal, Ace enlisted the help of his fellow Floridian, producer Foreign Tech, who’s worked with some of the biggest names in the industry.
“Foreign Tech produced the track,” Ace reveals. “He’s a very creative young producer out of Florida. He produced Bryson Tiller’s ‘Exchange’ record that I liked. Really talented and I think he’s going to be one of the best [producers] in the game.” Trust the Process, due out Aug. 21, will be Ace’s first project since last year’s Starvation 5 mixtape, and it will precede the release of his first album since 2013’s Trials and Tribulations. The mixtapes and subsequent album will be a long time coming for Ace, who’s promising to remain true while taking his art to another level. “Expect nothing but realness, evolution, authenticity and great music from me on this project at the highest of levels,” the rapper says of his next project. “There’s party records, records that are going to connect to the soul and a full body of work that touches on so many relatable emotions that you’ll get lit, laugh, cry and experience good times listening to this. People can also expect to hear me in an elevated way. “Don’t get it wrong, I haven’t changed completely, I’ve just fine tuned who I am a bit. In terms of producers, I worked on the entire project with Foreign Tech. We worked day to day on this project. In terms of other producers and collabs, I have a few things cookin’ that will be revealed on Aug. 21.”
