Trial & Tribulations, indeed. Ace Hood changes diapers, cries and talks about the moment he had to take his baby off life support in a new promo for Trial & Tribulations, his debut LP with YMCMB. The five-and-a-half-minute video is a huge departure from the flashy "Bugatti" lifestyle he raps about on his ubiquitous recent single featuring Future and Rick Ross.
The Edgar Esteves-directed clip shows a side of the Florida-bred rapper people might not know about, where he preaches the importance of taking care of one another, and the day he realized he was going to have to step up to the plate to support his family. If you're not teary-eyed by the end, you're at least hoping the Gutta spitter ends up owning and driving that Bugatti he raps about into a Southern coast sunset someday.
Trial & Tribulations, Ace's fourth album, drops this summer on July 16. To hold you over until then, check out his recent 19-track Starvation II mixtape.
