If you are a fan of Ace Hood's music like I am, then you pretty much know what to expect. You can expect to get some hard hitting smooth rhymes, & this album delivers that yet again while throwing in some topics on social issues like the Trayvon Martin case & stuff like that. I love his style, and this album delivers, so if you are a fan & like his previous albums, you should love this. I highly recommend it!!!!

When I listen to Ace, I just feel like going through the grind and embracing the hustle. I became a fan from Blood, Sweat, Tears and this album is no different! Ace brings it! This album should be called "Trials, Tribulations & Emotions," because I feel it Ace! I FEEL IT!

For everybody out there hustling, embrace the Struggle and listen to ACE! His music definitely inspires and motivates!

Rap music is by far my favorite genre. It's rough, gentle, and very truthful all at the same time. Ace Hood definitely touched many areas of my own personal life with this album. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect is that it's focuses on reality in relation to spirituality!!!

Since the release of his 2011 album Blood, Sweat & Tears, Ace Hood has kept his name out there by releasing four mixtapes (The Statement 2, Starvation, Body Bag Vol. 2 & Starvation 2). During that two year stretch we also seen a lot rappers using his "Hustle Hard" flow. For real I cant even count on one hand of how many people uses that flow now. To his credit, he did get at them on song "Wanna Beez". Now moving along, DJ Khaled moved his label We The Best to Cash Money, so this is Ace's first album under the Cash Money umbrella. So you already know the album budget is gonna be way bigger this time around. This is his most personal album in my opinion. Like on the title track, he talks about his trials and tribulations in the first verse and in the second he talks about how he overcame them. "The Come Up" is about not letting the roadblocks stop you from getting money and taking care of your family. Anthony Hamilton's background vocals makes the song a million times better.

"Hope" is another one of the standout tracks, Lee On The Beats piano laced production works well for the heartfelt song. "Mama" is a dedication to his Mother, it features the legendary Betty Wright. Its a very relatable song because we all wanna make our Mamas proud and we appreciate all the things they do for us. Towards the end of the song Betty Wright takes us to Church for a few minutes when the hand-claps come in on Cardiak and DJ Khaleds soulful beat. "Ryder" featuring Chris Brown is out of place, but I understand the purpose of the song, its most likely gonna be the next single. Since Body 2 Body was a hit, why not make another song for the ladies?

Then we have the heavy bass hitting joints, "We Outchea" featuring Lil Wayne and "Bugatti" featuring Future & Rick Ross. There aren't that many flaws on Trials & Tribulations, we do get some generic songs like "We Them N*****" and "Before The Rollie" featuring Meek Mill. Ace hood goes into full auto tune mode on the atrocious "How I'm Raised", this song would've been better without the auto-tune, leave that to Future and T-Pain who use it way better. For the most part, Ace stuck with the overcoming obstacles theme throughout the album, he also addressed several social issues. I think the problem people have with Ace is that he can be very predictable at times and he doesn't really stand out that much. I enjoyed the album, there were a few songs that were kinda depressing, but nonetheless its a good album.

Ace is developing as an artist. he will only \\\\touch those listeners that understand hood lingo and struggle.. come up from the bottom. not all just bling bling lyrics. tell you some stories about trial and tribulations. I would recommend. listening to it as I type this.

The only good song on this CD is Bugatti...the rest of them suck. Maybe I'm just not into hip hop anymore.
