For hip hop fans who hear Ace of Spades’ new album for the first time, they’ll be in for quite a surprise. His beats and lyrics are very comparable to that of mainstream artists like Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and J.Cole.
“The vibe of this album is definitely upbeat. My Uncle Chris was very instrumental in helping putting this project together,” stated Ace of Spades. “We are extremely proud of it. This album has actually been a long time coming. We did a couple of EPs leading up to this, but his latest project is really our introduction to the world.”
Ace of Spades and his uncle have been working together since the sudden passing of his father in 2009. At the time of his dad’s death, the talented rapper was still living in New York.
“It was extremely unexpected. One day he was there and the next day I went to wake him up, and he didn’t wake up,” explained Ace of Spades. “I guess he wasn’t feeling too well the day before, and I told him to take tomorrow off from work and I’ll take him to the doctor. I went to wake him up the next day, and he must’ve died in his sleep.”
His Uncle Chris immediately stepped in to help Ace of Spades cope with the loss. Through their bond, they discovered that when put together—they make beautiful music.
As Ace of Spades drops his debut album, he and his uncle are already thinking about the future. When these two work together, they know that great things are bound to happen in the studio.
“We don’t purposely try to go against the grain. We just do what we love. We’re not trying to ride on the coattails of anyone either,” stated Ace of Spades. “Our pure love and understanding of the music industry sets us apart from other independent artists.”
