Where is Ace Hood from? Ace Hood is from Port St. Lucie, Florida, where he was born Antoine McColister on May 11, 1988. Ace Hood was raised in nearby Deerfield Beach, and as a youngster, he harbored dreams of becoming a professional football player. Unfortunately, he suffered a career-ending injury in the 10th grade, and that’s what led him to music. By the time he celebrated his 17th birthday, he’d begun recording tunes for the local Dollaz & Dealz label, and in 2006, he made a splash with “M.O.E.,” short for “Money Over Everything.” The following year, he got his demo in the hands of the influential DJ Khaled, who signed the 19-year-old to his just-launched We the Best Music label. His debut album, “Gutta,” arrived in 2008, reaching No. 36 on the Billboard 200. All three of his subsequent LPs have fared even better, and he’s also issued a string of mixtapes, the most recent of which, “Starvation III,” arrived in January 2014.

Ace Hood’s hometown of St. Lucie, Florida, isn’t exactly known as a hip-hop hotbed, but neither it nor Deerfield Beach is far from Miami, and that’s a town with some serious rap cred. Although Ace Hood has never had a major pop hit, he reached No. 6 on the Rap chart in 2011 with his Chris Brown-assisted smash “Body 2 Body.” That song appears on his third album, 2011’s “Blood Sweat & Tears,” a record that reached No. 8 on the Billboard 200, his highest placement to date.

Fans wondering where Ace Hood is from can learn all about Deerfield Beach, Florida, by visiting the town’s official website. There’s information on beaches and local history, though surprisingly, there’s no photo of Ace Hood on the main page. Given that Ace Hood now records for Cash Money and is emerging as a genuine rap star, the town might want to big-up the rhymer. Then again, maybe not.
