How tall is Ace Hood? Ace Hood is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, according to most websites, and if that’s not quite enough to make him a giant, it might have made him a Giant. That’s because the Florida rapper initially wanted to be a pro football player, and were it not for a 10th grade injury, he might have made his living through sports. Instead, Ace Hood — born Antoine McColister on May 11, 1988, in Port St. Lucie, Florida — turned to hip-hop, and by the time he was 17, he’d begun recording cuts for the local Dollaz & Dealz label. In 2008, he got his demo in the hands of influential Florida rap figure DJ Khaled, and that wound up being his big break. Khaled signed Hood to his We the Best Music imprint, which later landed a distribution deal with Def Jam, and just like that, Hood was walking mighty tall.

Ace Hood’s debut, “Gutta,” dropped in 2008, and while it only reached No. 36 on the Billboard 200, the MC had plenty of reason to hold his head high. It was a No. 2 hit on the Rap chart, and all three of his subsequent full-lengths — “Ruthless,” “Blood, Sweat & Tears,” and “Trials & Tribulations” — have fared better on the pop tally. Hood’s most recent disc came out on Cash Money, which he signed with in 2013, and that means he’s in the company of some of the biggest — though not necessarily tallest — rhymers in the game.

How tall is Ace Hood compared to other famous rap stars? At 5 feet, 9 inches, Ace Hood has a few inches on DJ Khaled, who stands 5 feet, 6 inches, and in a game of b-ball, he’d likely have a slight edge on Eminem and Kanye West, both of whom stand 5 feet, 8 inches tall. He comes up short of guys like Jay Z and Rick Ross, though; they check in at 6 feet, 2 inches, and 6 feet, respectively.
