Hip-Hop juggernaut Ace Hood has announced the first leg of the lineup for his "Hustle Hard" tour in support of his recently released smash third album, Blood, Sweat & Tears. The album, which hit stores on August 9th and debuted at #8 on the Billboard charts, features the hit singles "Hustle Hard," "Body 2 Body" ft. Chris Brown and "Go N Get It," as well as the acclaimed tracks "Lord Knows," "Memory Lane" and "Bitter World." During the course of the tour Ace will also partner with surprise guests for special sets which will be announced on www.hustlehardtour.com and Ace Hood's Twitter account @AceHood.
After being signed to DJ Khaled's We The Best Music Group in 2007, Blood, Sweat & Tears is Ace's third major label release following Gutta (2008) and Ruthless (2009). Fresh off of the release of his sophomore set, Ace took some time off, dealing with a series of challenging personal issues that infused him with an even stronger desire to succeed. The result of his strife and his labor is what many consider to be one of the top rap albums of 2011, a gut wrenching collection of personal struggle and never ending hustle aptly named Blood, Sweat & Tears.
Over the course of the summer, fueled by the success of his chart topping single "Hustle Hard," Ace performed regularly, including appearances during spot dates on Lil' Wayne's "I Am Still Music" tour, but will now be embarking on a headlining solo tour in support of the new album.
"I'm extremely excited about the 'Hustle Hard' tour," said Ace Hood. "I was lucky enough to do some big shows over the summer and the love from the fans was overwhelming. They wanted more so we had to give it to them and will be hitting the road throughout the fall sharing this music."
After kicking off in Toronto, Canada, the "Hustle Hard" tour (www.hustlerhardtour.com) will travel around the US before a series of dates in Japan. Preliminary US performances include:
