Ace Hood sits down for an interview with DJ Skee and touches on his recent watch fiasco during a performance at the BET Awards pre-show in Los Angeles. The We The Best Music Group and Cash Money signee dropped the news to Skee that after his Rolex bezel broke and found its way onto the ground during the live broadcast, he had no choice but to sever ties with his jeweler. Ace also shares with listeners some of the features they can look forward to hearing on his upcoming Trials & Tribulations LP which is set to release on July 16. Hood points out he wanted to keep his story personal and tell it the best way he knows so he enlisted the help of only a select few such as Betty Wright, Anthony Hamilton and Chris Brown. With the objective being to deliver music that can stand the test of time, Ace explains to Skee that fans can expect new music with plenty of substance.
