Making money would be so much easier if our lives were scored by a constant loop of hustler music. Unfortunately, Rick Ross is nowhere to be found when you’re scrubbing tables on a Friday night trying to pay the bills. Nevertheless, Ace Hood brings us back to this comforting fantasy on his latest single Hustle Hard. Producer Lex Luger abuses the 808 drum in this glittery, synth driven beat while Ace spits about hustlin’ when times are tough. Employing his trademark start-stop flow, the Florida emcee delivers a typically aggressive verse, threatening those who get in the way of his hustlin’: “Load it up and I cock it, send about a couple off in yo’ noggin.” Following Ace is Swizz Beats, who must’ve snuck into the booth without anybody noticing again (We Keep It Rockin déjà vu) to contribute a much un-needed verse. There’s nothing groundbreaking here. We’ve heard Ace much stronger and, as far as Swizz…someone needs to have a heart to heart with him about his rapping abilities. Will next week’s edition of Swizz’ weekly Monster Mondays Series work better? We’ll find out soon enough.
