Over the last few years, Ace Hood‘s voice has been heard loud and clear discussing his feelings surrounding some of the most controversial issues in America. And now when it seems social tension has reached its peak, Hood just can’t deal with the overwhelming “Pain”.
While this brand new track from Hood is an obvious response to the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, “Pain” speaks on much more than just these issues. Ace shies away from nothing on “Pain” as he clearly wants everyone to know exactly what he’s thinking on these polarizing topics.

Besides the head-scratching absurdity which was DJ Khaled‘s dialogue in the original “Hold You Down” music video, the rest of the R&B star-studded track was spot on. But as with any track which takes off for Khaled, a remix is always waiting.
After having four of the hottest crooners in the game grace the original, the “Hold You Down (Remix)” is all about the MC’s. And while Rick Ross, Ace Hood and Fabolous provide verses for the track, it is Usher’s brand new chorus which shines through on the “Hold You Down (Remix)”.

Trey Songz prided himself on his taste for international women on Trigga. Now it seems like his preferences have been adopted by Ace Hood who has become a big fan of “Dat Foreign” as well.
