American rapper, Antoine Franklin, better known as Ace Hood received the best Christmas present from his wife in celebration of his success as an independent artiste.
The rapper, over the years received plaques while under different record labels, but ever since he went independent, he stopped getting recognition plaques, so his wife gifted him a custom plaque.
After spending nearly a decade under DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music and Universal Music Group, Ace Hood left the labels behind in 2016.
Ace’s wife, Shelah Marie decided to make his Christmas extra special with her gift.
In an Instagram post, Shelah wrote, “When @acehood was last on a major recording label they were excellent about celebrating wins. Ace has so many plaques in the house from that era. Since Ace went independent, he hasn’t received any plaques for his projects. Ace is too damn talented not to have his flowers while he can smell them.”
She further added, “I got plaques made for his first two releases (Trust The Process 1 & 2) since going independent because in this house we don’t wait on the validation we want — we give it ourselves. I love you.”
