(AllHipHop News) Florida based rapper Ace Hood recently re-released his Starvation series as a BitTorrent Bundle. The package includes 22 hand-picked tracks from Ace's three mixtapes as well as the bonus song "Supposed To Do" featuring Skepta, eight music videos, and a Hood Nation merchandise coupon.
"To me I saw it as an opportunity to do something new and gain a new fan base," Ace Hood tells AllHipHop.com about partnering with BitTorrent for the Best of Starvation Bundle. "It’s an opportunity to expand my brand and get my music out to the masses in a different way."
Ace is also interacting with his followers in another inventive way. The We The Best Music Group representative is giving aspiring artists a chance to appear on the opening verse of his single "Everyday." Entries for the remix version will be judged by Ace himself.
"I’m looking for hunger. I’m looking for passion. Flows as well," explains the Cash Money Records affiliate. "See who is able to ride the beat right. You know, see who’s able to give it that bounce."
Rappers interested in submitting vocals for the contest must unlock the remix track via the bundle, record a verse, and then upload the mix to the Everyday Remix Soundcloud group. All verses must be uploaded by 12 pm PST on August 11, 2014.
While Ace looks for a guest feature to appear on the "Everyday (Remix)," he is also proud of his recent collaboration with British rapper Skepta. Ace and Skepta's "Supposed To Do" track serves as musical union that expands across the pond.
"I felt like it was right to get down with Sketpa and get London and the UK on that which was big for us. It was a connection," Ace adds. "Because I feel like a lot of people feel a disconnection between the artists in the States and the European artists. I wanted to show them that us doing a feature was possible."
The Best of Starvation bundle does not mean the mixtape series is ending as a trilogy. Ace Hood plans to continue with a part four in the future.
"You can definitely expect a Starvation4," says Ace. "Don’t know when and don’t know the date, but you can definitely expect it."
