Ace Hood, "Go N' Get It"
Two years have passed since Ace Hood was named to XXL magazine's 2009 Freshmen class, and the rapper still has many credits left to go before graduation. Borrowing is certainly not a new concept to hip-hop, but Hood's "Go N' Get It" lacks the originality needed to give the Florida MC his breakout hit. It's one thing for the rapper to recycle Lex Luger's beat from his previous single "Hustle Hard," but appropriating Big Sean's signature phrase "I do it" and Rick Ross' delivery shows that the rapper has yet to stand on his own two feet. "Go N' Get It" demonstrates that Hood might be too heavily influenced by others, even though he has the ability to write powerful, relatable lyrics. It's a trait that separates him from the pack despite his persistent efforts to blend in.
