Dreams do come true, just ask Ace Hood. The 'Hustle Hard' emcee has been grinding steadily for a number of years under the tutelage of DJ Khaled in preparation for his debut LP 'Blood, Sweat & Tears,' which hits stores Aug. 9.

But first, he gives us a little taste of what he's bringing with his reworking of Drake's haunting ballad, 'Dreams Money Can Buy.'

The track itself knocks hard and the explicit chorus fits perfectly with Hood's confident attitude and gruff rhymes. "Do you remember me? / Nah, probably not / Funny how the game change when you at the top," he spits.

Elsewhere, the Florida rapper brags about his new reality -- fame, women and money. And after blazing the stage at the 2011 BET Awards last June, Hood warns he might even increase his fee for guest verses on a track.

Near the end of the song, Hood comes back down to earth and remembers that he still has a long journey ahead of him. He raps, "I'm still paying my dues / Still humble nothin' changed / With somethin' to prove."

If you are still sleeping on Ace Hood it's time to wake up. The young man is about to muscle his way in the rap game and he's taking no prisoners. Hustle, young man, hustle.
