Northern Kentucky Emcee ACE was born Austin East in Tyler, Texas on December 10, 1992. ACE moved to Kentucky at a young age, with a strong love for Hip Hop music. At a young age he decided to start venting about his childhood struggles through writing in music/poetry. After signing with a local label in 2010, ACE decided to reform his style and do things his own way. Departing from the label, ACE took time to work on his craft by writing, doing local shows, and experimenting with his style. ACE is making his project debut this summer, with his mixtape "ILL Fated" with celebrity features, and production from DJ Pain 1, who will be hosting the mixtape.
