Rapper Flauce Flips Ace Hood "Hustle Hard" into a Remix About GOD and Kills It



This morning around 4am i decided to check my twitter, a rapper by the name of Flauce sent me music asking me to check it out (yup, i actually listen the new music i get).

I like the Ace Hood song "Hustle Hard" but there are a MILLION unofficial remixes out to it... so when i pressed play and heard the "Hustle Hard" beat come on, i almost pressed STOP but instead i let it play, i'm glad i did... Flauce's remix is the most Original remix of "Hustle Hard" i've heard so far. It's a Gospel remix about GOD that i'd bet if it played in the club people would still party to it like it's the original.

Flauce is a rapper Originally from New Jersey and now lives in North Carolina. Before today i didn't know much of anything about him but after hearing his remix i decided to go do a lil research by pulling up his youtube videos & listening to his mixtape on Datpiff...

A admitted Big L fan, Flauce pays homage to L on the Mixtape in a tribute freestyle. His music is deep, lyrical, emotional & surprisingly very STREET. I was expecting to hear Christian Rap, i do hear mentions of God several times but the mixtape is FAR from Gospel music. Like Tupac, A lot of his songs are inspiring in a way that the streets can relate to. At Certain points in the mixtape i get a flash back to 96' Jay Z.

Listening to his music i feel a connection (that's a good thing). There's something about this guy i like, why have i not heard of him before today? He's definitely talented. I have a feelin about him, so much so i'm still up at 5:30am writing this Blog about him... Check out his "Hustle Hard" remix and definitely take some time to check out his Mixtape on Datpiff called "Take It Personal" accompined by the sharp hands of DJ Skillz... Flauce is Cocoa Approved!!

this is what alot of positive rappers are missing, he has a street edge mixed wth positive words, he can touch the people that need to be touched. rappers who are positive usually dont get no blog love or radio love, i respect that you gave him a chance. BTW, how can i get you some music Miss Cocoa?

I have been listening to Flauce for awhile, dude is nice, and the fact that others can begin to acknowledge him is great. Hip hop needs this. We listen to watered down opinions and half truths everyday,about time some one stepped up and stated something that needs to be heard. I am just happy that it is him. Keep it Pushing, Homie

I grew up with Flauce and consider him a brother to me. He's been featured on my site quite a few times and he hinted to me a few months ago that he may dabble in some gospel rap and how clever did he pull if off! Dude has what it takes and I'm glad people are beginning to become aware of FLAUCE! Let's go!!!

I love it! This will inspire other young artist to put out more songs like this. I pray this remix blows up. Will do my part and share with others.

Been listenin to Flauce for a min n dude got bars. This don't surprise me at all. The rap game coulda been used a guy like this. He not in t for the quick bubble gum buck like these new artists, he as he says on the album takes this thing personal. Flauce is cut from that ol school cloth where uhad to be nice to even pick up a mic. No gimmicks just bars of truth. Cocoa did a nice job describing his the vibe, that Big L / 96 J type flow. Congrats n keep doin ya thing.

I have had the opportunity to travel with Flauce on his road to startem and he is awesome. I watched him put other rappers to shame in battle rap all over the US. Its time for him to Shine and he will.

This remix is the best new music I've heard in a minute. It's street so your normal hip hop head can relate, its inspiring delivering Gospel rap with FIRE, and its lyrical so you can go back and disect it
