‘Call Me Ace’ is an Ivy league American rapper who provides an old-school lyrical spirit to today’s genre-breaking musical climate.
From Columbia graduate to Bay area hip-hop artist, ‘Call Me Ace’, formerly known as Anthony Patterson, is the living embodiment of a full deck; working at YouTube headquarters by day and free-styling verses by night.
Currently locked in Ace’s rhythmic state of flow, this rapper by nature writes and manipulates verses alongside genre-infused melodies!
This album is a special one. From me to you. Enjoy. 🙏🏾https://t.co/P3ERcJ6yeS

Earlier this year in February, Ace released his second studio album “Out of Office!” The project navigates a life in which achieving goals and pursuing dreams demands focus and consistency.
The artist illustrates the reality of living a multi-purposed existence, unravelling the ability to balance an ever-changing routine whilst remaining self-aware.
The raw verses within the album mirror the musicality that was present in the 2000s; the art of freestyling poetically on an instrumental layered with samples.
Nonetheless, this Billboard charting chameleon has the ability to create cross-culturally influenced artistry, evident within his bonus track “Flow State” featuring Shy’an G. Blending both the old school and the new is an art-form and Ace’s recent musical endeavours highlight just that!

Ace revels in his prospects as a first-generation Jamaican-American and has cultivated referenced genres within his sound such as: Cuban, Blues, Jazz, Dancehall and Afro-beat alongside Ethiopian elements.
Raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Ace’s iconic influences include the likes of Ludacris, Eminem and Busta Rhymes! His poetic lyricism is nothing less than a tribute to the sound of those who inspired him throughout his upbringing.
Tracks such as “Love Goals” and “Tesla” further highlight Ace’s ability to ride a beat with lyrical precision. More importantly, the words written by this self-reflective artist showcases the mindset of a content and hard-working individual.
