Ace Hood Was "Shocked" His Watch Fell Apart At BET Awards
Ace Hood says he fired his jeweler after his bezel fell off during an on-camera interview at the red carpet of the 2013 BET Awards.
Ace Hood probably wanted people to look at his watch. But the Florida rapper likely didn't want his timepiece to garner the type of attention it did on Sunday (June 30).
When Ace Hood touched his timepiece while being interviewed by Bow Wow on the red carpet at the 2013 BET Awards, the bezel fell off. The rapper says he was stunned. "When you spend so much money on a watch, certain things are not supposed to happen," Ace Hood says during an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106. "My jeweler, I definitely had to fire the jeweler. He going through it, man."
The "Bugatti" rapper says during the Power 106 interview that he couldn't believe what was happening while he was talking to Bow Wow, especially given how much the timepiece cost. "I spent $60,000 on that watch, man," Ace Hood says. "I was just as shocked as everybody else was when it did happen. It never happened to any of my other watches or anything. I looked up. I ain't even know what it was. I figured it was my bracelet. It wasn't no thing, though."
As he was realizing what was happening on the red carpet, Ace Hood says he had a conversation with himself regarding his watch. "For it to happen right then in that moment, I was like, 'You could have happened anywhere else. I just performed. I just ripped down the stage, everything. But you chose to let it be there,'" Ace Hood says. "That's how I know the Devil be working."
Even though Ace Hood says he knows people were making fun of him because of the incident, he says it just makes for a good story. "It's no biggie to me," says Ace Hood, whose Trials & Tribulations album is slated for a July 16 release date. "It ain't even that serious...Things happen, man. We all got stories...This'll be a story that we'll always remember forever."
