Ace Hood

In October 2013, Ace Hood was tapped to perform at Syracuse University's Orange Madness, which is an event for their basketball team. However, leading up to the event, the Florida MC's show was canceled, and the school's athletic department released this statement: "To ensure that Orange Madness is truly a family experience, the artist Ace Hood will not be part of the event. After a review of the overall program, we share concerns about the appropriateness of the act. Although he is popular with many, we respectfully have decided to not include this performance in the Orange Madness festivities."
