    From Business School to the Billboard Charts With Rapper Call Me Ace

    Call Me Ace is a rapper who draws a unique line through his artistry, music data and the corporate grind. Born to Jamaican émigrés in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1989, Ace found himself studying Anthropology at Columbia University in New York City 18 years later. At Columbia, he was the Co-Founder and President of the Columbia University Society of Hip-Hop, but after graduating in 2011, he turned to education, working as an operations analyst at Success Academy Charter Schools in New York City before setting his sights on business school. In 2016, Ace graduated with an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, releasing his first EP, Misinterpretations, the same year. As he transitioned from consulting at Deloitte to marketing at Facebook, he continued to release more music that explored his creative- and business-minded personas, eventually hitting the Billboard charts with his March 2019 album Airplane Mode. Today, Ace works on the Creator & Artist Development team at YouTube as the Global Program Manager for Music Label Partnerships, and he just released his new EP, Working From Home.
