Shelah Marie Taught Us An Important Lesson On Acknowledging Your Husband

"I got plaques made for his first two releases since going independent because in this house we don't wait on the validation we want — we give it ourselves."

Celebrity News

Since they began dating, Ace Hood and Shelah Marie have been what the young folks refer to as "couple goals". She's a healing poweress that speaks life into the universe, and he is an independent rapper/yogi who has strayed from a previous image, and currently walks the line of wellness. Their coupledom isn't necessarily a goal in the sense of something that we all wish to be, but more so the fact that they openly put in the work to bettering themselves as a team. They love each other loudly, and they are more than happy to share their experiences and what has worked for them along the way.

This past Christmas was no different, as the couple shared a very personal moment to social media. In a photo uploaded to Instagram, she said:

"When @acehood was last on a major recording label they were excellent about celebrating wins. Ace has so many plaques in the house from that era. Since Ace went independent, he hasn't received any plaques for his projects. Ace is too damn talented not to have his flowers while he can smell them. I got plaques made for his first two releases (Trust The Process 1 & 2) since going independent because in this house we don't wait on the validation we want — we give it ourselves. I love you @acehood."

The plaques show off the millions of streams that each of his projects have accumulated since going independent, to which Hood was moved to tears.

Ace Hood responded to the act of love with a caption of his own:

"Validate yourself, celebrate yourself. I'm Grateful to have a wife who see's me for all that I am. This means the world to me, and furthermore lets me know that I am worthy and capable of all things great. To me this is Freedom, this is legacy. Still Overwhelmed with so many emotions, I love you to life. @theshelahmarie"

After spending almost a decade under DJ Khaled's We The Best Music and Universal Music Group, Ace Hood left the labels behind in 2016 to release music independently. He has since embarked on a journey of self-discovery that led the former athlete to renew his passion for health and fitness, as well as tie the knot with Shelah. Now, at 32, the Hustle Hard rapper has released twenty-one mixtapes and four albums garnering well over 100M streams, his latest being Mr. Hood.

"When I started embarking on my independent career, I said, 'You know what? I need to understand who I am as a person and bring the best version of myself out.' I went on a journey of just trusting the process of understanding who I am, my surroundings, my environment, and doing a lot of deep work behind the scenes."

And Shelah has always been about her husband as she reps and supports his brand, and her own, through various business ventures.

Once our favorite couple, always our favorite couple.
