Originating from Memphis, TN, Project Pat began his career by making appearances on his brother Juicy J & DJ Paul’s early releases. After serving several years in prison for robbery charges and disappearing from recording, he re-emerged in 1999 with the solo album, ‘Ghetty Green‘, which was released on Juicy J’s Hypnotize Minds label. He then became an unofficial member of Juicy & Paul’s newly established group Three 6 Mafia; and first gained mainstream attention when he provided the hook for the group’s hit single “Sippin’ On Some Syrup“.
Project Pat released his breakthrough second studio album ‘Mista Don’t Play: Everythangs Workin‘ (which went Platinum) and the projects single’s “Chickenhead” & “Don’t Save Her” gained heavy national radio airplay and became staples on BET & MTV. Shortly after the release of ‘Mista Don’t Play‘, Pat was charged with a parole violation & began a four-year prison sentence after illegal guns were discovered in his car during a traffic stop.
After his release from prison in 2005, Pat released his highly-anticipated ‘Crook By Da Book: The Fed Story‘ album and aided by the first single “Good Googly Moogly” featuring DJ Paul & Juicy J made an immediate impact on the Billboard charts by selling 40,000 copies in its first week.
After Pat released ‘Crook By Da Book‘, he secured a release from Columbia Records & signed with E1 Music to release his fifth studio album ‘Walkin’ Bank Roll‘ (which debuted at #45 on the Billboard 200) and his sixth studio album, ‘Real Recognize Real‘ was his first release for Asylum Records and it included his hit single “Keep It Hood” featuring OJ Da Juiceman and it debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Rap Chart.
In 2015, Project Pat released ‘Mista Don’t Play 2‘ in a joint deal with Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang Entertainment, which featured appearances from Khalifa, Wale, Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, the late Doe B, & production from Mike WiLL Made It.
Over the last few years, Project Pat has stayed busy by contributing to high profile releases from Juicy J (‘Stay Trippy‘), Rick Ross (‘Hood Billionaire‘), & Wiz Khalifa (‘Blacc Hollywood‘).
