The pride and joy of North Memphis, Project Pat, returns to the rap game with his new album Loud Pack on July 19, his first since 2009’s Real Recognize Real. To kick things off in their most natural of ways, Pat tags frequent co-conspirators DJ Paul and Juicy J to handle the work behind the boards while he delivers in only a way Pat can. At this point, I’m not even expecting to hear the anthems and cult classics they generated back when I was in high school. I’m not expecting pure recycle bin material either, but times changes and at least these guys are still making music together. Consistency is a rarity in the music industry.
In the meantime, revisiting Ghetty Green and Mista Don’t Play have just jumped up a few notches on my priority list. Pre-order Pat’s new album here.
