Project Pat (born February 8, 1973) is the stage name of an American Dirty South hip hop rapper Patrick Houston, hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.
Older brother to fellow rapper and co-founder of the Three 6 Mafia collective Juicy J, despite never being a member of the group, Project Pat used this affiliation to increase his exposure both locally and nationally. The rapper appeared on the Three 6 Mafia album “Crazyndalazday” in 1998 and Indo G’s full-length “Angel Dust” the same year. In 1999 Project Pat issued his debut studio album “Ghetty Green” on Hypnotize Minds/Loud Records introducing the rapper's songwriting and delivery to the Dirty South scene. A year later his follow-up album “Murderers & Robbers” was released independently on Hypnotize Minds, which further lay the groundwork for a Project Pat breakthrough.
The rapper subsequently contributed to the Three 6 Mafia single “Sippin’ on Some Syrup” in 2000, which later became a smash hit single, propelling Project Pat to Dirty South stardom. With the increased exposure the rapper released the single “Chickenhead” featuring Three 6 Mafia member La’ Chat, which earned anthem status in America’s south. On top of promoting his single, Pat’s newfound popularity also aided his third full-length album “Mista Don’t Play: Everythangs Workin” upon release in February 2001. The breakthrough record peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, No. 2 on the U.S. Hip-Hop/R&B chart, and went on to sell over a million copies.
Project Pat’s enjoyment of this success was cut short when he violated his parole and was pulled over for speeding with a pair of revolvers in his vehicle. In March 2001 the rapper was incarcerated in F.C.I. Greenville Illinois Federal Prison with a sentence that lasted until August 2005. During this time his label Hypnotize Records delayed the release of his third album “Layin’ da Smack Down” until August 2002, after which he released the mixtape “Mix Tape: The Appeal - Project Pat” in November 2003. In anticipation of his release from prison Pat released the subsequent mixtape “Gangsta Grillz, Vol. 15: The Welcome Home Party” in February 2006.
Following his time served, Project Pat released the studio album “Crook by da Book: The Fed Story” in December 2006, followed a year later by “Walkin’ Bank Roll” in October 2007. His sixth full-length “Real Recognize Real” marked his debut release for Asylum Records, led by the single “Keep It Hood” featuring OJ da Juiceman. The release was followed by a series of mixtapes with younger brother Juicy J entitled “Play me Some Pimpin' (1&2)” and “Cut Throat (1&2)”. The 2011 album “Loud Pack” arrived in 2011 charting at No. 44 on the U.S. Hip-Hop/R&B Chart. A collaborative album alongside Nasty Mane was issued by Money Train Management in October 2012, followed by Project Pat’s three “Cheez N Dope” mixtapes in 2013 and 2014.
