Memphis native Pat packs more drug references into his lyrics than a pharmacology text — but leaves room for a healthy dose of humor. On the infectious single ”Chickenhead,” he swipes at opportunistic women while cohorts cluck in the background. ”Whole Lotta W**d” is an unprintable cover of purple dinosaur Barney’s ”I Love You” jingle. Along with fellow rapping Southerners Nelly and Mystikal, Pat offers hope that the South will rhyme again.
