Brooklyn hip-hop artist HDBeenDope and multi-platinum producer, Earl On The Beat announced the release of their forthcoming joint projectSide A: The Preface, that includes collaborations with Roc Nation artist Maeta and Landstrip Chip.  

In support of the release, HD also dropped a brand-new music video for “Hold It Down (Feat. Landstrip Chip).” Directed by HDBeenDope, the video story tells the theme of “holding it down” through luxurious shopping expeditions with a group of leading ladies before venturing down a boulevard with the top down. The music video closes with colorful visuals, scenic sunset balcony views, blended with a sweet moment between HD and his love interest.

“This project was about getting uncomfortable,” said HDBeenDope. “L.A.B.B. (Learn And Become Better) is the motto, which is ultimately about growth. It’s in play in my everyday life and especially with this project. Locking in with a producer was different as I’m used to doing everything myself. Earl’s sonics forced me outside of my normal approach to making music and I thank him for that.” 

The highly-anticipated project features previously released standout single “ReallyMite,” which HD recently performed on VEVO CTRL Live Session. The release of Side A: The Preface serves as the beginning of a momentous month for HD, chock-full of marquee performances on some of the biggest stages across the country, like Rolling Loud New York slatedfor the end of October. HD’s highly-anticipated live performance later this month marks the rapper’s latest milestone act since wrapping up his sweeping college tour covering Richmond University, The College of New Jersey, Denison University, The College of Wooster and many more.  

“HD is really talented and we have similar working styles which made it easy for us to collab,” said Earl On The Beat.

Side A: The Preface is the multi-faceted powerhouse’s first release since he dropped his second project BrokeN Dreams in 2020, followed by the song “Top,” featured in Madden NFL 21. The project showcased his signature storytelling style while blending the classic, East Coast sound with a more minimalist trap approach. The project also featured appearances from Rodes Rollins, Mayila and Maeta, as well as the fan-favorite single “Die With Me,” cultivating critical acclaim from HYPeBEAST, DJBooth, XXL and more.  

Over the course of 2019, he released a series of one-off singles including “Cayman,” “Rev Run,” and the massive hit “BYRD,” a no-holds-barred trap-influenced song that’s earned over 23 million streams and views to date and also featured in Madden NFL 21

Trapland Pat Shares Live Performance of New Song “Cappin”

Published

By

With his self-assured intensity and versatile rhythmic dexterity, Trapland Pat is quickly moving up the ranks of rap stardom. Offering a taste of his candid capabilities, Pat shares his 4 Shooters Onlyexclusive live performance of “Cappin,” the latest glimpse into his upcoming project, Trapnificent, coming soon via Bang Biz Ent./Alamo Records.

Reconnecting with frequent collaborator PepperJack Zoe, who produced recent singles like “Losses” and “Trap Dance,” the track finds Pat setting the record straight on his recent success and how the money didn’t change him half as much as it did the clout chasers that now surround him. Yet, with his undeniable appeal and the talent to back it up, Pat is keenly aware of his strengths as well as his value: “They don’t see the pain from this s***, just the glory/Drew this up from scratch, I get to venting ‘bout my story/Engineers feel my pain, that’s why they all tryna record me/My mouth costs your life, think twice, could you afford me?” Shot on the streets of Miami and showing off Pat’s wide-eyed charisma, ”Cappin” arrives as part of 4 Shooters Only’s “From The Block” series.

Raised in a Haitian household in Deerfield Beach, FL, Trapland Pat took it upon himself to escape his rough circumstances by any means necessary. When his football dreams came crashing to a halt after his scholarship to Indiana State was revoked, Pat threw himself into rap music. Inspired by his brother’s habit of freestyling, Pat realized he had serious talent, and spent his spare time refining his wordplay and songwriting. He made a name for himself in the south with mixtapes like Exit 41 and Pak Man, eventually earning the attention of Fredo Bang, who signed him to his Bang Biz imprint, in partnership with Alamo Records.

2021 was a huge year for the young rapper, heralded by his single Big Business.” Dominated by a simple, but infectious piano riff, “Big Business” showcased the rapper’s rare charisma, generating over 5 million combined streams and earning praise from Passion of the Weiss, who placed the song at #18 on its list of Best Rap Songs of 2021. “Big Business” was the centerpiece of the Pitchfork-acclaimed Thru The Dooran accomplished 13-track mixtape with appearances from fellow Floridians Kid Trunks and Kuttem Reese.

As Trapland Pat looks to take his searing street raps to a larger audience with the upcoming Trapnificent, stay tuned for much more music from the young rapper, and don’t dare doubt his determination to succeed.
