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 Only–exclusive 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 When his football dreams came crashing to a halt after his scholarship to Indiana State was revoked, Pat threw himself into rap music.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 Door, an 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.
