“He’s subtly melodic and catchy even outside of the hook. He does the beat justice by making what he grew up with into something new.” – Pitchfork
“”Big Business is the #18 Best Rap Song of 2021–If “Big Business” is any indication, Trapland Pat may well become South Florida’s next rap auteur. In less than two minutes, he deftly connects Broward County’s disparate styles, vibrating at his own zany frequency.” – Passion Of The Weiss
“10 New Miami Rappers To Watch…Trapland Pat is unlike any other act to come out of South Florida. Since 2019, Pat has consistently delivered grimy bars and smooth cadences over an array of trap beats. Over the past three years, the Deerfield Beach native has been feeding his growing fanbase with singles like “Emergency” and “Dealings,” along with four projects: Exit 41, Pak Man, Interstate Baby, and 2020 Vision. (The last two albums were released via Fredo Bang’s imprint Bang Biz Productions/Create Music Group.) In 2021, Trapland Pat dropped his latest project, Thru Da Door, via Bang Biz, featuring collaborations with Kuttem Reese and Members Only rapper Kid Trunks. He’s still pushing his latest single, ‘Boondocks,”‘which dropped last month. However, on Instagram, Pat celebrated the anniversary of his song ‘Big Business’ and teased a potential remix coming later this year.” – Miami New Times
“Over the course of the last few weeks perhaps no one else has hit the scene as hard as Pat…The Florida rapper raps with wide-eyed astonishment, seemingly at his own bars sometimes which become as animated as his facial expressions. To be honest, the sheer confidence Trapland Pat employs on the track here just makes you want to pay attention or risk missing out on something.” – ELEVATOR
“Trapland Pat makes pretty music.” – Stereogum
Busting out of Broward with tight rhymes and a million watt smile, Deerfield Beach rapper Trapland Pat is turning heads with his hard-hitting rap tunes. Ready to serve another plate of refined and rhythmic street music, Pat prepares Trapnificent, his next project, out June 9th. Spanning 18 tracks, the new project emphasizes Pat’s deep musicality, evident in the lilting flows that make his tracks memorable. A former Division I football recruit, Pat applies an athlete’s mindset to his craft, using discipline and repetition to add new dimensions to his game. In Trapnificent, the former choir kid dedicated time and energy into making his hooks pop, studying the melodic mastery of R&B greats and incorporating their tricks into his own songs. Lyrically, the South Florida rapper digs deeper than ever on his new tape, recounting the rough circumstances of his upbringing on emotional tracks like “Stressed” and the recent single “Losses.”
“I feel like I use the right words to get people to picture what I’m saying, even if they haven’t been through it first hand,” says Trapland Pat.
The follow-up to last year’s Pitchfork-acclaimed Thru Da Door, the upcoming Trapnificent is home to standout singles like the joyful “Trap Dance” and the sinister “D.O.A.” Pat taps frequent collaborator PepperJack Zoe, who produced his breakout hit “Big Business,” to handle the bulk of the production, his creeping piano-led beats providing grounding for Pat’s larger-than-life bars and hummable melodies. Trapnificent rolls out the red carpet for a tasteful selection of guests, including NYC Winners Circle maestro Mozzy, Fredo Bang, who signed Pat to his imprint Bang Biz and appears twice on the tape, Winners Circle maestro Eli Fross, and most notably, Rick Ross, who gives Pat his blessing on the epic “Big Business (Remix).” Featuring an additional appearance from BIG30, Trapnificent releases this Thursdayvia Bang Biz./Alamo Records.
Ahead of the tape, Pat shows off his athletic rhyming ability in “Astronaut Status,” a new anthem for the trappers, which hits DSPs tomorrow. Blessed with a beat the blends atmospheric synths and chirruping choirs, Pat connects with his Bang Biz label boss Fredo Bang to stunt on his trap star status. While Fredo comes through with his trademark soulfulness, Pat rhymes with a simmering tension, never raising his voice, but always making clear that he isn’t one to be taken lightly: “I really brought up all you kids, it’s like an orphanage,” spits Pat. In the video, the bottom-of-the-map duo show off their souped-up sports cars, hit Pat’s trademark Trap Dance, and mob with the locals at a Florida gas station.
Ready to bring his searing street raps to a larger audience, Trapland Pat has the goods to be Broward County’s next big star. It’s about to be a Trapnificent summer.
