5.0 out of 5 stars I guess Pat didn't get the memo! December 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Obviously Project Pat never received the memo that he went to jail, or that it had been nearly 4 years since his last release (Layin the Smack Down) hit stores. He apparently wasn't in attendance at the meeting where it was determined that all new Gangsta Rap had to be the same watered down unauthentic mix of poor rushed production and lack luster lyrical content and flow, and most certainly someone forgot to tell Paul and Juicy that once you win an Oscar and produce for pop acts such as Paris Hilton and Justin Timberlake, your production quality should intuitively decline. Clearly we all believed it to be true with Crunchy Blacs first and last project which, for lack of better words, seemed hurried and lazily put together.
What you get when you insert Project Pats latest album is very reason most southern hip hop heads have been eagerly pacing back and fourth awaiting atonement for the latest rise in snap music and chains hangin' low, which no doubt has gave the New York heads ample ammunition to point the finger at their country cousins. What you get on this album is more than gangsta rap consisting of an avergage MC with beats from 40 different big name producers, all of whom have probably never met the artist a day in their life. What you get with the combination of Pats gritty, yet bouncy and boisterous flow mixed with the production of arguably the most meticulous duo of producers since the Outkast/Goodie Mobb- Organized noise era is fluidity, something sorely lacking in today's age of jigsaw album making where the premiere credo is--"Do whatever that last guy did."
This album is 19 tracks of pure mood music, and if you've yet to cop it, you will know exactly what that means when you do.

Project Pat does it again.........matter of fact DJ Paul and Juicy does it again. First and for most I like to Thank the Super Producers for staying true with their music. After becoming Oscar winners Juicy J said in an interview that this award may open alot more doors for them but it will not change the way they do THEIR music. I wasn't sure after hearing that they were producing songs for Paris Hilton and Justin Timberlake but this ablum reassures everyone that these guy are 15 years strong without losing a step. Project Pat last left us before the mixtape with Layin the Smackdown. Which for me, towards the end it felt like the song were forced out songs because of Pat going to jail. On this one he tells with is his second track that he is not going back to jail and is picking up where he left off. Project Pat is unique and flawless. It will take forever for me to disect every track on Pat's unique versatility (sorry Koopsta Knicca but until you stop using ryhmes you said when you was part of the "6" and putting them out as new songs, you will never be as versatile as Pat or Lord Infamous) and how come Paul and Juicy are so consistant with there production to show the hip hop/rap world that snap music is not what the real south is all about. This album is gritty and a must have for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time! December 5, 2006
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
Well, it's been years upon years that I've been waiting for today, December 5th. I started getting into Project Pat back in 1999-2000. When I started hearing his stuff I found myself wanting more and more. Unfortunately, in 2001 he was arrested and locked up. Layin' Da Smack Down was his last album which was released in 2002.

When I heard Pat was getting out of jail in either 2004 or 2005, I was like alright cool he should have an album out soon. This album has been in the making for years. Goog Googly Moogly and Raised in the Projects are the two singles that have been around for awhile now. Heraing those 2 tracks I knew we were in for a classic when "Crook By Da Book" would be released.

It seemed like I'd read online about the album "Coming Soon" but it never came. It wasn't until last week that I was on the Hypnotize Minds myspace and it said December 5th is the day.

I have had a chance to listen to all the songs. At first I was skeptical of Pat possibly going soft or "mainstream" even since his incarceration. If you are looking for Mainstream this is not it. I love the Underground style, Dirty South music, and this is what Pat gives you every time.

This album is amazing from top to bottom.

My favorites in this order.

1. What Money Do
2. Raised In The Projects
3. You Like
4. Crack A Head
5. Cause I'm a Playa
6. Good Googly Moogly
7. I Ain't Goin Back to Jail
8. How It Goes In The Gutta
9. High Off The Ground
10. Purple
11. Cocaine
11. Tell Tell Tell

I could keep listing them, but you get my point. I have Cocaine at #10, but it's easily good enough to be in the Top 3. That's how good this whole album is.

I'm amazed. I've been playing the whole thing through all day and it just gets better. 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY AMAZING March 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If I could make this 10 stars I would. This is probably the greatest album from not only Pat but from: Project Pat, DJ Paul & Juicy J, and Hypnotize Minds altogether. This is a must buy without a doubt. THERE IS NOT ONE TRACK ON HERE YOU CANNOT BUMP. A CLASSIC FROM START TO FINISH!!! The guest appearances are hot, the beats are hot, the lyrics are fiyah, the entire album will leave a Project Pat fan dead in his tracks. And for yall Paul & J Outro fans with all the yellin and crazyiness like on Most Known Unknown...its got that too :D. Its a crime not to buy this rec. So go out there and cop Pat's best masterpiece yet after not puttin out a rec for 4 years!!! And lets just hope he keeps his promise with track 2 and doesnt go back to jail lol.
