On the heels of Loud Pack in 2011 and the Belly on Full mixtape with Nasty Mane earlier this year, Memphis rap icon Project Pat is preparing for the October 2, 2012, release Belly On Full Part 2 via his own Money Train Management, in conjunction with Select-O-Hits.
The lead single "P.O.L.O (Horse Power)" features Juicy J, and is currently in rotation with DJs across the country.
Described as an all-around street album with something for everyone, the title Belly On Full 2 refers to getting money and trying to stay up. With more features from returning Belly On Full Part 1 cohort Nasty Mane and Atlanta's Gorilla Zoe, Belly On Full 2 aims to capture Pat's devoted fan base along with recognizing the growing "Trippy" movement.
From his early work with Three Six Mafia to album projects with with Koch and Asylum, Project Pat has secured himself a place as one of the most unique personalities in the music business. In July 2012, Pat appeared on Wiz Khalifa's overnight fan favorite "Still Got It", further confirming his ability to move with the times.
"I've been fortunate enough to maintain a career and produce music that people love for over a decade now," says Project Pat. "I feel like in this digital era there are opportunities at every turn to reach new ears, and I hope that Belly On Full 2 continues my reputation for giving the people what they want."

Brooklyn lyricist Stixx is enjoying life in his new visual for "Video Games" - but too bad his leading lady doesn't see things the same way! If you've ever gotten caught up playing games (even metaphorically), this could be YOU!
