Project Pat: "Miami Is Where I Get the Bean From," Performing Live at EVE

Crunk, where'd it come from?

You'd be a fool to believe that it's a modern phenomenon.

In fact, scripture says that God herself was so tired of building an entire planet in just six days that she spent the seventh "Smokin' Out" with Project Pat and learning 'bout crunk music. Or something along those lines.

Yes, it's that old.

And on Friday, January 18, you too can "Smoke and Get High" with Pat as he takes over EVE and slaps Miami with a lesson in Tennessee-bred southern hip-hop.

Pat's forthcoming mixtape, Cheez N Dope, drops later this week, but the album's already produced several monsters.

"I Ain't Seen Shit," for example, is an ode to the street hustle and a reminder to would-be snitches that "your ass [will be found] in a ditch" if you're caught squealing.

"Cali is where I get my green from/Texas is when I get my lean from/Miami is where I get the bean from/And if you get caught, I don't know where they came from."

Neither do we, officer.

Project Pat. Friday, January 18. EVE Nightclub, 1306 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The show starts at 10 p.m. Ages 21 and up. Call 305-995-5050 or visit
