Patrick Houston (born February 8, 1973), better known by his stage name Project Pat, is an American rapper and actor from Memphis, Tennessee. He is the older brother of rapper Juicy J, and frequently collaborates with Three Six Mafia. His rap name references the fact that he is from the Projects— more formally know as Public Housing—followed by his real name, Pat.
Project released his first studio album, Ghetty Green in 1999 after being released from prison, on his brother’s Hypnotize Minds record label. In the year 2000, as Three 6 Mafia released their fourth studio album – When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1 – Project first gained mainstream attention by providing the hook for the song Sippin' on Some Syrup. Ghetty Green was then followed by 7 more albums, the last of which (Mista Don’t Play 2) was released in 2015.
One of his most notable albums was his fifth, Walkin' Bank Roll, which was released in 2007 and peaked at #45 on the Billboard 200.
The Memphis rapper is also starting his own record label, Project Records, although no notable works have been released yet on the label.
At age 43, Project is still going strong, and although a lot of rappers in today have surpassed him in terms of popularity, he is still a prevalent name in the rap industry as well as a mogul in the Memphis hip-hop scene.
