Producer: J Slash
Album: Ghetto Dreams
Label: Wreckshop Records

Fat Pat was poised to become a huge success, having appeared on several S.U.C. mixtapes and working on two albums between 1997 and 1998. Tragically, both albums were released posthumously. He was shot and killed on February 3, 1998, while going to pick up an appearance fee from a promoter. The single "Tops Drop," from his debut album Ghetto Dreams, is an ode to southern car culture; sitting low on 4's, woodgrain gripping, and of course, dropping your top. The first 30 seconds of "Tops Drop" build anticipation like nothing else. The bass kicks in, and synths trill over it, working themselves to a crescendo before the beat drops into a thumping groove.
