With Walkin Bank Roll due to drop October 30th with guest appearances from the Hypnotize Minds camp and Pimp C, Mista Dont Play really dont play at all, as he dropped his jewels as well as gave his opinion on the difference between the street life and the slow grind. AllHipHop.com: Whats been going on since Crook by the Book?Project Pat: Oh well, you know, weve been working on Adventures in Hollyhood, working on my new album and Three 6 Mafias new album.AllHipHop.com: Describe what it was like filming Adventures In Hollyhood for MTV.Project Pat: I got involved in it because Im Hypnotize Minds affiliated and we just trying to get more exposure and get our faces on them TVs. A lot of stuff behind the scenes they didnt show. A whole lot of stuff. Stuff like Treice Ray just a whole lot of stuff.AllHipHop.com: Was it renewed for a second season?Project Pat: We got put in for a movie for it. Yeah, were going to make a movie out of it. God keeps blessing us down here.AllHipHop.com: Youve been a known dirty south rapper for a while now, how do you feel about it being in the mainstream and where do you think the sound is going?Project Pat: Well, Im gonna put it to you like this right here, one thing about the dirty south is that we real stubborn in our ways. You know how they say South people are set in they ways, so the thing is as far as the music and the rap the South gon keep it forever. See, where New York messed up is they gave it to us and they ran the game all day but they didnt let them other little towns, little cities get on like Connecticut, Boston, and all those little surrounding cities. If it wasnt New York, then nobody from New York was trying to hear it. See in the South we dont roll like that. We let everybody get on. We want everybody to get a piece. We dont care. We not trippin baby, you know that there. Arkansas aint came out yet, Oklahoma City aint came out yet. You got plenty of people that aint came out of Memphis yet. Nobody came out of Knoxville or Chattanooga yet. I know some dudes in Johnson City, Tennessee, up that way; them boys are off the chain. They gon come out and when they come out, we gon buy it. We aint gon boo em. We gon put em on down here, we aint trippin. As long as they talking about this money, this shine and looking good and hustlin and gettin it, thats all we want to hear. And also, I want to say this, I dont know who in the clown was but it was some guy up on the East coast talking about down south rappers is like bubble gum rappers. Well, I think he needs to start chewing a whole pack of Hubba Bubba because thats whats selling out here. All this ol Hip-Hop has no meaning, man, kill yoself. Its lots of money out here; we aint trying to think about that. Quit playing games, n***as got kids out here and the kids gotta eat. Its got plenty of meaning. Im feeding other folk and people around me are getting jobs and money for they kids. Now one thing about down South like I said earlier, people got they own styles in the things they do. We got a lot of styles in the South and we dont trip. People support each other and its all good. As far as the sound, its getting more on dances now and hustlin in streets. And you always gotta be talking something about that money. See down South, we aint complicated. You aint got to be dotting your Is and crossing your Ts in the dirty. We aint gon trip on that. We dont say girl, we say guhl. Man, quit trippin! We bringing our styles to the game and guess what, they diggin it.AllHipHop.com: Talk to me about your upcoming album Walkin Bank Roll. Any special guests or favorite tracks?Project Pat: Man, I got my boy Pimp C on there and Three 6 Mafia is on there. Me and my boy Pimp got a song on there called Talkin Smart to the Pimpin. And its some flames on here, you know. It come out October 30th with the number one hit single in the United States called Dont Call Me No Mo.AllHipHop.com: How do you feel about T.I. and his possible federal charges? Arent they similar to what you went through in 2001?Project Pat: They exactly what I went through and its a shame. Its a godforsaken shame. You know, thats a hardcore blow to the South and I hate it from the bottom of my heart. I pray for the man and I truly believe that God is going to bring him out of this situation. But man, Im gonna tell you something. You just got to be watchful out here, you know. I ask everybody that gets in the car with me You got a gun on you? You got a gun on you? You got a gun on you? I gotta know man because you cant be riding with me because I dont know man; Im not having it. See dealing with rappers down South we got a lot of street poets. And for a street guy to have a gun is like waking up in the morning, thats nothing. Now if the police pull me over for that, hes arresting me. I got caught with two, a .44 and a .22 revolver and I said to myself, Memphis got a lot of crime. Memphis is guttah, its going down. Its been bad; you know what Im saying? We got plenty of gangs. Memphis is not a white-collar city; its a gangsta town. And this real talk, the drug dealers and killers could be riding down the street and they could be signing autographs. They got the fan-base in my city. To a dude thats coming from that, old habits are hard to break. You just gotta be smart, man. The robber got the gun to your back and the police got they gun to your face. Its like being between a rock and a hard place. Its real out here but I mean in his situation, it could have easily happened to me. And a lot of people dont understand, they say, He couldve did this and did that, but believe you and me; I was in the same situation. I had bodyguards and all that but at the same time, my mind was Cant nobody protect me like me. So I feel the brother, you know what Im saying. I hate that it happened like it did. AllHipHop.com: What do you want to let him or people in the same situation as him know about what theyre about to go through?Project Pat: If theres anything Id just tell the brother man because he seems like a real spiritual man, just turn it over to God. God gon work it out and however way its lookin dont go by looks, just go by what youve prayed for. And stand your grounds on what youve prayed for because God gon give it to you. Real talk. AllHipHop.com: Is there any advice youd like to give these young boys out here that look to the streets as their only way of life?Project Pat: Well, you know, Im gonna tell you this right here; the streets are not the only way of life. Its a proprietor of the devil. And I tell my people that the key to my success is that I pay my tithes and offerings. The real dudes in the street, these real guys, we respect God. We real, we know the business. So I tell these guys to put it down and give God a try. Turn your life over to Christ man, thats real talk. Thats [the] only way you gon make it out here. Thats the only way Ive seen. Thats what got me out the hood. That right there and taking initiative, slow grind. And when I say slow grind, just go on head and get you a job and just slow grind it, man. Because that slow money is fa sho money. AllHipHop.com: Anything else youd like to share to the public?Project Pat: I want to say lets send some prayers up for T.I. and hold your guns and expect to come good because a lot of people be talking negative and it hurts. A lot of people are like ah, he shouldnt have done this and he did this but hey, its done now so quit talking like that. Send something to his lawyer. Real talk, quit talking about the man so much and speak something good. Pray for the man or something; dont be sitting around here just talking. And I want to also say that you need go pick up this album Walkin Bank Roll coming out October 30th. Trick or treat man! Go cop that, real talk! Now while you copping Walkin Bank Roll go on head and cop the entire Hypnotize Minds catalog!
