"Off top! Fat Pat always conveyed a story based product. Genius!!! He maintained is composure in all his bars....consistent ....precised...animated lyricist. I wished I'd would have an opportunity to work with him. "See you soon Fat Pat and relay to Screw, HAWK, Mafioso, Big Steve and rest of the click to watch over Al-D, C-Note, Mr 3-2, Lil KeKe and rest of the Screwed Up Click" 33, and still screwed fo' life, all ready.

"1998, Fat Pat is killed a few weeks before the release of his first album, this one, Ghetto Dreams. This album is a balance of beautiful beats and fun loving lyrics, with a few serious joints. Knoke D and Double D produce the extremely high-quality beats here, and they are simply amazing. Generally, they are laidback smooth, but at times, bouncy Texas funk, and many of the joints draw a heavy influence from crunk and G-Funk. Fat Pat has a dope flow and neat deep voice. His rap topics may not be groundbreaking, and some hint at mainstream tendencies, but he is fun to listen to. The stuff today is played out compared to what's on here. This album is a dope gangsta party joint. The title track is fun, multi-layered, melodic funk. Pat flosses hard, but lets it be known that he had no hand-outs and had to really work hard to get where he did. Pat gets his mack on in joints like the Isley inflected "Peep N' Me." He flosses his mack more on the lowrider ready "I'm Tha Man" with the fellow Wreckshop homies Pimp Tyte. The beat is heavy G-Funk with a faint keyboard melody in the background. You can hear Biggie's sampled voice: "I'm the man girlfriend" from "Big Poppa." "Reality" is a straight banger dropping knowledge of the endless cycle of hood life and how he wants a different path for himself. The beat has a west coast beat pattern and a keyboard melody reminiscent of Snoop Dogg's "Who Got The Gangsta S---" from the 1994 west coast classic soundtrack Murder Was The Case. "Tops Drop" is a heavy electro-funk joint ready for the lowriders. "Friends We Know" has a sunny beat and discusses how homies can turn on you in a second. "Body Roc" seems like Fat Pat's fun, light hearted party remake of Bone Thug's 1997 joint "Body Rott" with an upbeat melody and crunkish bounce. A sad joint is the soft, sweet, and R&B inflected "Missing Out G's" which is haunting since Fat Pat is no longer with us. I believe that Big Moe does the singing in the hook. Even though Pat is hella flossy and playa, he is fun to listen to, and I really enjoyed this classic from Houston. The beats are simply outta this world. Beware of one thing; if you have the reprint, the track listing is incorrect. A few joints from his Wreckshop Family: Throwed In The Game are incorrectly listed here. Ripping on the computer will yield the correct titles in order. R.I.P. to a playa took way too young! This cat had heart."
