After his death, Fat Pat’s debut album Ghetto Dreams released a month later, bolstering anthems still played to this day such as “Tops Drop”, “Superstar” and title track “Ghetto Dreams.” Fat Pat’s music and spirit will forever resonate within the hearts of everyone who holds Houston music dear to their hearts.
