Taking advantage of the momentum that has made him one of the Triangle's most talked-about emcees, Raleigh's Pat Junior prepares to release the sequel to last year's acclaimed black & mild EP at a release show featuring Nance, Tony G, R.J. Hatton, Miniluv, and Marc Anthony Figueras. The rapper has done a remarkable job garnering attention across genres by maintaining the enthusiasm of hip-hop heads through lyricism and tantalizing audiophiles with his eclectic production style. He could produce an instrumental album by himself or make a rap record produced by someone else and both projects would both be thoroughly enjoyable. Musical chops aside, the people who Pat Junior surrounds himself with are integral to his final product, and the release show reflects that. The lineup that looks like an indie Super Friends; everyone involved is individually extraordinary.
