- His first exposure to music was at his maternal grandmother’s house. A cousin of his also used to stay there and he used to regularly play Michael Jackson.

- The day Tupac was killed in a shooting, Pat was in jail. On listening about Tupac’s death, he promised himself that he won’t go out as Tupac did, so upon his release, he mended his ways.
- He was raised in Cypress Gardens and the crime situation was so bad at that time that he often had to carry guns around with him for his safety.
- While growing up, he used to sell drugs and break into stores to conduct robberies.
- The drug addicts often used to knock on his window late at night. They even broke the window. His mother thought that someone was trying to break in and got bars on all the windows, which was the inspiration behind his single, Burglar Bars.
