As he prepares to release his seventh studio album, Project Pat follows in Jay-Z's footsteps by collaborating with Santogold.

Jay-Z sampled Santogold's song "Shove It" for his Notorious soundtrack contribution, "Brooklyn Go Hard." And recently Project Pat's remix of the same track hit the net. Pat told SOHH how the collaboration came about.

"Santogold has a relationship with Paul and Juicy [of Three 6 Mafia] and she told them she wanted me on the song. I was more than obliged. I was very honored. She said she listened to my stuff. [It] was shocking to me. I was like, 'For real?' She was like, 'Yeah I want Pat on this song bad.' So I had to go on and make it happen."

"I think that people are really vibing on her music. Everybody get their time and I think now is her time."

The Santogold record will not appear on Pat's upcoming album, Real Recognize Real.

Project Pat first had mainstream success when he provided the hook for Three 6 Mafia's hit "Sippin' on Some Syrup" in 2000.
