Although I don’t know much about cars, I do know that Hellcats are more popular than ever in rap culture today. Notorious for their loud engines, lightning speed, and ability to outperform other muscle cars, Hellcats make a statement anywhere they go and provide a boost of confidence to anyone who drives one. Drawing similarities between themselves and one of rap’s beloved whips, Trapland Pat and Eli Fross keep their foot on the gas in their new video, “Hellcat.
Previously teasing his first-ever NY artist collaboration in the “Motions” video, Trapland Pat described the link up as a great experience: “Eli is a cool artist. We listened to a few beats, laughed, and made jokes. It was easy for us to vibe! He chose the beat to ‘Hellcat,’ and then we cooked up. We created the concept of us going back in fourth and made a hit.”
“Hellcat” finds the duo trading off boot-tough raps about the things they enjoy most: money, women, and intimidating their haters. Directed by Shot By Jolo, the video finds Pat and Eli chilling in a Hellcat as models approach their windows, spending time with their crew, and the Florida native doing NY’s sturdy dance with Eli. While the video is shot in a sparse white studio, the sleek black Hellcat poised inside is an immediate attention-grabber. Similar to a Hellcat, Trapland Pat and Eli Fross come standard with sharp flows and swagger designed to leave the competition in the dust (“I just took off, them n****s still on the runway”). Between signing to Fredo Bang’s Bang Biz imprint under Alamo Records and landing on the lineup for Rolling Loud Miami 2022, Trapland Pat is on the move – possibly even faster than a Hellcat.
