Pitty pat rappers trying to get to 5
This album dropped at a time when 5 mics in the Source was still a pretty big deal. Big Boi finally got the coveted 5 mics when Aquemini dropped — after voicing his displeasure that Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik only got 4.5 — and now these inferior rappers are trying to step to his level.
“Pitty pat” refers to the Southern card game where the object is to be the first to score 5 points. It also can just be seen as an adjective for the inferior and childish rappers that want to get 5 mics in the Source like Big Boi.
