Chris Patrick is riding high after releasing his latest project, X-Files. Complete with contributions from Noah, Erykah Officer, Nashir, Dende and Billy Blount, X-Files is a 51-minute exploration into the mental state of a young, Black creative individual as he grapples with love, family trauma, violence and much more. Through it all, the New Jersey native delivers hits like “Up Now” and “Lead Me On” along with introspective tracks like “Insane/Staircases” and “Rooftops” featuring Dende. His willingness to bare his inner thoughts on wax has garnered praise from fans, publications and other artists.
“Multifaceted is an understatement,” one person commented on Instagram.
“Oakland Interlude was everything I needed it to be,” another person noted.
As the praise piles in for Chris Patrick, he manages to keep the ball rolling. He recently stopped by On The Radar to freestyle over “The Heart Part V” from Beach Noise. He’s also been asking his fans what songs they’d like to see live as he seemingly teases a tour or special performance. With all of the positive things that have happened over the last few months in his life, Chris Patrick had to overcome a traumatic experience to put together X-Files. As he explains it, he was kidnapped by Erykah Officer on June 13, 2021. If you don’t believe him, check out the footage he managed to scrape together from the harrowing experience below.
