YouTube video magazine Elevator just poured major validation all over The PNTHN. At the time of writing this post, the Chumbucket music video is sitting on almost 9000 views, with more than 200% likes over dislikes. For an up and coming crew, that’s pretty impressive. Let’s hope that these cats can stay humble and focused, because it looks like things are already lining up in a major way for them.
As much as I dig individual skill in hip-hop, I’m more so a fan of a crew that can get down. The PNTHN seem primed to be the crew to watch for in the central Texas scene these days, taking all of the necessary steps to blaze a trail. After a handful of memorable videos and some time on the road, the crew has released POTLUCK on all of the streaming sources. The project, while only 6 tracks deep, does a great job of showcasing each member’s skill and personality without being disorienting. Those familiar with the live shows should easily be able to identify who is who, which will certainly amplify reaction at the live shows. Plain and simple, I’m excited to watch the trajectory of The PNTHN, because it feels like success will be as attainable as they want it to be… staying focused and driven will be the key to making it a reality, and the crew has already shown they are ready to make moves.
In the information age, everything happens at an accelerated pace. The process of forming a band, writing a catalog of songs and developing a rapport and chemistry with one another used to take years, but those days are over. Take The PNTHN, based out of San Marcos, Texas. In what seems like a matter of months, they’ve dropped a couple of projects, a handful of music videos, have played shows throughout Texas, and recently stopped by KTSW for a Studio C Session. Check it out, give it a like and a share, and definitely support these cats because they’ll be doing bigger things sooner than later.
Shout out to The PNTHN for all that they have accomplished in 2017. The year has found the crew exploring their dynamic via music videos, live performances, and recently, the release of [from disorder…]. This release was recently celebrated at The Good Stuff Community Store in San Marcos, and a brief (but vivid) video of the event was captured by @kingChu__ & @camo_15. Enjoy, and keep your eyes/ears open for more goodness from the crew.

The combination of filmmaker Jeffrey Garcia and hip-hop thinktank The PNTHN are truly becoming a force to be reckoned with. This go-round, collective members Ra and Jedi Chancellor rock the track NOSFERATU (off their upcoming project [from disorder…]), and Jeffrey Garcia provides them with the perfect moody aesthetics to match. If you aren’t in the loop for these collaborative videos, you are really and truly missing out.

School is back, but there’s no need to worry. DC4PREZ of THE PNTHN has some advice for you in the form of Skip School, another dynamite music video from Jeffrey Garcia. The song is fire, there are some familiar faces and places in the midst of the video, and the whole things looks like a million bucks. With the upcoming release of the full length project from THE PNTHN (titled [From Disorder…]), I can only imagine that their will be more collaborations of this nature in the works. I’m gonna keep my eyes and ears open, and here’s to hoping that others do the same.
