"Latest Toughs: Samantha Glass, Raquel Bell, Kynard and More"

As Austin hip hop in its perpetually behind the curve manner over commits itself to trap, fresher sounds are emanating from our more popular big brother Houston. Take a listen to Poncho P’s “Proppy” to get a glimpse at what I mean. The individual components of the track nod to some classics– that bubbly Neptunes-like beat, YATU’s ESG indebted swangin’ and bangin’ on the hook– but Poncho’s aloof swagger and clear as ice delivery put him at odds with the mush mouthed menace of his chart topping contemporaries. This is hip hop that keeps one leg in the past and one leg in the future and somehow manages to not trip over itself. Poncho P’s Bandcamp bio self-deprecatingly claims “I sucked for a very long time but now I’m good enough to charge people for my music!” but I think he’s heading towards something far greater than a $9.72 PayPal cash out. - Ovrld

YATU(You Are The Universe) is a small collective of artists currently based in Houston, Texas. With cultural influences that span from Nigeria to Colombia, they aim to appeal to all citizens of the universe with their sounds. This concept is evident in their debut project entitled, [Lost]. This collective was brought together by their common desire to push the boundaries of hip hop. Although the group consists of Langston Hunter, Alloyyaday, Poncho P, and Qelly Slater, the concept of YATU extends to every individual. YATU strives to inspire any and everyone to take control of their own destiny. By breaking down barriers in their music, they want to encourage their listeners to break down barriers in other aspects of their lives.
