About Poontz

Poontz, the Boise, Idaho rapper formerly known as “OG”, was born in Penjamo,
Guanajuato, Mexico. At the age of three, he immigrated to the United States on
his mother’s back. Having grown up in and around gang life, he quickly started to see life from a different point of view and began to write about it. Music became his release. Having seen too many of his friends and family members succumb to the pitfalls of society, he decided to give hope and motivation to others through music. As reflected in Poontz’s music, one message rings loud and clear: everyone is worthy of giving themselves more in life— no matter where someone comes from, or what has happened to them. Poontz, who started his rap career at the age of 17, says that his main influences
are Chicano rappers like Mr. Shadow, Lil Rob, and Mr Lil One. He also states he
finds inspiration from other artists such as The Game and Dr. Dre because those were the rappers he was exposed to at a young age. In means of style, Poontz is known to bring a 90’s west coast influence to his beats and a little bit of east coast in his flow. Some people have said he sounds like Mack 10, SPM, and Big Pun. Others say that he has the cadence and flow of Meek Mill and the love, pain, and heart of Memphis Bleek.
Poontz has shared the stage with artists like Mozzy, Mark Battles, and Young
Drummer Boy. He has headlined his own sold out shows in both Boise and Idaho Falls, including popular venues such as Treefort Music Festival, Jefito Hats Lowrider Car Show, and Day Ones Music Festival.
Poontz will be the first to say that being a rap artist in Boise isn’t easy, but that is
not what he focuses on. Always leaning towards the positive, Poontz states he keeps his focus on what is possible.

Poontz is also featured alongside upcoming artists like “Might
Just Win” by TNYG and, “Interlude” feat Chame. His 1st EP, “Great & Grateful” can be found on all platforms and includes fan favorites such as, “Dreams” and, “Never Stoppin”. 
Despite his notable music career in the Boise rap scene, Poontz still states his
biggest accomplishments include being a father, becoming a US Citizen and
making a difference for  himself and for others through music. He works hard with the hope to inspire others like him.
