I've always had a passion for applying different techniques that usually aren't applied this scale and all started with a concept from a great teacher: Pentatonic Tetrachords. Essentially, you're building chords only using notes from the minor pentatonic scale. You can start with a Cm7, which contains notes from the C minor pentatonic scale (C, Eb, G, Bb). You would take each note from the chord and move it to the next note of the minor pentatonic scale (C moves to Eb, Eb moves to F, etc.) There's more in-depth discussion in the video along with a backing track.
