Hey guys. My 8th gen blows ice cold air and then the compressor turns off after about 8 minutes. The system does have pressure/Freon. Has been doing the same since last year, where should I start?

Sounds like your compressor is disengaging once it heats up. There a DIY on here on how to remove some shims to make it make contact even once heated up. Other option is to replace compressor

Should probably replace the coil as well if you're going to work on the clutch.

The other culprit and super cheap fix is the A/C Clutch relay, which can also heat up and stop working like this. Literally like a $10 easy fix. Sometimes you can tap on the relay and get the clutch to kick back in. If this happens, then you know this is your problem.
