His sound mirrors those of SlaughterGang stars in Young Nuddy and 21 Savage however, Mars is an artist operating in his own category — completely aware of his thoughts, feelings and surroundings.
On his catchy new single “Fitted” Mars’ passionately raw vocals and intrinsic bars shine brighter than ever before — rapping about the unembellished adversity he and his peers have endured together.

His rhymes are as real as can be, speaking on his upbringing surrounded by violence, crime, and murder as well as the everlasting chaos that’s consumed him and his closest friends. Regardless of the hardship, Mars keeps an unshattered bond with those closest to him — for their collective perseverance is the reason they’re all thriving today.
