Who is Mars Hoffa?

"I tend to want things in life I can't grasp, Sky's the limit for who? My name's Mars! So I'm thinking out of this world, Somewhere Far..." - Mars Hoffa

Moustapha Sylla better known as Mars Hoffa, born in Newark, New Jersey with Senegalese roots (West Africa) is an artist whose realities and visage are portrayed within his music, lyrical cadence, and style. Eager and passionate about his music, Mars Hoffa unexpectedly delivers something "new" while experimenting and painting pictures over an entire Ep solely produced by Rashaad Taylor titled “Black Market.” Within this installment, Mars delivers when expressing his culture yet reflecting about his immediate surroundings while elegantly channeling upbringing in Dakar and the City of Newark, immediate issues and moral gems we should live by. Still paying homage to the many different sub genres of hip hop which have helped formed his own lane, Mars Hoffa has left his mark as an upcoming artist after receiving great feedback from a broad fan base and blogs. “LONGSHOREMEN: A Prelude to Black Market” was released during the first week of August after Hoffa decided to cater to his fans who awaited “Black Market.” Black Market was release on November 21, 2013.

PRODuct: Ike Slimster, Brooklyn based Nigerian/American Artist, Producer, GFX Designer, Photographer, StylistP and more.

Ike Slimster


The industry…honestly, I can be pretty naive about the world. But the thing people forget is, all that clout and shout about money clouds your mind, and may eventually consume you. But it’s whatever. They’ll do them, and I’ll just continue carrying out my duty as an artist. I’m just as much a man as they are, to be honest. I just want someone to wake up and keep going because they listened to my music and the words behind it. I want to give to the people what so many artists have given to me.

Word on the Street! - Is the legendary Toyota Supra making a comeback after a long hiatus? | Toyota FT-1

This bad bitch was designed by Toyota’s California design studio and “inspired” by new CEO Akio Toyoda and his love for racing. While the FT-1 does preview a new halo sports car for the Japanese brand, it doesn’t have any sort of power figures (yet) to give us an idea of what would move this beast.

Trip Special | New LP by CharlieRED - MUSE released on August 20th


Couple weeks ago, we featured CharlieRED on the website when they debuted one of their soulful charismatic singles from MUSE titled "GreenGREED."  We've been aware of Rocki Evans (vocalist and songwriter of CharlieRED)  presence in NYC since a friend of ours and NYC native/blogger MightyFRANSO put us on game with his project "Simply Twisted" featuring songs like "Fools" where he melodically croons over his own rendition of the Fugees' Ready or Not.

After stopping by RUSH RADIO at WRNU Rutgers Radio in Newark NJ where we debuted "VICES" we were all excited about the future of the soulful Houston bred Rocki Evans in NYC. He later teamed up with producer Cobain Ivory to form the phenomonal duo "CharlieRED."  Since then they've release thought provoking projects such as  Religion EP and toured across the nation and Canada.  Today I will like to share with you something special.  Here's CharlieRED's new project MUSE, an LP currently free and featured on many blogs and sites such as 2dopeboyz, OkayPlayer and more.
