"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. Every aspect of this project was captured to craft it's raw result, even including the artwork by Newark native, Baja Ukweli. 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 is set for release in the first week of November.
