Stephon Peters-Smith, known professionally as Son of Mars, is a rapper, record producer and songwriter. Known for his high energy and 90s styled rhythms. He was Born and raised in the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Mars initially began gaining underground recognition as an artist following the release of his song “Anakin” off his 2019 EP Son of Mars.
“First Born” tells the story of Mars’ unique experience growing up in the Caribbean, an authoritative narrative, with ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The likable tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a contemporary trap/hip hop aroma, centered around his West Indian Roots. The artist composed and recorded the EP himself, while still attending the University of Rochester. The EP contains three dynamic tracks titled “First Born”, “Watch Yourself”, and “Anakin” that seamlessly combines catchy songwriting with a touch of Atlanta’s concurrent trap melodies. The product is a versatile sound that blends Son of Mars’ Trinidadian roots with the vast number of American cultures that he’d been exposed too and adopted over the years.
Son of Mars is no stranger to the Atlanta music life. In August 2020, Mars met up with Atlanta native, two-time Grammy nominated, multi-platinum producer and engineer Jack Brown at his Atlanta studio. The Trinidadian standout has been carving a name for himself as an artist you want to keep an eye on. We recommend adding Son of Mars’s “First born” single to your personal playlist. The duo is set to release a number of tracks this upcoming fall 2021.
