Trinidadian rapper, singer/songwriter Son of Mars also known as Stephon Peters-Smith, drops lyrical video for “Anakin” via FamilyOverGold Entertainment. The newcomer is starting the year off strong with cosigns from some of music’s most powerful collectives, collaborating with Grammy winning producer Alex Chiger in the winter of 2020. Hinting at a debut mixtape coming sometime this year, the artist is on a roll with another visual off of his latest EP Son of Mars.
Son of Mars was born and raised in the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago, he moved to the US in 2015. Spending time between New York and Atlanta, Mars discovered his passion for music in 2018 when he attended the University of Rochester. It was at the university he was able to pursue musical production, while furthering his interests in Greek mythology and entrepreneurship. He recalled when he was younger that his peers and family members in Trinidad would often refer to him as “Demi God,” a name that has stuck with him in the later years.
His experiences have laid the foundation for the young artist to have a wide array of cultural influences and musical talent. His previously released singles “First Born,” “Watch Yourself,” and “Anakin” have been starting to gain more and more attention as it elevates from the underground world into the mainstream universe. Fast forward to age 21 Mars’ aspirations have grown further and he is hard at work on his debut mixtape due for release next year.
