When I first listened to Mars, I immediately thought of an early version of Pusha T. It might be the NC/VA feel that gives it that almost southernsound. Mars talks about putting his music together, the realness of his music, authenticity and shows off his hard work ethic in his intro.

The beat selection for this project fit perfectly with Mars style of rap. Although he’s not your average rapper who sticks to things lke word place and rhyming, Mars still puts his own style together in his expression. Musically, it’s still sound.

Mars, like all artist, wants to be heard; articulation of his feelings in the form of rap. I see potential for this indie artist as he continues on his journey and develops into his true potiential.

Listen for yourself and let me know what you think.

Update: @IamDIDDY and @Drake altercation

TMZ reports the beef was over the song “0 to 100/The Catch Up.”

Producer Boi-1da sent the beat to both artists to record a song. Puffy had it for eight months without laying down any vocals. Drizzy knew the track was hot and decided to move forward and record it solo.

The song performed well, charting in the U.S., Australia, the U.K. and Canada. It received nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the upcoming 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

Fast forward to Monday, December 8, when Diddy saw Drake for the first time since the song was released. He confronted the YMCMB rapper outside of Club Liv in Miami Beach and was blown off. At that point the Bad Boy Records CEO told him, “You’ll never disrespect me again,” before punching him. Drake aggravated an old shoulder injury during the altercation and had to be taken to the emergency room.
