Star2 is stamping his footprint on the future of Asian-American hip-hop with his adrenaline pumping beats and vividly rich visuals that tell a story of grit. His latest music video for “Gangstas” alongside $tupid Young and Lil Poppa is an immersive trip through the subconscious scars each artist has endured on their climb toward greatness.

“Gangstas” will set your pulse racing with dark lashes of piano, mesmerizing beats that cast shadows over the gloom, and intrepid vocals that ruminate on each rapper’s difficult past. Directed by Chico Bennett, the music video takes place at a haunting church adorned with holy icons that add to the inescapable gravity of “Gangstas”. Each rapper bears their soul from the confines of a confession booth, praying in the pews or gazing up toward the heavens in search of a better future. $tupid Young raps, “Life is like a game of chess, you better watch how you move.” “Gangstas” will immerse you in the cavernous bends of each artist’s inner-psyche as they walk through memories full of danger and deceit.

Star2 and $tupid Young recently collaborated on their EP entitled Different Breed. Together, these two rappers are shaping the trajectory for Asian-American hip-hop to come. Star2 has worked alongside the likes of Soulja Boy, Luh Kel, and HoodTrophy Bino to name a few. The “Gangstas” music video continues his legacy of hard-hitting beats laced tight with experiential lyricism.

Ka-ren refugee pop artists Star2 and FG Fame release the new single and music video for “I Don’t Like You”. The Ka-ren are a minority ethnic group from Myanmar who have faced persecution and forced displacement. Star2 and Fame’s music brings their stories of exile and perseverance to a wider audience.

Since 2023, Star2 has been visiting the Thai refugee camp where he was born and working with other Ka-ren artists. “I Don’t Like You” from Star2 and Fame highlights the gossip and drama that often surfaces in the face of young, unrequited love. The song is about a determined girl who tries to insist she is the girlfriend of Fame and then later, Star2. She brags to her friends and spreads rumors about her imaginary relationships, but they both let her down gently while setting the record straight. The music video, filmed on location in vibrant Bangkok, Thailand, matches captivating strings and infectious beats of the song with lush, colorful backdrops. The result is an infectious, action-packed saga highlighting the talents of these Ka-ren artists who have come together to make music despite the hardships they have faced.

Star2 reveals, “Fame likes to sing romantic songs and so do I! “I Don’t Like You” is fun and light. We had a good time filming the video in Bangkok. Ka-ren artists are underrated. The world will soon see their talent.”

Star2 has received high acclaim from tastemaker media including Ones to Watch, Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, GQ, BET, Lyrical Lemonade, and HotNewHipHop. He is executive producing an upcoming album which will feature FG Fame along with other Ka-ren artists from around the world set for release in 2025.
