Star2 is a new man on his latest single ‘New Me,’featuring performances from Soulja Boy and Luh Kel. Set in a sleek, multi-million-dollar mansion, Star2 hosts a pool party in a backyard full of frolicking, thong-wearing beauties. Vignettes of them spraying whipped cream on each other, splashing Luh Kel and Star2 in a Jacuzzi full of hundred dollar bills, and twerking beside Big Draco in his orange Lambo dance across the screen.
The song opens with a boisterous string section and chronicles Star2’s journey from rags to riches. Star2 remarks, “Making this song with Soulja Boy and Luh Kel was unreal. The set was lit with beautiful women, water-gun fights, whipped cream and hella dope cars.” Eyeing yet another thonged beauty walking past the pool, Star2 notes, “This is every man’s dream.”
Star2 began his life in a refugee camp. Abandoned by his teen-aged mother, fleeing genocide from the Burmese army in Myanmar who attacked their village and burned it to the ground. A lottery in the camp resulted in his passage to San Diego with his grandmother and her four children. Star2’s ‘New Me’ began in San Diego as a young child and has continued into a promising hip hop career as a young adult. ‘New Me’ is the second track on a blockbuster EP that includes features with HoodTrophy Bino from Soulja Boy’s Stacks on Deck Money Gang label, Soulja, Luh Kel, CMG’s Lil Poppa, the iconic Asian rapper $tupid Young, and Sacramento superstar Mozzy.
