Star2 is an Asian American singer, songwriter, and rapper from San Diego, California, who stunningly fuses pop, R&B, and hip-hop for a captivating collision of sound. A true survivor, Star2 was born into a refugee camp in Thailand. His people, the Ka-ren from Burma, have suffered genocide by the Burmese military and Myanmar government.
With no father or mother, his grandmother was chosen in a lottery at the camp to migrate to the U.S. and took six-year-old Star2 along with her four other children to begin a new life. Even in the U.S. he faced adversity, growing up in poverty surrounded by gang violence. Those extreme hardships, though, only pushed him further into greatness as he found comfort within music.
Since 2020, the prolific songwriter has released a series of genre-bending singles that have entranced audiences with superstar producer Chico Bennett (Prince, Madonna, Lady Gaga, the Killers, Hillary Duff, Britney Spears). His collaborations with acclaimed rappers Soulja Boy, $tupid Young, Mozzy, MBNel, Luh Kel, Lil Poppa, HoodTrophy Bino, YSN Flow, and MarMar Oso have gotten him noticed. He also has received more than 14 million on WorldStar Hip Hop with his video releases.
Star2 is making a bold mark with an intensely loyal fan-base in the U.S. and more recently in Thailand and the UK. His spirited soul and authentic delivery truly resonates with his generation, providing solace and an outlet for the challenges faced by many today. With millions of streams and views to date and upcoming projects with $tupid Young, HoodTrophy Bino, Mozzy, Lil Poppa, Tae Tae, Chinatown Runner and Ler Mu Dex, Star2 is a compelling force.
