San Diego hip hop artist Star2 just dropped his new single “Run Away”. Inspired by the current state of crisis in Ukraine and his own childhood struggle growing up as a Thai Refugee, the song is a timely and important reminder of how war, genocide, and hate can and will leave a devastating mark on generations to come.
“Run Away” has been deemed Star2’s “conscious rap” release, and the song itself is melancholic, heart-wrenching, and eye-opening. By narrating his own personal story, Star2 invites others to see the dark reality from the lens of someone who has faced these horrific catastrophes first hand. Featuring spoken word, emotive guitar, and lyrics that hit with harsh truths, the song is a powerful move for the artist, who is working on making his name in the hip hop game.
