“STAR WALKIN” (League of Legends Worlds Anthem)
23-year old rapper/singer Lil Nas X has returned with “STAR WALKIN,” a new anthem for the League of Legends Worlds tournament. League of Legends is a video game that organizes an annual tournament where teams of gamers worldwide compete for the title of the best players. “STAR WALKIN ” arrives as the second single of 2022 from Lil Nas X. Prior single “Late To Da Party (F*ck BET) (feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again)” arrived in June of this year. The “THAT’S WHAT I WANT” vocalist released his platinum Grammy-nominated debut album “MONTERO” in 2021. With that being said, new music from Lil Nas X is highly anticipated.
In contrast to his prior work, “STAR WALKIN” experiments with drill music. Nas raps melodically over the drill beat on the verses while the chorus transitions to singing over a pop instrumental.
Further, “STAR WALKIN ” shines light on Lil Nas X’s bold confidence and the ones that doubted him. Nas overcame the obstacles that stood in his way, and has become a Grammy-winning global sensation. In the chorus Nas declares that he will continue to exceed until the day he dies. “Don’t ever say it’s over if I’m breathin’/Racin’ to the moonlight and I’m speedin’/I’m headed to the stars, ready to go far/I’m star walkin” Nas will continue to break records, strive for greatness and do the unimaginable. He will extend his legacy and impact on this generation.
Undoubtedly, it wouldn’t be a Lil Nas X song without shock value. The rapper loves to add one liners that surprise the listener or make people laugh. Speaking of, the second verse of “STAR WALKIN” says, “Been that n**** since I came out my momma/Thankin’ God daddy never wore a condom.” Recognized for his confident anthems, Nas has been an inspirational to millions. Despite the adversity he faces being a queer rapper, he continues to be his authentic self. “They said I wouldn’t make it out alive/They told me I would never see the rise/That’s why I gotta kill ’em every time”
Lil Nas X STAR Power
Above all, Lil Nas X proudly embraces his sexuality in his music and has served as representation for the queer community in a genre that has been historically homophobic. The rapper proves people wrong as he continues to flourish in the music industry being a recipient of two Grammy awards, five Billboard Music Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, two BET Hip Hop Awards, and more! Nas is on the rise and no one can stop him.
