Brooklyn-bred rapper, CL, first began his writing game as a journalist, penning articles for the likes of Smooth Magazine, Vibe, and, as well. But, he was also working on musical aspirations as well.

Following the release of his debut mixtape, Never Looking Back, he drops a music video the project’s second single, “Be Your Star.”

“The video, conceptually, is about through all the bullsh** and trife I’ve gone through in life, and me hoping to be my supporters’ ‘star’ at the end of the day, despite it all,” CL explains. “I talk about my issues with my misleading ex, my problems in school, my father leaving me, and not seeing my brother.”
