This genre-bending musician is fighting to save the planet

The hip-hop experimentalist Raury joins forces with G-Star RAW in the battle against ocean pollution

“As songwriter, a producer, an instrumentalist – I’m a storyteller,” explains Atlanta-born songwriter Raury. “And the severity of ocean pollution is a story I want to tell.” Following in the footsteps of Pharrell Williams, Raury is wearing his support for the big blue on his sleeve by donning G-Star Raw for the Oceans – a capsule collection made from recycled plastic bottles – on his first European tour. 

In the wake of the United Nations x Parley for the Oceans event last week – which saw Williams join with artists, designers and environmentalists – it’s clear that pollution is at the top of everyone's agendas right now.

Fancy seeing Raury live? G-Star is giving away tickets to see him at one of his European shows, plus attend a meet-and-greet backstage. From 1st - 14th July, those who purchase a piece from the RAW for the Oceans collection at participating stores, can enter the prize draw.
