Bigstar Johnson Opens Up on Forthcoming Album “Me & Mines”


Ahead of the release of his forthcoming album Me & Mine and a new deal, Bigstar Johnson has opened up on the album. The rapper took a short break to refine his sound and has returned with a new single featuring Kwesta.

“It’s the time now to be excited about who we are, no one else can claim this sound like us…I’m embracing our culture because I feel like it’s the time now to embrace who we are. It’s a very homegrown sounding album…I’m the type of artist who’s tryna position myself as a global artist as opposed to just a local one…I want people to know, every song we worked hard, and everything on that song was intentional, we didn’t write four bars to pass time, we wrote those 4 bars because we wanted to say something, everything is intentional.” he said.

Bigstar says he needs to create something new after being famed for “The Hustle” throughout his career.  “I need to create new highlights, I feel like France for me was the biggest highlight compared to the hustle, however, to my country, The Hustle was the biggest highlight, so it’s just about highlights and I believe the album will do that because it’s so far from the Big Star there but so close to what people fell in love with…”

The artwork framing his daughters’ sonogram on the cover of his upcoming album highlights the most crucial moments in his life that he addresses in the album, talking about the relationship he’s had with his mother, the phases of confusion when he was young and evolving into the man that he’s become today.

“Pretty much the artwork was just the evolution of Big Star, but in each and every one of those pictures, there’s a certain moment in my life that meant sometime…”

If you’re a true Big Star Johnson fan, you’d know that he considers each bar in his lyrics and as he’s now found himself in the music industry, his upcoming album will only be better.

“I figured out how I want to position myself in the game, I’m tryna be Big Brother the game, I’m not against the era being about adlibs and whatever, but I know it’s gonna pass, just like crump passed and time exposes everything, I focus on content and the quality of the music because I’m focused on lasting the test of time, I’m really not focused on being the biggest thing right now because when I die, something’s gotta rep’ me, my verses have gotta rep’ me…”
