Big Star Johnson drops Sgubu video.
We are eagerly waiting for Big Star Johnson’s debut album Mes & Mines to drop, while we waiting though, the hip-hop star decided to bless us with a video offering today. He just dropped the video to his single Sgubu featuring King of Hip Hop, Kwesta this morning. The visuals are beyond dope.
GQ got a chance to chat with the star earlier to talk music, style and everything in between.
GQ: Let’s take it back a bit. Do you recall the first time you fell in love with music?
BSJ: Yes I do. It was Bone Thugs and Harmony ‘Paper Paper’. I’ve always had great music playing at home. I was intrigued but it wasn’t until I heard that song that I had a song that I fell in love with music.
GQ: South Africa was first introduced to you as the winner of the Vuzu Hustle in 2015. In one sentence can you describe your journey over the past 3 years leading up to your debut album?
BSJ: Growing up in the limelight ain’t easy but lessons learned slowly is better than lessons not learned at all.
GQ: Why the album titled Me & Mines?
BSJ: Me & Mines is an album about one weekend “me and mines” went through… Me and my people, my thoughts, my experiences… To you and yours. I really focused on nostalgia. I’m taking people on a trip.
GQ: You’ve just released Sgubu with Kwesta. The music video is looking really nice. What message do you want people to take away from it?
BSJ: Don’t forget where we come from and let’s celebrate our history instead of compete with it.
GQ: One word that describes your style?
GQ: What’s your favorite clothing item?
BSJ: My sneaker collection.
GQ: What does your daily grooming routine consist of?
BSJ: Daily? Brushing my teeth and taking a shower. I’m simple… smell good, rock a fresh pair of kicks and dope cap. You can’t go wrong!
GQ: What’s the one grooming or style item you can’t live without?
BSJ: A fresh pair of sneakers.
