WATCH: BigStar Johnson exclusive interview!


Rapper and season one winner of Vuzu’s The Hustle BigStar Johnson dropped his much anticipated EP earlier today. And because Connect’s got the juice, we sat down with the star to discuss his new music and a few other thangs. 

The 25-year old Get it hit-maker first lit up our screens back in 2015 when he entered the first season of VUZU’s, The Hustle. Speaking on his motivation to enter the competition, BigStar says it was actually a friend who spotted the competition advert that led to him entering the competition on a whim. And we’re glad he did!
