After a long hiatus, Big Star Johnson is ready to make a comeback in the SA Hip Hop scene with his upcoming album titled “CEASER.” However, the rapper recently shed some light on the dark side of the music industry in an interview on the Engineer Your Life Podcast with Lungelo KM.
Big Star revealed that during his time away from the spotlight, only his younger brother checked on him and offered support. “My younger brother, is definitely a big part of my support structure.
He’s a fan first, so it’s refreshing to have conversations with him,” Big Star said. “He’s a critical thinker, a realist. Having someone like that carried me through the tough times.”
When asked why he didn’t mention any industry figures reaching out to him, Big Star expressed his disappointment in the lack of genuine people in the music industry. “The industry is a trippy place, people aren’t genuine,” he explained.
“I don’t blame them. If they feel like they won’t gain anything from working with me, that’s okay. But it’s important to remember that the best things happen when geniuses come together.”
While Big Star acknowledged having professional relationships in the industry, he made it clear that they were primarily for business purposes rather than forming personal friendships.
“I’ve had close-knit relationships in the industry, but they were for a purpose, not for friendship,” he remarked. It’s disheartening to hear about the lack of support and genuine connections in the music industry.
Artists like Big Star Johnson often face challenges when trying to navigate the complex world of fame and success. However, it’s important to remember that not everyone in the industry is the same.

Big Star Johnson’s journey serves as a reminder that the music industry is not always what it seems. Behind the glitz and glamour, there are struggles and obstacles that artists face daily.
It’s important for us as fans to be aware of these challenges and to support our favorite artists through their highs and lows.
So, let’s rally behind Big Star Johnson and other artists who have experienced the dark side of the industry. Together, we can create a community that celebrates talent, authenticity, and genuine connections. And who knows, maybe we can help change the industry for the better.
