In his debut album, Me & Mines, South African rapper BigStar Johnson links up with kwaito, R&B; and jazz.
“There’s music that we had back in the days that I feel like we can’t just give up on,”
he tells a room full of journalists during the album’s listening party a few days before its release.
“There’s sounds that we created as a people, as a country. I feel like we can’t give up on those sounds.”
Me & Mines is a ’90s and early 2000s music fan’s inside joke.
From the quotes he references to the samples he uses and the album’s overall mood.
The album features songs like “Understand Pt. II,” “Two Cups,” “Cold Rock a Party” “Closer”, “Calling” and moe.
Me & Mines officially announces Big star’s arrival as a versatile artist who prefers to make music that comes naturally to him.
“I really believe we can’t all sound the same,”
“We can’t. Be as different as possible. Fitting is not always the best thing.”
