Interview: Stevie Johnson Talks Buffalo Bills, Being The Most Based Athlete, and His Rap Career

That's an interesting mix, especially with Adele being on there. These are albums that you enjoy listening to, but what do you listen to before a game? What are you guys playing in the locker room?

Mostly everything that I just said is what I’m listening to. [Before games] I’m listening to A$AP, Big Sean, and Kanye.

 

Deion Sanders is the greatest athlete rapper. I think he was the first to do it and how he did it was great. He was true to himself.

 

Who do you think some of the greatest athlete rappers are?

I've got to say besides me, Deion Sanders. I believe he sold a lot of records. I think he was the first to do it and how he did it was great. He was true to himself. And everybody talking about this “swag,” that was Deion Sanders before anything. I’m gonna keep Deion up there. A lot of people tried it. Kobe tried it and I don’t think that worked out. Shaq did his thing, I know he can do a little bit, but it was nothing like Deion Sanders though.

If it was up to you, would you win the Super Bowl or become the greatest rapper ever?

Man, I would definitely become th—no, win the Super Bowl.

Do you have any future music projects coming up? Is there anything that you’re working on?

Yeah. Right now, me and Ya Boy, we’ll be working on a mixtape. It should be done coming soon. We’ve got a few songs done but I’m looking forward to it.

 

Everybody always talks about hot chicken wings and everything, I go to Big Tree Inn. It’s right next to Ralph Wilson Stadium. That’s where I go to get my wings.

 

We'll be looking for it. We're sure Bills fans are curious as to what you do during your time off while in Buffalo. What are some of your favorite places to hit up in the city?

I like to go to the Bedrock Eatery. It’s right there on the water, right in the Blasdell area. I think that’s a pretty good place. Pearl Street Grill is always a good live place. I have little functions there. Everybody always talks about hot chicken wings and everything, I go to Big Tree Inn. It’s right next to Ralph Wilson Stadium. That’s where I go to get my wings.

Seriously, even over Duff’s and Anchor Bar?

Yeah, I’ve been to Anchor Bar. I’ve been to Duff’s. But I think the wings at Big Tree Inn are better.

Your team is 3-4 but still in the hunt since the division-leading Patriots are only 4-3. What can your fans expect from you the rest of this season?

I can just promise mad energy and excitement. You’ll see me working, working to get a win. You might see some frustration but that’s just how I play. I'll be mad, so don’t take it personal. You’re gonna see a guy out there that’s ready to win and uplift the City of Buffalo
