What does the sleng hit the big time mean? (in sentence - He really hit the big time in 1994).

Thank you verrrrrry much for explaining me that! :)
  • To "hit the big time" means to become successful on a higher (and better) level.

    If we are speaking of a musician, and he hit the big time in 1994, it would mean he got a major record deal or somehow achieved a new, higher level of fame and fortune.
