The Mobo-winning rapper J Hus has pleaded not guilty in court today (20 July) after being charged with knife possession.
The Guardian reports that today at his Snaresbrook crown court hearing he denied the knife possession charge, and was released on bail.
His arrest caused conflict with his live performances, leading to the rapper apologising on socials for having to cancel shows.
Been seeing a lot of support from fans, artists and family. I appreciate everything, Trust me. Shoutout my team for the work behind the scenes. Also sorry for the cancelled live dates I’ve missed out on.— J HUS (@Jhus) July 4, 2018
Time to finish the album.
His set at London's Wireless festival was filled in by fellow grime rappers Krept & Konan.
Renowned for singles "Bouff Daddy", "Did You See" and more recentlty "Dark Vader", J Hus has had masses of support from fans and fellow musicians, including the likes of Stormzy and Lethal Bizzle.
