Born and raised in East London, J Hus first started rapping in primary school. Inspired by the likes of Skepta and the burgeoning UK grime scene around him, he released his “15th Day” mixtape in July 2015. Spawning street anthems “No Lie” and “Dem Boy Paigon”, the mixtape won critical acclaim from the likes of Noisey, Complex and i-D, and earned J HUS a nomination for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the 2015 MOBO awards.
J Hus’s debut album was a UK top 10 and was recently Triple J feature Album.
Boasting an ebullient blend of Dancehall, Afrobeat, Grime, Rap, Garage and R&B, “COMMON SENSE” is a musical revelation, an emotional rollercoaster ride into the inner musings of an inner-city musician. As well as his signature sound – some say UK Afrobeats, others AfroGrime – there are nods to others influences too. Production over the entire album comes from Hus and long-term collaborator JAE5, with additional production on select tracks by Tiggs, Show & Prove, The Compozers, Mark Crown, TSB and iO.
