Thumbnail for 89907

This week’s featured artist is J Hus.

We caught up with him to find out a little bit more about his music.

Check it out…

I grew up in Stratford and my music isn’t defined by a genre – I’m creating my own. It is inspired by Grime, US Rap, UK Rap, Afrobeat and Dancehall though.

Catchy, different, trend starting.

My manager (Moe) saw me perform and really pushed me to take it further.

I used to listen to a lot of 50 Cent, Michael Jackson and Skepta growing up.

I usually record my ideas and take em into studio with Jae5 and then they create a beat around it. I collaborate with Jae5 a lot on my music.

A lot of energy, though I’m trying to add more structure into my upcoming shows.

When I performed at Rip the Runway the crowd was insane. Was the moment I knew I wanted to make it further.

I remember coming out of my block of flats and seeing Konan (from Krept & Konan) chilling in Benz and getting to meet him for the first time.

The Weeknd, Beyonce, Rihanna.

Dates published here and check out my debut album Common Sense here.
