Who is J Hus?
Momodou Jallow, who is better known by his stage name J Hus, is an English rapper who is best known for his 2017 song Did You See which hit the top 10 on the UK chart.
J Hus was born and raised in Stratford, London, by his single mother. He began rapping at a young age, inspired by US rapper 50 Cent and was encouraged by some of his friends to try and go professional.
His career began with some freestyle raps which he published online back in 2015. He began to make his name with tracks like #Rated and Dem Boy Paigon.
In September 2015, J Hus was stabbed five times, but this couldn't stop his desire to make music.
His biggest break came from being featured on Stormzy's Gang Signs and Prayers album in 2017. In the same year, he was featured on Dave's Samantha.
The rapper's debut album was released in 2017 and was well received by fans.
Why was J Hus arrested?
J Hus was arrested on June 21, 2018, after carrying a lock knife.
The Mobo award-winner was held by cops who stopped him in a car close to the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, East London.
Although he did not have a driving licence, the Audi was registered to him and was being driven by his girlfriend when it was stopped.
The rapper was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a bladed article and taken to a local police station.
When was J Hus jailed?
In December 2018 J Hus was sentenced to eight months in jail after admitting to carrying a knife in a public place.
Court Judge Sandy Canavan said she would be failing in her duty if she did not jail him, describing him as a "role model to many".
She said the rapper had failed to leave his old life behind: "This, in such a young life, is the fourth occasion when you have gone out armed with a knife."
