J Hus Interview
Updated: Jun 20, 2017
Having just jumped on French Montana and Swae Lee’s summer anthem “Unforgettable” with JAE5 and his own idiosyncratic lilt, Hus represents one of the only British rappers that can mount a challenge to getting featured on stateside charts. But while he’s taken a sonic palette taken from all over the globe, his international acclaim is still pending. With festival slots this summer and a European tour lined up for later this year, we caught up with the rising UK rapper to talk through his debut project, working with Jhené Aiko and whether he’s Wenger In or Wenger Out.
Firstly, congratulations on Common Sense. Are you happy with how it’s been received?
Thanks, yeah I feel really good. The reception’s been great, some good feedback. We’ve got top 10. I’m proud. It’s done everything I wanted it to do.
What were your personal expectations, if any, before the album dropped?
I didn’t really have any expectations, but I had certain goals which I wanted it to achieve. I wanted to show everyone that I am one of the most diverse artists in the UK; that even though I do all these crazy melodies and that, I can still rap… I wanted to make good music, and have certain songs with good messages in there, like “Spirit.” And, obviously, just represent the UK in the best way I can. So those were my main goals, and I think I’ve achieved that with the album. And I was in the studio when I heard the news about getting Top 10, working on the next project.
What was your main motivation behind the album?
Just life in general. Anything in life. Most of the songs are experience, like … This is the way I write, I just go do things, I’ll experience something, I’ll write about what I went through that day or thoughts in my mind throughout the day. Yeah, so it’s generally just life and I do what I do, what I experience in my life. I think it’s just crazy diverse, and set new levels for myself. It’s just a sound that no one’s really heard before. I’m advancing my sound. That’s what I mean by next level that this … I mean this is an album you can’t compare it to no other album.
You wear the ugly tag as a badge of honor. Has that attitude got you to where you are today?
I guess you could say that … I’m just embracing my ugliness so I don’t really care what no one thinks. I’m doing my thing. So yeah, I guess it has helped me come this far.
When exactly was the moment for you when you realized that you were blowing up or you were hitting those levels?
From the beginning, from when I first started, it’s always been something distant. It’s been steps. There’s been steps from when I first started … the first freestyle release, the reaction of it was amazing. And it just keeps getting better. It kept getting better, and better, and better. So now, it’s like there’s no limit.
What were your other milestones?
I started basically summer of 2014. I was releasing tunes on SoundCloud and that, but by … That was by September … I stopped releasing tunes on SoundCloud. Maybe October. I released a free style and went from there, and once I released that freestyle, other freestyle YouTube channels started contacting me so I started doing more link up TV, SBTV.
So you, Abra Cadabra, Belly Squad, Mostack and a host of other UK rappers are all blending different sounds together into your own unique styles. Is that something that you were kind of exposed to when you were growing up, or is it just kind of an East London thing?
Yeah, I guess so cause everything that I’m influenced by I just put it in the music and create a new sound using different vibes. I grew up on all different kinds of music, I just used that to influence my own music.
Who do you think’s the next to blow up out of the UK?
There’s a lot of talent coming through. I rate Dave and Nines a lot though.
