J Hus has broken down his journey into becoming one of the UK’s biggest new artists to Clash Magazine.
The 21-year-old east Londoner recounts a pivotal summer night in 2014 when he was sat with Moe, a longtime friend who was studying Business Information at Portsmouth University at the time, in which the two were discussing their futures. “He was just like, ‘You know what? I think you can do it. You can actually take this music thing further,” Hus recalls to Clash. “I was like ‘What? Are you going to help me? You might as well be my manager!’”
The magazine also spoke to regular Hus collaborator and producer, JAE5, on the first time he met the artist: “He’d sit through the course and at the end of the day we’d let him record,” says JAE5. “But he figured out it wasn’t worth spending the whole day there to get 30 minutes at the end of the day, so he was not on it!”
