J Hus has pleaded not guilty to possession of a lock knife in a public place.
The Stratford MC, who released his Mercury-nominated debut album ‘Common Sense’ last year, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court this morning (July 20), where he denied carrying a weapon ”without good reason or lawful authority” after he was detained by police and charged after officers stopped and searched the car he was travelling in and discovered a bladed article in Stratford on June 21.
He was released on bail and is due to appear in front of the court again on November 15 for a pre-trial review.
The trial is then scheduled to take place some time in the two-week period beginning December 10, reports The Guardian.

He was arrested last month but freed ahead of his scheduled slot at Wireless Festival earlier this month.
But organisers shortly after announced he would no longer be appearing at the festival, “due to unforeseen circumstances”.
The MC’s slot was instead filled by Krept & Konan.
Hus had also been set to perform at TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow, but was forced to cancel the set due to his arrest. His slot at the festival was taken by Glaswegian musician Gerry Cinnamon.
Hus released his debut EP ‘Big Spang’ back earlier ths year.
