J Hus has reportedly been granted bail following his arrest last month for possession of a knife.
The Stratford MC, who released his Mercury-nominated debut album ‘Common Sense’ last year, was arrested on June 21 in east London by police. He was charged with “suspicion of being in possession of a knife or bladed article” after police stopped the rapper’s car in Stratford.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan police said at the time: “Officers in a marked police car stopped a vehicle in International Way, E20, at about 12:35pm on Thursday 21 June. The occupants of the vehicle were searched and a 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a knife/bladed article.”
He was initially denied bail at Thames Magistrates Court a day after his arrest, and had been set to remain in custody until his scheduled trial on July 20.
However, J Hus has now been granted bail after lodging a £100,000 security at Snaresbrook Crown Court (via Court News UK). He will still face trial for the aforementioned charges.
The MC has been freed ahead of his scheduled slot at Wireless Festival this weekend, where he is billed to play on the Saturday leg (July 7) of the festival.
He had been set to perform at TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow last weekend, but was forced to cancel the set.
