A true homegrown star with global appeal – the man born Momodou Jallow rocketed from SB:TV to GQ cover star, east London to the O2 Arena, with the mega success of 2017’s Mercury, BRIT and MOBO Award nominated debut album Common Sense. Delivered with Hus’ inimitable charisma, the album’s eclectic voyage into the world of dancehall, rap, afrobeat and grime inaugurated the then 21 year-old as the voice of young black Britain.
Common Sense went Top 10 on release, while Hus’ recent 2019 collaborations with Skepta, Stormzy and Dave kept his presence hot and his seat warm at the table of UK music’s upper echelon. Having inspired a generation of diaspora teens to “Lean & Bop”, cementing a new wave of festival bookings, Hus is the prescient top boy of the charts, the dance and the streets. So what next?
Big Conspiracy, released Friday 24 January, 2020, is the next chapter.
After a well-documented fall from grace that included a stint in prison in early 2019, Hus studied up, became grown. The cheeky east Londoner introduced on songs like “Friendly” matured. As he elaborated to Wonderland in their 2019 cover story, "you’re gonna hear a more grown up Hus” on Big Conspiracy. “You’re gonna hear music with more meaning.”
Common Sense was Hus’ introduction, defining a sound – Big Conspiracy defines the mission.
