There are no known siblings of J Hus, although some reports claim he has a younger sister. J Hus has a stepfather, which means that his single mother later found love in the arms of another man. J Hus has long been a hustler, so the tall hustler sold marked doughnuts in the playground during his school days. As a result, he gained a reputation as a hustler at school, and because he was widely known as J at the time, his name was added to Hus – which explains the “Hus” is his nickname.
J Hus started his musical career in 2013, but at some point, he felt frustrated and almost stopped playing music because he didn’t achieve the hoped-for result.

This session, which played a major role in making him famous in the UK, was followed by the release of “Lean and Bop”. Fortunately, “Lean and Bop” soon broke some records with six million streams. With such a massive positive result, J Hus felt compelled to drop “Daily Duppy” around the same time. However, after releasing “15th Day”, a mixtape, around the same time, the rapper got into trouble when he was stabbed five times in London. The attack landed him in a hospital in September 2015.
