Rapper J Hus Remanded In Custody For Carrying A Knife

J Hus got some major Shine last night during the BET Awards. Too bad he's in jail.

(AllHipHop News) British rapper J Hus has been denied bail following his arrest for carrying a knife in London last Thursday.

The "Did You See" star, real name Momodou Jallow, was taken into custody after his car was pulled over by police in his native Stratford.

A search of the vehicle reportedly turned up the weapon, and Hus, 23, was charged with being in possession of a knife or bladed article.

The Brit Award nominee appeared at Thames Magistrates' Court on Friday, when he was refused bail, and ordered to remain behind bars until his trial on July 20.

The news has thrown Hus' summer plans into jeopardy as he had been due to perform at a series of shows, including London's Wireless Festival on July 7 in the coming weeks.

Representatives for the MC have yet to comment on his legal trouble.

Just last night, J Hus was nominated as one of the best new international artists during the BET Awards.

However, Nigerian singer Davido took home the prize.
