Pop/grime artist J Hus visited Bournemouth’s 02 Academy on Saturday for his Common Sense tour.

The 21-year-old rapper, Momodou Jallow, shot into the spotlight with the release of his new album Common Sense in May this year, which featured at number 6 on the UK album chart.

He has also featured on hit single Samantha with fellow upcoming rapper Dave, and on the album of national grime sensation, Stormzy.

Opening with the hit single that shares the same name as his album and tour, the British-Gambian star eased the crowd into the performance with his recognisable brand of playful, afro-beat rap.

He wore a pair of loose fitting jeans and a casual polo, contrasting with the flashy Benz equipped with a J HUS number plate in the middle of his set. Surprisingly, the rapper had little communication with the audience, and although they sang along to every song, it wasn’t until the beginning of Mash Up that the packed-out venue really started to bounce. A few mosh pits broke out among the more active members of the crowd to the chorus of clear fan-favourite Clartin. J HUS took to the barriers to give the frontline a chance to sing along to Friendly, the crowd swarming to the front eager to have their moment with the young star. The silence that followed an unexpected exit turned to screams of euphoria as he closed the show with his chart hit Did You See, the audience singing along to every word.

It was an understated performance, J HUS let his music do the work for an already established fan base and left a sweet taste for what is to come in the surely bright future of this upcoming rap talent.
