Responding to news of the charge, fellow rapper Lethal Bizzle wrote: J Hus. The boy has been to hell and back. Being stabbed is a life changing experience. Im sure he felt he needed to protect himself. I hope the judge takes all into account. Im gonna sit with him at some point and have a grown chat. Hes a star, needs to move different.

Big man ting. Its mine and other olders responsibility to help coach the younger generation. We wasnt lucky enough to have this option. We are the blue print, and we need to help guide them not to make the mistakes we did.

J Hus is currently scheduled to appear at Wireless festival on 7 July.
