Capri Sun and Wotsits

"Now me & him got beef and we no longer speak
Still walk his nan across the street
Still put that motherf*cker in a body bag
Still help his mother with her shopping bag"

J Hus - Leave Me
(From Common Sense album; 2017)

Roadrapfrobeats like du-du-du-du-du-du. Buncha choonz on this J Hus debut album, the best of which fit his aesthetic like a pair of Universal Works almond rocks fit your plates of meat (G.O.A.T socks or wot? #BuyBritish!) What's missing from the album, however, is Dem Boy Paigon and Lean & Bop; couldn't give a monkey's uncle that both songs are now 2 years old - the anthems that reputations are built on should always appear on debut albums, even if it's just as bonus tracks innit.

Amazed that I like the song with Tiggs Da Author on the hook.

Where else have I heard the piano from Fisherman? Know it, but can't place it 😞

Any examples of other reputation establishing anthems left off debut (rap) albums? I bet you've got some.

Deep Cover should have been on The Chronic

Props for putting me onto J Hus. Usually avoid grime like Ebola, but I find Common Sense refreshingly melodic and genuinely accessible, compared to what's commonly blaring out of the average youts' car speakers.
