J Hus Drops Stellar New EP 'Big Spang'

The British-Gambian MC returns with a 3-track EP just in time for summer listening.

J Hus returns with his first release since 2017's Common Sense, and he does not disappoint.

His latest, Big Spang—which he dropped last night—is a three-track rollout featuring the tracks "Dark Vader," "Scene" and "Dancing Man." It's brief, but offers a full listening experience nonetheless, with J Hus effortlessly switching up the production and flow with each transition.

"Dark Vader," is a dancehall-inspired pop number, while "Scene," is a knocking grime track. The EP's final song, "Dancing Man" is a chilled yet dance-worthy jam as its title suggests. We'd say he's 3 for 3 on "Big Spang."
