    His pivot toward interiority gives his songs a new dimension. His bars are simple, straightforward, and can occasionally lean toward fortune-cookie wisdom (“Get the bread, avoid the drama/You can avoid the feds but not the karma,” he raps on “Fight For Your Right”), but throughout the album, he seems to be growing more secure in himself.

    Big Conspiracy is Hus’s second chance – an album that proves he’s just as essential a part of UK music today as he was three years ago.

    A major step up for J Hus, and the first notable British rap album of the 2020s, Big Conspiracy was a well-deserved success, debuting at number one on the U.K. album chart and spawning several Top 40 hits.

    Full of unexpectedly bittersweet horns and electric guitar, his mellow confidence here eschews clutter and bombast.

He talk about issues in the industry, his lifestyle and he does this over mostly good beats and a jazz style sound. The only problem had with this album was that it lacked a strong narrative which would be cool to hear in future releases. 7/10. Expand
