    Big Conspiracy is an album that certifies J Hus as one of the most influential artists in UK music.

    ‘Big Conspiracy’ never fully sits in one place, this ever-evolving puzzle with J Hus at the core. He wears many masks, but it’s often when these slip that ‘Big Conspiracy’ is at its most viral, and revealing.

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

    The tension between invigorating, often exhilarating joyful music and disconcertingly bleak subject matter may be one hardwired into hip-hop tradition, but J Hus's innovative, genre-defying style and evocative, elliptical lyrics prove it can still be an intoxicating combination.

    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.

    Decent beats and melodies wasted on a mediocre MC. The boring rhyming is disguised by the quality of the vocal melodies and production, theDecent beats and melodies wasted on a mediocre MC. The boring rhyming is disguised by the quality of the vocal melodies and production, the content is not interesting: childish whining about being judged for breaking laws, whining about his own self, while denying responsibility and threatening violence, etc. Expand
