He appeared in Snaresbrook Crown court on Friday and denied the single charge, according to Press Association.

AceShowbiz - British rapper J Hus pleaded not guilty to possessing a knife during a court hearing on Friday, July 20.

The "Did You See" star, real name Momodou Jallow, was taken into custody on June 21 after police allegedly found a weapon in his car after he was pulled over in Stratford, east London.

He appeared in Snaresbrook Crown court on Friday and denied the single charge, pleading not guilty to having a lock knife, without good reason or lawful authority, and spent the short hearing with his head bowed in the dock, according to Press Association.

The 23-year-old was released on bail and is due to appear in court on 15 November for a pre-trial review. The trial is set to take place in the two-week period beginning 10 December.

Following his arrest, the "Bad Boys" hitmaker was initially denied bail, with him being ordered to stay behind bars until Friday's hearing, but he was eventually released at the start of July after posting a $132,000 (£100,000) bond.

Under the bail terms, he was reportedly forbidden from entering certain areas of London, including Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Barking and Dagenham.

The hip-hop star subsequently dropped out of London's Wireless festival and TRNSMT festival in Glasgow, Scotland, and he took to Twitter to apologise for his cancelled performances at the start of July.

"Been seeing a lot of support from fans, artists and family. I appreciate everything, Trust me," he wrote. "Shoutout my team for the work behind the scenes. Also sorry for the cancelled live dates I've missed out on. Time to finish the album."
