Rapper J Hus will face trial in December after denying carrying a knife in Stratford.
The music star, who won best song at the Mobo awards last year, sat with his head bowed in the dock during most of Friday’s short hearing.
Earlier this month he tweeted an apology to fans for missing a number of live gigs, and thanked them for their support.
The rapper, appearing at Snaresbrook Crown Court under his real name of Momodou Jallow, pleaded not guilty to having a lock knife, without good reason or lawful authority, at International Way in Stratford, on June 21.
The 23-year-old, who is originally from Stratford but gave his address as Baldwin Drive in Peterborough, was released on bail to appear again on November 15 for a pre-trial review.
