Jehst isn’t a postman
So a few months ago this video was bouncing around UK “urban” “music” forums and Twitter, depicting one-time minor hope of UK hip-hop Jehst being surreptitiously filmed working as a postman. This resulted in “bare jokes” on internet message boards, because obviously most UK rappers are in a higher rate tax bracket and can afford to buy mid-table Championship football teams with their yearly income so a video of Jehst having a second job was cause for giggles.
So did he join the pantheon with Charles Bukowski and Neil Webb and all those American spree killers in history’s greatest posties? Well, apparently not because it was a clever viral for his new single:
Really miss being “into” UKHH because the only special guest star in this video I recognise is Stig. For all I know everyone else in this video could be blowing up Suspect Packages on the regular. Might quit my job and smoke a shit tonne of weed while claiming social and dicking about on Protools so I can truly “re-enter” the UKHH mindset. Nah, this is nice and it’s nice to see him roll around my old manor outside the Brixton Ritzy. Shout out the old Pakistani dude who held out down late nights at Chicken Cottage, you saw me through many an evening back in the day.
