UK hip hop sensation J-Hus has triumphed at the NME Awards 2018 by scooping Best Album in this year’s honours.

The rapper, whose album Common Sense was also nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2017, scooped up the coveted award as various others from the burgeoning worlds of UK hip hop and grime were also honoured.

Grime pioneer Wiley picked up a gong for Best Book, for his Eskiboy memoirs, while Loyle Carner was honoured as Best British Solo Artist after a storming year in 2017.

In terms of bands, Alt-J picked up award for Best British Band, with bad boy rockers Kasabian picking up Best Live Artist, while Craig David and Bastille won Best Collaboration for their storming hit I Know You.

Once again, Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis scooped the award for Best Festival (of course).

Upon receiving the award, Emily said ‘We’re having a break this year, but we hope to see you again in the next couple of years,’ as they picked up their award.

And let us not forget – Liam Gallagher picked up the award for Godlike Genius.

However, on the red carpet before the awards, Liam was asked what he thought of the current state of play of rock music.

‘It’s full of divs, looking at numbers and being concerned with free clothes. I don’t give a shit whether they give it to me [Godlike Genius award] or not.

‘I’ve not turned into a dick head – I’ve always been one,’ he shrugged.
