Rustie – real name Russell Whyte – announced he would no longer be playing gigs due to “addiction and mental health problems” in 2015.

Taking to Twitter at the time he wrote: “Due to addiction & mental health problems, all gigs in the near future are cancelled. Very very sorry & hope to see u all soon.”

He added that he “won’t be posting or responding on social media personally for a while. Any posts will come from management.”

Also in 2015, Rustie released a track created in his hospital bed titled ‘160 Hospital Riddim’ Tweeting at the time: “They keep giving me free extra livez! So here another free track, made after waking in A&E!”
