The thug who stabbed U.K. rapper Professor Green in the neck was jailed for eight years on Thursday.
Anthony Jones, 26, slashed the hip-hop star with a broken bottle during a scuffle at London’s Cargo nightclub in 2009.

The I Need You Tonight hitmaker – real name Stephen Manderson – feared he was dying as blood gushed from a six-inch wound, and even phoned his family to say goodbye.

Jones, who has previous convictions for carrying knives, denied wounding with intent but was convicted in October and he has now been sentenced to eight years behind bars.
