Pioneering UK rappers Krept & Konan release simultaneously the first two tracks to be lifted from 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS via Virgin EMI.
Wo Wo Wo, taken from 7 DAYS is produced by EY and was premiered yesterday by Charlie Sloth on BBC 1Xtra. The video, shot in London, is directed by KLVDR (see below).
For Me, lifted from 7 NIGHTS and also produced by EY, was premiered last night by MistaJam on BBC 1Xtra and sees KONAN sing alongside rapping counterpart, KREPT. The video, also directed by KLVDR, was shot in Greece over the summer and features a guest appearance from world-renowned model and popular Instagrammer, Bria Myles (who was mentioned in Drake’s track, From Time).
A UK first (no other British artist has released two mixtapes on the same day), 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS reflect the two sides of KREPT & KONAN’s signature sound. While 7 DAYS boasts harder edged, grittier club tracks and features from J Hus, Skepta, Stormzy, Abra Cadabra and more; 7 NIGHTS showcases smoother, R n’ B inflected, sultry jams and guest spots from Jhene Aiko, Hudson East and Tory Lanez.
The release of 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS signals a welcome return for the trailblazing duo whose ongoing critical acclaim and chart success has helped paved the way for the likes of J-Hus, Kojo Funds, Abra Cadbra, Yungen, Mo Stack and Section Boys (to name a few). From the 2013 release of their Young Kingz mixtape which shot into the top 20 of the Official UK album charts (earning them a world record for the Highest-Charting UK album by an Unsigned Act), through to the 2015 release of their debut album The Long Way Home (which became the highest charting British Rap album in UK chart history after debuting at no. 2 in the official UK album charts), KREPT & KONAN have repeatedly broken records while consistently breaking ground.
Since the release the critically acclaimed The Long Way Home, KREPT & KONAN have hit the road extensively, embarking on a sold out headline UK tour and a pan European double headline tour with Ty Dolla $ign, and performing at multiple festivals (including, most recently, V Festival 2017). All in addition to featuring on the Mobo Award winning remix of Abra Cadabra’s Robbery and MoStack’s Liar Liar remix alongside J Hus.
