Today record-breaking rap duo Krept & Konan announce they will be releasing their highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ on 1st November 2019. To mark the announcement, Krept & Konan have dropped Krept’s ‘Morley’s Freestyle’ with accompanying visual filmed outside Morely’s in Thornton Heath. Watch/ Share it here.
The release of Krept & Konan’s second studio album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ will precede their upcoming headline nationwide UK tour which will kick off on 23rd November at Olympic Theatre, Dublin and wrap up on 5th December at The O2, London. The album announcement comes hot on the heels of Krept & Konan fronting BBC Docuseries, The Rap Game UK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty.
I Spy ft. Headie One and K Trap, the first single to be lifted from ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ debuted at #18 in the UK charts on release over the summer, making it Krept & Konan’s second Top 20 single. It followed the release of Ban Drill (with its accompanying Rapman directed short film), which addressed the controversial move by the State and the Police to ban Drill music. Around the release of Ban Drill, Krept & Konan launched a change.org petition (asking the CPS to ‘stop silencing musicians’) and were invited by Diane Abbott MP to the Houses of Parliament to debate whether or not censoring Drill music and prosecuting Drill artists is an effective way to combat crime.
In 2017 Krept and Konan made history with 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS, when they became the first act ever to have two mixtapes simultaneously enter the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums chart. They’ve now notched up a #2 album, two top 10 mixtapes (with 7 DAYS now certified silver), one platinum single (Freak Of The Week ft. Jeremih), three silver singles, and a total of over half a billion streams. The past eighteen months alone has seen Krept & Konan sell out a headline show at Alexandra Palace, perform main slots at Wireless and Reading & Leeds Festivals, and successfully launch their restaurant Crepes & Cones in their native Croydon.
