Grime artist, Giggs, does not seem to be fond of the pair and their pompous attitude, he has sparked up a feud after making allegations of Krept and Konan being ‘frauds’, and accused them of ‘glory hunting’. The quarrel began after Krept made an Instagram post about DigDat’s Air Force Remix (featuring Krept & Konan) reaching Top 20 in the UK singles chart.
The words that seemed to have upset Giggs were, “1-0 to the culture @bouncerplaydirty proud of you my bro. 10 years ago Gipset days man would never of saw this coming.” The pair seemed to have related the success of the track and of drill music in general back to themselves and their workload. Giggs is seen as a godfather to grime and drill music, therefore, Krept’s remark was sure to hurt his ego.
Giggs’ response to the comment was rather resentful, “Hope you got a permit for all that Glory Hunting, Pathetic. Goal hanging N**as. You both make me sick. Forever talkin shit that ain’t even facts. Now your tryin a jump on the yutes hyoe and act like your responsible as well. Frauds.”
The comment by the ‘Whippin Excursion’ rapper was shortly removed. However, it is unclear whether the rapper regretted what he said and deleted the comment himself or whether Krept was too embarrassed and decided to take it down.
This has not been the first time that the two have done some minor bragging about themselves. As only last week, Krept took to Twitter and made a series of tweets regarding the lack of appreciation and credit him and Konan receive for the change they have bought about to the UK grime/drill scene. One of the tweets said, “Man helped change the game are u mad. Before young kingz majority of artists from our scene was trying to get pop records for radio and tv and FAILING. Me and konan literally said fuck this shit and made young kingz and that independent release changed the game,”
Anxiety builds as we await the duo’s response to what Giggs had to say.
