UK rappers Krept and Konan have revealed details of their upcoming album, ‘Revenge Is Sweet’. The announcement comes ahead of the duo’s huge UK and Ireland, November tour.
Krept, whose real name is Casyo Johnson, and Konan, whose real name is Karl Wilson, revealed that their new album, ‘Revenge Is Sweet’, will be released on the 1st of November 2019. The UK rap duo released a preview by new Krept freestyle ‘Morley’s Freestyle’, and a video, which was filmed outside the Thornton Heath branch of legendary titular chicken shop Morley’s.
Krept and Konan will hit the road, for an eight day tour with shows across the UK and Ireland, in Dublin, on the 23rd of November 2019, before heading to Nottingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, and Bristol. The eight-day tour will conclude, in London, on the 5th of December 2019.
The announcement of the new album, ‘Revenge Is Sweet’, comes after Krept was the recent victim of a stabbing. The incident took place backstage, after a brawl brook out, at the BBC Radio 1 Xtra concert, in Birmingham, last week, which resulted in the concert being abandoned.
Responding to the news Krept took to social media to reassure fans, saying: “My people thanks for the messages. I’m good, ill be back in no time.”
The Soth London duo’s upcoming album, ‘Revenge Is Sweet’, is set to follow their highly politicised song-and-film release ‘Ban Drill‘, which they shared back, in June. The 10-minute short film was a response to the misconception that drill songs spark real-life violence.
Speaking about the misconception that drill songs influence real-life violence, Krept said: “[We] really needed to do this as we know how important the situation is. People have a perception of drill music. [They] don’t get it and understand it.”
Continuing he said: “We thought, let’s paint the picture and do it from the perspective of people that are from it. How can you judge it if you’re not from it? [The song and film are] for people to see the effect of what would happen if they banned this music. They could stop the next Dr. Dre. There wouldn’t be no positive youth direction if they banned it.”
