Today Krept & Konan release Pour Me Another One ft. Tabitha in celebration of an exceptional 2018 for the record-breaking duo.
Produced by AdotSkitz and EY, Pour Me Another One samples the 2000 released Garage classic and chart hit, Flowers by Sweet Female Attitude. The release is a timely nod to Krept & Konan’s upcoming biggest UK live show to date at Alexandra Palace, home to many iconic UK Garage nights during the noughties.
Aside from selling out the 10,000+ capacity Alexandra Palace, and two nights at the Kentish Town Forum, 2018 has seen Krept & Konan shut down the main stages at Wireless and Reading & Leeds Festivals over the summer, star in the highly anticipated independent film Intent 2 (alongside Adam Deacon, Ghetts and Dancehall superstar, Popcaan), launch their #PlayDirtyRadio show on Beats 1, and spearhead a Hennessy campaign encompassing a collaboration with Slaves recorded live at Abbey Road Studios.
All this alongside launching their own restaurant, Crepes & Cones in their home town of Croydon, with accompanying track Crepes & Cones ft Mostack.
Their exceptional year to date follows hot on the heels of Krept & Konan making chart history in 2017 with the release of mixtapes 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.
Krept & Konan’s Pour Me Another One ft. Tabitha is released today via DefJam in the U.S. and Virgin EMI in the U.K. and the rest of the world.
ABOUT KREPT & KONAN
Krept & Konan made chart history in 2017 with the release of mixtapes 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. 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 and boast features from the likes of J Hus, Skepta, Stormzy, Abra Cadabra, Jhene Aiko, Hudson East, Tory Lanez and more.
Krept & Konan have repeatedly broken records while consistently breaking ground – this recent record, is the third the duo have broken: In 2013 their Young Kingz mixtape 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. In 2015 their debut album The Long Way Home became the highest charting British Rap album in UK chart history after debuting at no. 2 in the official UK album charts.
Krept & Konan, who have received numerous awards (including a BET Award and five MOBO Awards), are universally acclaimed and respected within the global music community. They have collaborated with renowned MCs and singer-songwriters on both sides of the pond – including (but not limited to): Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign, Stormzy, Wiz Khalifa, Jeremiah, Skepta, Ed Sheeran and Emile Sande. Their ongoing critical acclaim and chart success has helped pave the way for the likes of J-Hus, Kojo Funds, Abra Cadbra, Yungen, Mo Stack and Section Boys (to name but a few): If Wiley is the Godfather of Grime, then Krept & Konan are the trailblazers of a second generation/ wave in British urban music artists – from Rap to Afrobeat.
Krept & Konan have a huge live following. In addition to performing on the main stages at multiple festivals (V, Wireless, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds), they have embarked on numerous sold-out UK & European headline tours, most recently performing two back to back headline shows at Kentish Town Forum ahead of their sold out date at Alexandra Palace in October 2018.
Aside from a busy live schedule 2018 has seen Krept & Konan launch their own restaurant, Crepes & Cones (in Croydon). Since its launch in May, business has been thriving. Their second studio album is set for release in 2019.
