The duo Krept and Konan otherwise known as “Play Dirty” are two very talented artists from south London who are killing the UK underground scene with their music, crazy punch lines and metaphors that are out of this world which attracted a huge fan base. Due to their versatility they create variations of good creative music,Therefore cannot be put into 1 genre as they have done such a variety from,rap, hip hop, grime, house and pop.
The two artists started doing music from a very young age as a hobby in their own local neighbourhoods, Krept from Norwood, and Konan from Thornton Heath. As time went on Krept and Konan became friends outside of music and in due time realised we both had a musical talent in mc/rapping. It was then only a matter of time when they both came together to make a few songs for the fun of it. The songs had the streets going crazy, everybody had them on their phones, it is then when they realised their music potential. The two then started doing music videos, freestyles and mix tapes, and during this time the success grew massively. Now they have a massive fan base, millions of views on YouTube, an award-winning C.D “Tsunami” which climbed to #2 in the itunes hip hop chart and can still be purchased from itunes. They have worked with a variety of successful artist from Chipmunk, Wretch 32, Wiley, Giggs and many more. It is about time they take their music that 1 step further into the mainstream.
Their newest single finds them trading bars with none other than Rick Ross (the rapper) over a track that sounds very Maybach Musicish but the song bangs. It took a couple of listens for me to get past the accents but bottom line, these cats got bars no doubt about it.
