Record-breaking rap duo Krept & Konan release I Spy featuring Headie Oneand K Trap.
I Spy, produced by BKay (Skengdo & AM, Digdat, Nines) is the first official single to be lifted from Krept & Konan’s highly anticipated second studio album. It features fellow South Londoner K Trap who released his No Magic mixtape (the follow up his critically acclaimed The Last Whip) last month, and Tottenham based Headie Onewho released new single Back To Basics (feat. Skepta) hot on the heels of performing at Glastonbury.
The accompanying music video for I Spy is directed by Wowa (Hardy Caprio, Ms Banks, Yxng Bane, Lady Leshurr).
Krept & Konan’s I Spy follows their release of Ban Drill last month (with its accompanying Rapman directed shortfilm), 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 year 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.
