Hotly tipped British urban duo Krept & Konan will make their Middle East debut tomorrow with a show at Atlantis The Palm club N’Dulge.
They’ll appear at the venue’s No1 Fridays night, before hitting the city for a number of yet-to-be announced performances.
The pair are promoting new album The Long Way Home, their first for a major music label, which shot straight to number two on pre-sales on iTunes the week before its release.
Set to go on sale on Virgin Records/Uni on 6 July, it includes collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Emeli Sande, Rick Ross and Jeremih, who features on their latest single, Freak of the Week. That track’s currently on the playlist of the BBC’s urban music station, Radio 1Xtra.
Hailing from South London, Casyo ‘Krept’ Johnson and Karl ‘Konan’ Wilson have promoted their mixtapes and built up their presence on YouTube to attract millions of followers, a strategy that helped them win a support slot on British rapper Skepta’s UK tour.
