Krept & Konan Stream Album Featuring Ed Sheeran, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa & More
Set to release their debut album The Long Way Home on July 10, South London hip-hop duo Krept & Konan went ahead and made the 19 track LP available for streaming. With guest features from artists like Ed Sheeran, YG, Jeremih, Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross, fellow Brit MC Skepta and even "Konan's Mum," the album is chock full of different voices that bring credibility to the duo and diversity to the project.
With an underlying tone of dark sultriness, the album manages to maintain a sonic cohesion that is unapologetically experimental. Playing with trap beats in songs like "F.W.T.S. Active (Feat. Skepta)" that mellow out into fluffy tracks like "Dreams (Feat. Ed Sheeran)", Krept & Konan defy the boundaries of genre while showcasing the flexibility of their own.
This is a project that sticks with you, letting you live through the party and allowing you to linger after the fact. The Long Way Home leaves you with something to think about the next morning, as you set off on the road ahead.
