Krept & Konan

Today record-breaking rap duo Krept & Konan announce they will be releasing their highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ on 1st November 2019. To mark the announcement, Krept & Konan have dropped Krept’s ‘Morley’s Freestyle’ with accompanying visual filmed outside Morely’s in Thornton Heath. Watch it here.

The release of Krept & Konan’s second studio album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ will precedetheirupcoming headline nationwide UK tour which will kick off on 23rd November at Olympic Theatre, Dublin and wrap up on 5th December at The O2, London. The album announcement comes hot on the heels of Krept & Konan fronting BBC Docuseries, The Rap Game UK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty

I Spy ft. Headie One and K Trap, the first single to be lifted from ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ debuted at #18 in the UK charts on release over the summer, making it Krept & Konan’s second Top 20 single. It followed the release of Ban Drill (with its accompanying Rapman directed short film), 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 NIGHTSwhen 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.

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 HusSkeptaStormzyAbra CadabraJhene AikoHudson EastTory 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 RossTy Dolla $ignStormzyWiz KhalifaJeremiahSkeptaEd Sheeran and Emeli Sande. Their ongoing critical acclaim and chart success has helped pave the way for the likes of J-Hus, Kojo Funds, Abra Cadabra, 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. In the words of Stormzy, Krept & Konan are “UK rap royalty”.

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 shows at Kentish Town Forum and a triumphant sold out date at Alexandra Palace.

Aside from a busy live and recording schedule, the past eighteen months has seen Krept & Konan launch their own restaurant Crepes & Cones in Croydon, and (alongside Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Target) front BBC Docuseries, The Rap Game UK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty

BILLY RAY CYRUS
AND LIL NAS X WIN BET HIP HOP AWARDS

Billy Ray Cyrus is making room on the trophy shelf again as the BET Hip Hop Awards honors the Flatwoods, Kentucky singer-songwriter with two trophies for Best Collab, Duo or Group and Single of the Year with Lil Nas X on the record shattering 19-week No. 1 “Old Town Road” (remix, featuring Cyrus).

“Thank you to the BET Hip Hop Awards and hip hop/rap community for the Best Collab and Single of the Year wins. You kept OTR at No. 1 for 19 consecutive weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home and world. I’m dedicating these wins to Mr. Nipsey Hussle – a legend gone way too soon,” Cyrus shared.

Recently, Cyrus learned he was nominated in the Musical Event of the Year category with Lil Nas X during the 53rd CMA Awards after taking home two MTV VMA Moonmen for Song of the Year and Best Direction for Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix, featuring Cyrus).”

About Billy Ray Cyrus:
Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley. Recently, Cyrus has shattered records with Lil Nas X with the global smash, “Old Town Road,” which has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 consecutive weeks. Returning to his Kentucky roots, BBR Music Group/BMG released Cyrus’s new single on July 19 with emerging artist Johnny McGuire titled, “Chevys and Fords,” which Rolling Stone Country proclaimed is “a gently rocking country tune brimming with Springsteen-inspired, vehicle-based nostalgia…finds the two vocalists singing about how they come from a long line of Chevys and Fords.’

KEMBA
SATURDAY, 2:30 PM


It makes perfect sense Kemba calls The Bronx—the birthplace of hip-hop—home. He literally carries the genre with him everywhere. Making a name for himself as a fan favorite under the name of YC The Cynic, he dropped a series of lauded projects and songs from 2010 through 2013. Adopting the moniker Kemba, he ignited his rise with the album Negus. In addition to a highly cited interview on Real Late W/Peter Rosenberg, he joined Kendrick Lamar on stage during an American Express-sponsored concert live-streamed online.

POP SMOKE 
SATURDAY, 3:10 PM


Christened “Brooklyn Rap’s Homecoming King” by New York Times and averaging over 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify already, Pop Smoke is undoubtedly the next breakout artist from Brooklyn.   Pop Smoke’s  2019 mixtape Meet The Woo has already racked up nearly 20 million total streams in addition to boasting high-profile cameos from Nicki Minaj and Skepta.

As part of his recent inclusion on the XXL “Freshman Cover,” the outlet proclaimed him “one of the hottest new acts in the game” and claimed “the 22-year-old rapper has drawn comparisons to legends like E-40 and Juvenile due to the off-kilter flow that finds him rapping against the current of whatever beat he’s on.” Echoing this sentiment, Complex wrote, “his cadence—skittering and almost comical—doesn’t fit neatly into the current (or past) landscape of hip-hop. But that’s exactly what makes him so interesting.”

Detroit native Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars. The one-two combination of spirit and sass announced her as fiery female force in 2019 after quietly amassing 30 million-plus on-demand streams, garnering the BMI Social Star Award and “Issa Wave Award” at the BET Social Awards, and inking a deal with Republic Records. An unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her own music career. She made waves on the 2014 independent debut mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll. Following 2016’s Trapped In The Dollhouse, she developed a presence as a touring force and earned coveted co-signs from Drake, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Remy Ma, and many more. The 2018 The Vault mixtape captured #1 on multiple mixtape sites as her debut single for Republic Records “Ice Me Out” and its 2 Chainz-assisted official remix clocked 18 million-plus total streams. Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 23 million global streams and features the break out single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 10 million YouTube/VEVO views independently.

RENÉE ZELLWEGER & SAM SMITH IS OUT

Today, Republic & Decca Records release the brand-new single “Get Happy”, featuring original vocals by Renée Zellweger and Sam Smith, from the forthcoming JUDY The Original Soundtrack out September 27. Listen HERE.

Says Sam Smith, “When I was 17 years old, I did a project on Judy Garland for my Film Studies A-Level. I was immediately immersed into the magic of Judy and her incredibly brave and triumphant story. She has remained as one of the icons of my life. She was one of the bravest humans out there and her vulnerability and honesty in her art still gives me goose bumps like it did the first time. 

It was truly an honour to sing with Renée. Nobody could have played Judy as well as Renée, and it is a career highlight for me to be singing with her, and in some small way, with Judy. I hope everyone loves the film as much as I did.” ​

The track coincides with the release of the highly-anticipated feature film in which Zellweger stars as Judy Garland, set for U.S. release on September 27.

JUDY the album features Zellweger’s breath-taking recordings of Judy Garland’s award-winning and most popular numbers, which have become some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including “For Once in My Life”, “Come Rain or Come Shine” and “Over the Rainbow”, all perfectly capturing the moving intensity of Garland’s electrifying performances.

Set for global release on September 27, JUDY the album marks 50 years since Judy Garland’s premature death in 1969, and 80 years since she shot to teenage stardom in The Wizard of Oz in 1939.

JUDY is a Pathé, BBC Films and Ingenious Media Presentation of a Calamity Films Production and is set for a U.S. nationwide theatrical release on September 27.
