UK rap duo Krept & Konan appeared to hibernate all summer 2017, only to emerge with heat for the winter, ending a period of inactivity with a impressive double visual and subsequent double mixtape drop.
Dropping projects ‘7 Days’ and ‘7 Nights,’ in the process the pair managed to notch yet another chart milestone, proving fans are still firmly behind them.
Claiming a Guinness World Record for ‘highest charting UK album for an unsigned act’, in 2013, two years later, debut album The Long Way Home also became the highest charting British Rap album in UK chart history, debuting at no. 2. Now, they’ve now added the impressive feat of having both projects chart in the UK top ten.
Krept took to Instagram to share the news.
