It’s no secret that we’re fans of Krept & Konan over on Nelipott. That’s why, when we got the double whammy of their new single and their tour dates, we just had to share them. Following on from the US-friendly Freak of the Week, Krept & Konan have well and truly gone back to their British grime roots in F.W.T.S.
Let’s get this out of the way first – F.W.T.S. stands for Fuck What They Say, and it’s this type of raw, off-the-cuff defiance that won Krept & Konan a MOBO in the first place, so it’s good to see a nod to their older fans in this song.
If you were in any doubt about Krept & Konan nodding to their grime roots on their upcoming debut, this song should soothe any worries. Not only that, but the full version on The Long Way Home features grime royalty, Skepta. If you fancy hearing the magic in action, you can pre-order The Long Way Home on iTunes and download the song immediately.
If you’ve already done the above, well, have we got a treat for you. The boys have just announced a headlining tour in support of #TheLongWayHome. The tickets are out now, priced between £13-£17, and you can find a list of dates below. We’ll see you there!
