After two years on the road and a lot of time spent in Asia, including a sold out tour with Scoop Deville, US artist Koncept now returns to the UK for his 'Champagne Konny' tour.
Koncept has been through his recent ups and downs like everyone else, but the lows are what make you who you are, and for Koncept, they have given him inner strength, only helping him to keep building success.
Off the back of two single releases into his new album 'Champagne Konny', Koncept discovered a new perspective on his career and life in general, and this new project is his recharge into a new era!
'Champagne' portrays a grand, luxurious, yet wild adventurous side of Koncept with strong references to The Great Gatsby, portraying a metaphorical comparison of Koncept’s personality and lifestyle.
Wheras in 'Watch The Sky Fall 2' featuring the legendary Royce Da 5'9, Koncept brings his smooth effortless sounding East coast flavor, and with Royce’s witty lyrics and Detroit charisma, this is a song for every hip hop fan across the board.
Champagne Konny is due for release August 2019.
Koncept, the Queens-raised, globe-trotting emcee made a name for himself in the hip-hop mecca, from working at Fat Beats Records to releasing an album through Sony Music, and touring around the world.
Following the release of his groundbreaking underground debut album “Awaken” which included the No1 single “Watch The Sky” that featured Royce da 5'9 and was produced by Marco Polo, Koncept received an endorsement by ed Bull which financed his next EP ‘The Fuel.’
The release showcased a riveting underdog tale told by Koncept filled with ecstatic anticipation for the real-life successes on the horizon.
After this, Koncept flew out to Seoul, South Korea for a two-week tour sponsored by Miller Genuine Draft, and Jameson Whiskey. The performances developed into a series of more shows and bookings, and then a partnership with Sony Music Asia for the release his next album, "14 Hours Ahead".
“14 Hours Ahead” isn't just the time difference between Asia and his home of New York City, but this music is the reflection of envisioning your future and your dreams, and manifesting them into reality. It's learning, growing, and believing in yourself every step of the way.
Koncept is a living example of this.
In his career, Koncept has been featured alongside an abundance of artists including: Rick Ross, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, Macklemore, Wiz Khalifa, The Roots, Joey Bada$$, Green Day, and performed alongside many contemporaries such as: A$AP Mob, Ghostface Killah, Pharoahe Monch, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Roots, Royce da 5'9, and Joell Ortiz.
