This week on we caught up with Koncept to find out more about him and what he has been up to…
Who are you?
I am Koncept. Rapper. Musician. Artist. Some people know me as Champagne Konny. My new album Champagne Konny drops August 16th.
What do you do?
I rap. I make music. I make art. I put everything I have and that I am into it.
What are you currently working on?
My new album Champagne Konny is done. It releases on August 16th. I start my tour the same day the album drops in Czech Republic at Hip Hop Kemp. Then the UK Manchester, Birmingham, and London!
What are you currently enjoying (tv shows, movies, podcasts, ice cream?)
I haven’t been watching much tv just because I’m been super busy preparing this album. But on my days off I try to go to the beach and listen to the ocean. I live in LA so I’m fortunate to have it near me.
I really want to go see the new Quentin Tarantino movie which I’m hoping to try and see whilst I’m in the UK.
My favourite ice cream is pistachio. It’s amazing!
Whenever I get free time I try to fly back to NY to see my family and hang out with Champagne Nanny.
What is your advice for today?
My final advice is to never give up. Believe in yourself and keep going. No matter the hurdles, don’t ever stop. Trust the process.
Koncept is no stranger to the hip hop scene, Queens raised and a former member of New York hip hop crew Brown Bag Allstars he has gone on to feature alongside a number of artists including Rick Ross, The Roots, travis Scott, and Wiz Khalifa (to name a few).
After a couple of years on the road and some time spent in Asia Koncept now returns to the UK to promote his new album ‘Champagne Konny’ which is released on the 16th August – give it a listen!
