Krept & Konan's Inspiration Comes From Anywhere...Even The Bathroom
The current Brand New For 2015 leaders talk their breakthrough release 'Don't Waste My Time'...
Inspiration comes to us all in different ways. Some have a muse, some seek it in poetry, some, like our next MTV Brand New For 2015 nominees Krept & Konan can find it anywhere - even whilst cleaning the bathroom.
The duo who took an early lead in our vote reminisced on the inspiration behind their first major label release Don't Waste My Time which featured on their heralded Young Kingz mixtape back in 2013.
"The idea was really like 'don't waste my time'!" Konan said. "I made up the hook actually when I was cleaning my bathroom. I was cleaning the bath, literally, and I think someone was wasting (my time). I was like 'they're wasting my time'.
"I was angry when I was doing it though," he continued, "but then I thought 'oh that could go into a chorus, hold on, lightbulb'! I got my phone out, done a voice note, carried on cleaning the bath then, yeah that was the last song added to the mixtape. It wasn't really gonna make it but by fate it did and then, yeah man it just kind of skyrocketed off."
