Watch Krept & Konan Cover ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’ with Live Band

Rising hip-hop duo Krept & Konan stopped by BBC Radio 1Xtra this week and covered The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” with a live band.
Though they’ve been a group since 2009, it wasn’t until their Jeremih-assisted single “Freak of the Week” that the London rappers really took off. The dancehall-influenced song, which features production from DJ Mustard, was the second most-downloaded track in May on DJcity, and in June they signed a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK.
Watch their performance above, and grab “Freak of the Week” and its remixes on DJcity.

The dancehall-influenced track was produced by DJ Mustard and features Jeremih on the hook. It’s racked up over a half-million SoundCloud plays since its release two weeks ago.
The track samples the “Playground” riddim, which was made famous by Bennie Man’s 1997 crossover hit, “Who Am I.”
On July 6, Krept and Konan will release their debut album, The Long Way Home, which includes appearances by Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Emeli Sande, Rick Ross and Jeremih, according to Sony/ATV.
