Plan B Prepares For New Album
Ben Drew also says that he is going to break the UK before heading over to America...
Plan B, is soon to release an album off the back of his successful single She Said.
Plan B told BBC Newsbeat: "It's called The Defamation Of Strickland Banks because the media built him up and now they're tearing him down. It happens a lot in this country. It's basically six different short stories that are linked together but are all narrated by a different hip-hop song.
"It's reminiscent of the first album (2006's Who Needs Actions When You Got Words) - it's very dark hip-hop. It's about forgotten ends in London. I'm from one of them - Forest Gate. I want to tell a story about what I know. It's kind of like a musical.”
Plan B went on to add that he is planning to focus on breaking the UK before he even thinks about heading over to America:
"I'll focus on selling records here. If we break it here, that's the only time you even bother wasting money over there. I've done it before, I brought the whole band over there and it just hurt me in the pocket. Afterwards I looked at it and just thought, 'That was a waste of money and a waste of my time'.”
The Defamation Of Strickland Banks is released on 12 April
