Fresh: Plan B – ‘Ill Manors’
Rapper-turned-director-turned-singer, Ben Drew – most commonly known as Plan B – made his return to the airwaves last night with the unleashing of his comeback single, 'iLL Manors', which marked his first musical offering since 2010’s 'The Defamation of Strickland Banks' album...
Debuted on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, the track will be available for download on March 25. An album and a film, which both go by the same name, will also be released in May. The self-written and self-directed film - which stars the likes of Riz Ahmed, Nathalie Press and Dannielle Brent - is set in Forest Gate, London, and centres around six inter-linking short stories, all represented by a different rap song.
The film has been described as a "hip-hop musical", with all the songs being performed by Plan B himself. The script is also said to be based on actual events, such as the star’s home being raided by armed police and a girl prostituting herself to repay a drug dealer. Deep!
