Plan B Intro:
(Real name Ben Drew) is a rapper from Forest Gate, London. He is signed to 679 Recordings, home to fellow UK rapper The Streets
. His unique sound is characterised by his use of acoustic beats and lyrics involving drugs, rape, murder and underage sex. He was placed fourth in the BBC's "Sound of 2006" competition.
His controversial lyrical content has seen him dubbed "The British Eminem", but he says he is "just telling a story" and that he is "just trying to portray something that's real that happens in everyday life". These stories are largely semi-fictional but include personal content as well. Inspired by the murder of 10-year-old Damilola Taylor, Plan B
tells the story of a 14-year-old who kills, rapes and orders people to "hand over your phone, your money and your Pokemon cards". Drew points out, in a possibly subtle jibe at American rappers, that his life growing up is not interesting enough to write songs about, so he takes on characters in his songs to make interesting and, hopefully, thought provoking music.
