Oi! I said Oi! What you looking at you little rich boy!
You probably recognize the catchy lyrics from the latest single released by Ben Drew AKA Plan B. The new song 'Ill Manors' deals with the 2011 London riots and features as a soundtrack for the movie of the same name, directed by none other than Ben Drew. The Guardian described it as 'the first great mainstream protest song in years' and it became an instant hit on the music blogosphere. Having first emerged onto the scene in 2006 with the critically acclaimed album 'Who Needs Action When You Got Words' Plan B went onto to produce the UK Number 1 album 'The Defamation on Strickland Banks' in 2010 and win numerous awards, including the 2010 “Q“ magazine award for the best young artist, and best British male performer of 2011 at the Brit Awards.
