Plan B- "iLL Manors." Coming May 2012.
Plan B is back! The British rapper and crooner has announced plans to release the movie “iLL Manors” on May 4, 2012 (details for the rest of the world are TBA as of press time). The premise of the film will be six inter-linking short stories, represented by a different rap song, coming together at the end. A soundtrack to accompany the film will be released at the same time. If you don’t know Plan B’s album “The Defamation of Strickland Banks,” you are missing out! It’s filled with soul, rap and is the perfect remedy to the mediocre superstars of 2011.

Singer Ben Drew, who is better known as Plan B, is going to be a very busy man in 2011. He’s currently on tour in support of his soulful/pop album “The Defamation of Strickland Banks,” which is up for a ton of awards internationally. The singer also announced that a film entitled “Ill Manors,” which he directed, is aiming to be released in early 2012. Plan B notes that before November 2011, he needs to write the soundtrack to the film, which is a multi-character story, set in the tough streets of East London where everyone is fighting for respect. He’s also putting the finishing touches on his hip-hop album “The Ballad of Belmarsh,” which he also hopes to release before the end of this year. “The Defamation of Strickland Banks” will probably get a US release date this year as well, and you know what that means – more live shows! If you get the chance to see Plan B live, I highly recommend it. His voice is amazing and his music is very catchy. Good luck B!
