Plan B

Plan B

Ben Drew, better known as Plan B won 3 Ivor Novello Awards in England yesterday.  I really love his album “The Defamation of Strickland Banks.”  It’s got so many styles of music including soul, rap, pop, jazz and I think every song on it is great.  Most of the world has caught on, but not surprisingly, the album is too genre defying for America.  Plan B spoke about not making it big in America and he said this:

“I’m too white for the black radio stations and I’m too black for white radio stations so nobody knows where to place me.  It just seems to be a lot of cock sucking that has to go on in order to get your music to get played to the masses and I’m just not prepared to suck cock really.” – Plan B

I really hope he enjoys success in the States. I’ve seen a lot of bands over the last few years that I think are really great and they can’t seem to make a splash here.  It’s very sad considering some of the drivel that is chart topping, but the old adage rings true once again – the masses are asses.

In other Plan B news, his track “Hard Times” has been re-released featuring guest vocals from Elton John and Paloma Faith.  The proceeds of the single will be donated to relief efforts in Japan and Pakistan.
