Welcome to my first piece for Musician of the Month.
Came up with this idea purely because I want to introduce you all to some of my all time favourite musicians, who I deem underrated and need more knowledge and appreciation of their work.
So for this month’s choice, I’ve chosen London-based rapper turned soul artist, Plan B.
After debuting his first ever album ‘Who Needs Actions When You Got Words’ back in 2006, I have watched Plan B (aka Ben Drew) grow as a musician.
The Easter of 2010 then saw the release of his 4x Platinum selling album ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’ which showcased Drew’s versatile vocal talents as well as his impeccable story/lyric writing.
The aim of the album was to tell a story about a man being wrongfully sent to prison, which Drew beautifully tells through the use of soul and rap.
In 2012, Drew then released a rap soundtrack album called ‘ill Manors’ – which just like the previous album, told a story and was linked to his first directorial film of the same name.
Now, Plan B is back and better than ever, releasing his first ever single in 5 years.
And a lot has changed.
Here’s his new single ‘In The Name of Man’. Don’t forget to check out the rest of Plan B’s music on Spotify.
