“Too many protest singers, not enough protest songs”.
In a dazzling volte face from his Strickland Banks persona, Plan B has returned to his rap roots and is spitting fury and social commentary the likes of which has not been seen in the UK for far too long. Simply put, this could well be the most important piece of music released this year.
There is a lot of hype, controversy, misreporting and bullshit surrounding this track so we urge you, take time to not only listen to the song, to watch the video, but spend 15 minutes with the Plan B interview below where he explains his thought process behind the song and what he is trying to represent. One thing it is not, is the glorification of violence and gang culture.
