Plan B talks Ill Manners

Pity the poor music artist when he or she makes it big: where once he or she was dirt poor and had completely artistic freedom, now he or she has a bucket load of cash and loads of responsibilities. It's a hard life, innit?

It's the same for Plan B, you know: there he was, just bumbling along as an almost completely unknown rapper and making Ill Manners, when The Defamation Of Strickland Banks came out and made him a bona fide pop star, with a chart-topping album and his face in the papers. He says that his success made the hip-hop musical harder to make, as everyone wanted something they could put out on terrestrial telly; poor lamb, even the BBC were interested in him.
