Plan B wants uncommercial second album

Wednesday, 27th Oct 2010

Plan B has stated that he wants his second album to have an underground sound and a hip hop feel.

The rapper, who has seen chart success with his record The Defamation of Strickland Banks, told BBC Newsbeat that he wants to leave commercial music behind.

"When I bring my next record out everybody's going to be, 'He's a fader, he's a one-hit wonder'," the 27-year-old said.

He added that people who care about his music will still be interested in what he records, which is what he considers to be the most important aspect of his career rather than chart-topping success.

The new record, The Ballad of Bellmarsh, has already been recorded and tells the Strickland Banks concept from a hip hop perspective.

Fans of his current sound can catch him on the road next March when the performer, real name Ben Drew, plays shows in cities including Manchester, Wolverhampton and Brighton.
