Reflections of a working writer and reader



Plan B

From London’s East End. Kind of a hip-hop thing.

Plan B has been placed fourth in the BBC’s Sound of 2006 new music survey. His repertoire includes semi-fictional stories and personal lyrics.

I’ve thought everything through, any questions you can throw at me I’ve got an answer for
, he says.

People make films about rape, about murder, and they’re just telling a story, right? So I’m just telling a story. The only difference is I’m doing it to music. They’ll go and watch a film and go ‘great film’. But you do it over music and they get worked up. They’re the ones who’ve got it twisted, not me, you know what I mean?

Yeah, I’m being very blunt and I’m using bad language but I’m just trying to portray something that’s real that happens in everyday life.

    Sounds like a whole lot of fun! Seriously though, I couldn’t understand a word of it. Are there any lyrics available? I’ve actually become rather interested in this man’s blunt and bad language message.

    I should think someone’s working on them. I loved this line: ur 30 act ur age u shud be ashamed if i was you id slit ma veins at the mains.

  3. For some strange reason I love that line too, John. But it’s not exactly Rogers & Hammerstein is it?

    I used to hate hip-hop and rap music. Then I discovered Tupac Shakur. There aren’t many other rap artists I can get into, but “Pac” was usually about so much more than just slinging words. He came at you with a message and a heart. I think of hip-hop and rap as the jazz/blues for the kids today. In another fifty years, there will be museums devoted to these artists.
