Manors Maketh The Man
He's already made the transition from underground hip hopper to blue-eyed soul boy du jour. Now Plan B has written and directe Ill Manors, a damning indictment of cameron's broken Britain, and is also about to star alongside Ray Winstone in a reboot of classic 70's cop caper The Sweeney ("Get dressed, you're nicked!") A wellied-up Stuart Clark meets him and his crew in a north Yorkshire forest.
Stuart Clark, 23 Aug 2012
All of which is of only minor concern compared to the news that, in what appears to be a Drake Vs. Chris Brown-style diss, Van Morrison has named his new album Born To Sing: No Plan B. Ben’s not going to let him get away with that, surely?
“Bring it fucking on!” he deadpans. “I doubt Van Morrison has a clue who I am, but there was a time I’d have been up for a row. Now I think the best way of retaliating is being more successful than anyone who’s dissing you. I’m not making art if I’m arguing with you or criticising somebody else. No fucker’s going to cost me a song!”
The Ill Manors soundtrack album is out on July 20 with The Sweeney hitting screens in September.
