Wherever there is political controversy these days, you can bet Plan B isn't far behind. For those still in the dark about his latest project, the singer, rapper, actor and director has depicted a particularly shocking side to life on London's gangs and forgotten estates for his new film iLL Manors. Fittingly, he's written an album's worth of material to soundtrack the flick.
'Lost My Way' combines soul for those who enjoyed his previous Strickland Banks LP with the gritty rapping style that fans who better know him as Ben Drew will already be familiar with. "Lost my way/ Fell down a hole/ No-one gonna come and save my soul," he spits with a sharp tongue over pummelling drums and a twisted piano hook. The result, as you'd expect, is brutally dark yet utterly compelling.
