Plan B - Plan B Battling Killer Schedule To Further Career

Subscribe to Plan B alerts

British singer/rapper Plan B fears his hectic schedule is "killing him", but refuses to slow down because he has the rest of his life to take it easy.
The 27 year old has been in huge demand since appearing in British films Adulthood and Harry Brown and releasing his chart-topping second album The Defamation of Strickland Banks last year (10).
He has been inundated with work offers and touring opportunities, taking him away from his family and friends and leaving him exhausted.
But Plan B - real name Benjamin Drew - is adamant he wouldn't have it any other way, and insists he can concentrate on relaxing once he's made his mark.
He tells NME, "I've been offered everything I ever wanted at the same time. It's so hard to say no, you just sometimes wish maybe you could have held back a little while to give you the time you need. I might not get another opportunity to do this and I've taken on all this work and it's come close to killing me. If it means I have to work harder and don't have a personal life and don't have a holiday, well f**k it, because I have the rest of my life to sit on my a**e and do nothing."
