British rapper turned crooner is crossing seas with success. Ben Drew also known as Plan B emerged onto the London scene back in 2006 with his debut album "Who Needs Actions When You Got Words" that offered raps and rhymes that were comparable to his mate Mike Skinner of The Streets. Greatly influenced by his love for Motown and an avid appreciation for rap, it is no surprise his U.K released 2010 concept album "The Defamation of Strickland Banks" went straight to number one on the U.K. album charts.
With several nods from across seas we welcome him to the states with open soul-anticipating arms. His latest album offers this rapper outfitted as a British soul singer belting out tunes about love's joys and pains and a rise to fame.
Songs performed: "She Said," "Traded in my Cigarettes," and "Prayin'."
