The Perfect Plan
After a victorious 2011, the man otherwise known as Ben Drew is looking forward to breaking out of the studio where he has been busy putting the finishing touches to his eagerly awaited new album.
The phenomenal success of his most recent record The Defamation of Strickland Banks earned the East Londoner a string of prestigious gongs, including a BRIT and a Radio 1 Teen Award, as well as a host of high profile performances, such as last year's Big Weekend show stopper. The multi-skilled heart throb has also turned his talents to the world of film, with 2012 seeing him appear in several movies as well as showcasing his directing skills.
The rapper/crooner received early backing from 1Xtra in 2006, with Radio 1 being first to playlist material from the celebrated Strickland Banks project, which debuted at number 1 and went on to sell over a million copies.
