Plan B unveils 'ill Manors' video
Plan B has unveiled the video for his new track, 'ill Manors'.
The rapper and actor had previously released a lyric video for the track but today (March 12) he unveiled the full clip.
Along with revealing the video for the politically charged track, Plan B also issued a statement with some background information about the song, with the lyrics about last year's London riots. He said:
"What happened in Tottenham in some ways I can understand, but what happened everywhere else in the country was opportunism. I won't justify it because I don't agree with it. In fact it upset me so much I want to change it, so I wrote this song to bring the issue back to the forefront of public conversation. I feel it has been swept under the carpet and forgotten about and it still needs to be properly addressed."
The statement continues: "Since the riots happened I haven't heard enough people within the public sector asking the two most important questions; 'Why did it happen and how can we prevent it from happening again?' Society needs to take some responsibility for the cause of these riots. Why are there so many kids in this country that don't feel they have a future, or care about having a criminal record? If you're born into a family that’s has enough money to educate you properly, you are privileged. You're not better than anyone else you’re just lucky. Certain sectors of middle England, not all of them, but the ignorant ones need to wake up and realise that...and stop ridiculing the poor and less fortunate. That is what this song is about."
