Plan B: 'If I don't help my charity I'll lose integrity'

'She Said' hitmaker Plan B recently founded the Each One Teach One foundation to help disadvantaged youths and revealed that he plans to be very involved with it.

Speaking to London's Evening Standard newspaper about the charitable organisation, he explained that it's important to be active instead of just throwing money at the project: "I don't think there is enough opportunity for young people in certain areas."

"A lot of them are just leaving school, they're not strong academically but better suited for practical things. We found a handful of organisations that give practical training in east London and I want to give them the support they need."

He has also vowed to donate £1 from every concert ticket he sells to boost the fundraising for Each One Teach One, adding that he wants to help where he can and thinks it'll also be beneficial to his art:

"I think if I don't do this I will lose integrity. I've always been outspoken about certain issues, now I'm in a position where if I didn't do something it looks kind of hypocritical. In the long run I think it will be healthy to my art and my music, working with these kids."
