Plan B: 'I would love to work with Quentin Tarantino'
Ill Manors singer and director says he'd love to work with the 'Django Unchained' director
The rapper and singer last year made his directorial debut with 'ill Manors', which is set which is set amongst the council estates of east London. "I would love to work with Quentin Tarantino. Is that realistic? I have found in my life the people I want to work with, it usually happens but when I least expect it," he told Metro. "My life’s changed now. When I go up to people and tell them I have an idea, they listen. Before, people didn’t take me seriously."
The rapper also spoke about his charity, Each One Teach One, which will help teenagers from east London break into the music industry. "I still think fame can be an ugly thing unless you do the right thing with it. I feel I live in a make-believe world for a lot of the time…that’s why it is really important for me to return to the environment that I came from and work with those kids. It’s good to take a step out of the rat race and think about what you want to say to the world," he said.
