Plan B: 'I'd be honoured to work with Odd Future'
Plan B has said that he would be "honoured" to work with Odd Future.

Speaking to NME, the rap and soul star – real name Ben Drew – revealed that he was a big fan of Tyler, The Creator and co, and would be interested in collaborating with them in the future.

When asked what he made of the rap collective, Plan B replied: "I love Odd Future, I love Tyler, The Creator, I love the lyrics of Earl Sweatshirt, as a young man, I'm still waiting to see what he drops."

Asked if he would be interested in a collaboration with them, meanwhile, he answered:

Yeah. I'd be honoured if they looked at me in that way and thought that I was someone they'd wanna work with. So of course I would, but I doubt that will happen, you know.


Plan B will release his new film and album, both of which are called 'Ill Manors', this May. The film, which stars Riz Ahmed, Nathalie Press and Dannielle Brent, will be released on May 4 and is set in Forest Gate in London. The plot runs over the course of a few days, with six inter-linking short stories - each represented by a different rap song – which come together at the end.

The soundtrack LP for the movie, meanwhile, will be released on May 7 via Atlantic Records. Speaking about the album, Plan B said: "You could call 'Ill Manors'' bassline, soul, hip-hop. The album has the lyrical depth of my first record but the musical composition is light years ahead as it's informed by everything I've learnt in the last five years - writing, producing and playing with a live band. I feel I'm better than I've ever been."
