The film, which stars Riz Ahmed, Nathalie Press and Dannielle Brent, will be released on June 6 and is set in Forest Gate in London. The film runs over the course of a few days, with six inter-linking short stories, represented by a different rap song, coming together at the end.

The soundtrack for iLL Manors, which features Plan B's recent single of the same name, will be released on June 25 via Atlantic Records.

Speaking to NME previously about the film in a video interview which you can watch by scrolling up to the top of the page and clicking, he said: "I was inexperienced and didn't have a lot of money, and I guess some people didn't like the fact I was making a film. I never went to film school, I didn't know the technical terms for films, so there was a lot of prejudice towards me."

He went on to add: "But then there was some people that really believed in my vision and gave me all the support I needed. So I'm glad the film was made the way it was, because the experience I've gained from it has been invaluable. I feel like I've been making films for many years now."

The rapper has also described the film as "the hip-hop musical version of Crash", adding: "But I don't want to call it a musical, because none of the actors start singing or dancing or anything. It's quite serious. It's just part of the films are narrated by music. If you can imagine my first record but with visuals… parts are just like a normal film, others are told by kind of music video storytelling."

Plan B will tour the UK this summer, playing seven shows in forests across the UK. The gigs begin at Thetford Forest on June 15 and then take in five further forests before finishing up on July 7 at Delamere Forest in Cheshire
