Ben Drew gives Stafford crowd 'the pain'
The rapper, real name Ben Drew, who played the 4 Music Stage stage with his live band, also started his set with another cover, Reel 2 Reel‘s ‘I Like To Move It’.
Before covering Nutini‘s ‘Coming Up Easy’, he asked the crowd “who smokes weed?” before adding “I always like to think this is a song about smoking weed.”
After later asking the crowd “who the fuck is ready to feel the pain?”, Drew played his version of Seal‘s ‘Kiss From A Rose’, before including a skat of Eminem‘s ‘Forgot About Dre’ in the middle of the track.
Plan B played:
‘I Like To Move It’
‘Writings On The Wall’
‘Coming Up Easy’
‘Welcome To Hell’
‘What You Gonna Do’
‘Kill From A Rose’/’Forgot About Dre’
‘Stay Too Long’
