Plan B has announced his intentions to step away from being a public figure during 2013 in order to regain a sense a normality and in turn find some new inspiration for future endeavours. The news came during an interview with The Sun, in which the recent MOBO Award Winner noted that it was time to take a break.
“I want to take a year out from being photographed and going to shows. I’m living the dream I guess, a red carpet is rolled out everywhere I go. People treat me differently. But the only way I can keep on making music about real life is to live in normality, and the last three years I haven’t been. It’s been touring, awards shows and stuff that’s great fun — but I’m an artist and I need inspiring. It’ll be nice to get away from that celebrity circuit,” Plan B told The Sun.
Plan B, real name Ben Drew, won Best Male and Best Hip-Hop/Grime Performer at the 17th MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards over the weekend, which was hosted at Echo Arena in Liverpool. As noted by Stereoboard, the talented rapper has released both a film and album by the name of Ill Manors in 2012 while starring in The Sweeny, which also came out earlier this year.
