M.I.A. – “Internet Connection” Buraka Som Sistema (Radio Edit)
Raised in Forest Gate, London, Ben Drew aka Plan B‘s album, The Defamation of Strickland Banks (out in the US on April 12), debuted at #1 on the UK album charts and hasn’t left the Top 10 since its release. Influenced highly by his love of classic Motown and his appreciation for Eminem, actor and musician Plan B raps and sings in his own accent on “Prayin’,” “Stay Too Long,” and “Love Goes Down.” Now he’s released remixes of these songs by Breakage, Pendulum, Danny Byrd and Doctor P.
