Plan B 'cool' with PM liking his album

Plan B thinks it would be 'cool' if British Prime Minister David Cameron likes his new album.
The politically charged rapper - who penned his last single 'ill Manors' about the riots in London last year - would be surprised and impressed if the UK leader is a fan of his work, but it wouldn't make him want to meet him.
The musician - real name Ben Drew - told Shortlist magazine: 'I think it would be cool if he liked [the album]. You can't treat politicians like they're some alien race. But obviously I wouldn't go straight back and say, 'I really like David Cameron, too - let's have tea and f***ing scones together,' because that's never going to happen.'
The 'She Said' star worked all hours to complete his latest LP, also called 'ill Manors', and he relied on vodka mixed with energy drink Red Bull to keep him going.
Speaking about the recording process, he added: 'Vodka. Red Bull. That's [how I coped]. I lived in the studio for six weeks. The day before the album had to be finished there were three songs that weren't done.
'One didn't even have lyrics. So I was up all night, smashing the vodka, writing and re-writing. I went a bit mental, to be honest.
'It's not ideal working in that kind of environment - even if you're writing sad, negative s**t, you need to be happy, and I was just f***ing drained.'
Plan B also released a film called 'ill Manors' - his directorial debut - this year. The movie is British crime drama which focuses on gritty inner-city London life.
