Lots of people have already picked this up & commented on it, but as a long-term Plan B fan, I had to jump on the bandwagon.
In case you’ve not seen it, here’s the astonishingly good video for his next single: Ill Manors (language NSFW, by the way).
It’s worth checking out this interview with him from October 2011 if you want to hear more of his opinion on British society and government, and what he thinks needs to change (from 4:30 onwards). He’s a very passionate voice, and he speaks with intelligence and eloquence – something his recent speech at the TEDx festival only served to underline.
Everyone knows one person out there they can help who’s less fortunate than them. And I’m not talking about help financially. I’m talking about knowledge. Plant that seed. Find out what these kids are good at, or what they care about or what they like, and try and draw it out of them because it will change their lives.
If you’re talking about inspiring people, it’s good to sound like you mean it – and he does.
And more to the point, he’s certainly inspired me… how about you?
