Plan B Ben DrewBenjamin Paul Ballance-Drew (born 22 October 1983), primarily known as Plan B or Ben Drew, is a British rapper, singer-songwriter, actor and film director from Forest Gate, London.  Plan B first emerged as a hip hop artist releasing his critically-acclaimed début album Who Needs Actions When You Got Words in 2006.  

His second studio album The Defamation of Strickland Banks (2010) was a soul record and went straight into the UK album chart at #1.  He has also collaborated with other artists such as Chase & Status most notably on the top ten single "End Credits" (2009).

Drew has also had a successful film career as an actor, with roles in Adulthood (2008), Harry Brown (2009) and 4.3.2.1 (2010).  In 2011, he will release Ill Manors his first film as a director.

Born and brought up in Forest Gate, East London, Plan B's mother, Georgie Atherton, worked and his father (Paul Ballance) played in a local classical band.  When Ben was two, his father walked out on the family leaving behind two children.  Growing up, Plan B felt an outcast from the rest of the school pupils.  

"We weren't working class but we weren't middle class, we were in the void in-between.  I've always felt like a social outcast." — Plan B, The Telegraph (15 June 2006).

From 11, Plan B attended Anglo European School in Ingatestone, Essex and after leaving at 15, he was transferred to Tom Hood School, a specialist Science College in Leytonstone, London and left with three GCSEs.  Plan B taught himself how to play guitar at 14, first playing Blur and Oasis with friends, then going on to write his own R&B love songs.  At 18, feeling uncomfortable with R&B, he turned towards rap and hip hop music and wrote "Kidz", inspired by the murder of Damilola Taylor.

"The whole reason for calling myself Plan B was that I was doing this sweet-boy Justin Timberlake (stuff), but I never felt comfortable...  When I started rapping, it was easier for me to feel comfortable." —Plan B, USA Today (15 March 2007).
